I am on treatment and did not get my viral load re-tested until week 13, did shot #15 last night and just today finally got my results back...my viral load is undectable, so I will continue tx for another 33 weeks. I am geno type 1b and my viral load was originally 1,300,000 and my log dropped from 6.01 to 1.7 thank goodness. I inject 180mcg of pegasys once a week and take 1200 mg of ribavirin daily. I was mentally prepared to stop the treatment if they came back and said it was not working, but guess it is PTL, so onward I go. I have been waiting on these results forever it seems and have been kinda concerned and frustrated having to wait so long. I also have the tx exhaustion, so have not been on the message boards as much. Just wanted to say thank you for all of your support and that I love this Hep C support group so much. I mean I can tell other people in my life about the Hep C and some of them actually listen, but no one gets it really or understands like my DS family. I could not have done the 15 weeks of tx I have already endured without DS, and I will continue to need you all, more than ever, to make it now to the finish line. Thank you dear friends, I plan to be here to support you guys as well, as we are all each other's Daily Strength. Hugs Jeannie

A deep longing accompaniedby the deepest Love some days. The heavy fog mayreturn and the next day, it may recede.Once again, it's...
