Long Over Due Update.

I was going to blog about my experience with Hep C therapy.  I found it very depressing, so I didn’t want to write about it.  So I have neglected my blog.  But now I will have to change my blog name.  Therapy is over. And it was a failure.  The virus has grown resistant to the medicine.  So I am not cured, and there isn’t any other treatment. 

Now I have to wait, and see if anything new comes down the pike in the next few years.  That sucks. 

I have been living at home, with my mother and her husband.  That has been hard, too much old baggage has come back to haunt me. 

I hope to  move back to Alaska, where my sons are. But until that far away time I am going to get a job. And I am going to blog about things that really interest me.  I didn’t want to discuss politics or any of the other things that stir people up. But damn I can’t even comment on Facebook these days without causing a dust-up.  So you know I’m just going to go for it.  Who knows I might get hate mail. 


Tomorrow is Day One.

I have neglected my blog for a few months.  I’ve been in shock since late September when I found out I had Hepatitis C. Don’t know how I got it, and it really doesn’t matter at this point.  Then I found out how much treatment is going to cost. Even with insurance my part would have been $7,000 a month.  Yes, there are three zeros behind that seven.

Since I have a crap job, with no money. I don’t have to pay for the medicine after all.  But I will end up paying for the twice a month blood tests, after my insurance maxes out.

Tomorrow is the day I am going to start treatment.  From all I have read and from what my doctor says it will be awful. You know it is bad when the doctor says “its rough, are you ready for this?” Well,do I have a choice?

I plan on blogging about this and other things as I feel able. It will give me something to focus on besides wanting to throw up.  I made no promises but I hope to write at least once a week.
