Today I got a call regarding my blood work.
STILL UN-DETECTED!!!!!
I took Harvoni for several months last year and it seems to have worked.
This is my 3rd set of labs and I'm still undetected. 

I was diagnosed in 1997 with "Non A Non B Terminal Hepatitis" I was told at that time I would likely die within the next 10 or so years. The Dr said I could try a grueling treatment they had that was crazy expensive and most likely would not work.
I remember going to a bar to collect myself and have a drink or two before going home. Telling my daughter was a chore I wouldn't wish on anyone. She had just been thru hell herself and had finally landed back in my home and was finally safe. I debated telling her, but I had to so she could get tested. At that time it was unclear if she could get it from me thru day to day sharing of living space and casual contact. She was negative and still is. 

In 1998 I began my 1st treatment of Interferon and Ribavirin. At that time it was an injection every other day and 6 Ribavirin pills a day. Along with that I got 7 or 8 other scripts to battle the side effects of the treatment. It was hellish to say the least. At that time I was a single mom working 2 jobs and trying to go to school. I lasted about 4 months on treatment and was on the verge of losing my jobs. I had already dropped school and I just couldn't even. I was sick as a dog. I quit the treatment.

In 2001 I began my 2nd round of Interferon and Ribavirin treatments. I was told that this was a better form of it but that yes I would still get sick as a dog. I completed the year long treatment and I honestly don't know how I did it living alone and caring for my mother and grandmother at the same time. I lost about 40lbs, my hair, got hooked on some of the meds I was given to battle the side effects and sunk into massive debt as I was unable to work and used credit cards to pay for co pays and living expenses. I eventually filed for bankruptcy and lost my car. All for nothing as the treatment did not work. Non responder is what I was told. 

In 2003 I was told about another new treatment that was supposed to be the thing that was going to work. I had just begun to feel like myself again after the last time and was just not interested. I was eventually talked into trying it and against my better judgement I did begin the new drug trial study. It was harder mentally and emotioonally than the previous drugs. I was physically sick too. At the end of it I was still a Non Responder but was once again hooked on the "helper" drugs. I had a sea of pill bottles but the kicker was the endless supply of Xanax I was given freely. Being an addict I got hooked in a big way. This time around I lost my job, my car and eventually my marriage.

When I was 1st approached about Harvoni I said absolutely not interested. I remained not interested for a couple of years. No way. I had kicked all of the drugs. The anti depressants, the pain pills, the xanax all of it... not on any of it anymore. I'm working, I feel good, I'm over all the crap of the last few years, I'm more " me" than I've been in a decade or more.... No Thanks!!!

My grandbaby was born in 2014 and I could literally feel the paradigm shift in my world. I had recently changed jobs, had decent ins and after doing my due diligence I agreed to try it. I was scared of once again losing everything but it felt worth it. 
The side effects were mild and I continued working while taking it and I only told a couple of close friends I was trying the new drug. 

It seems to have worked!!! I'm coming up on a year of un fucking detected viral load!! I still have some of the effects of the Hep C on my liver and kidneys but I'm UN FLIPPIN DETECTED!!!

Sorry for the long post

that Zep's version of Stairway To Heaven is not even in the library.  I thought it was and even thought I heard it played a couple of times over the years.  Guess not.  Its no big deal.  I only learned it because I was going to post a link to the song comments because I ran into a discussion of the similarities between it and Traffic's John Barleycorn to show a real discussion.  Oh well.  I did post the link to JB anyway.

Be interesting to see if anyone click's on it.
