: : Thanks, Pat from Texas. By the way, I'm coming out of my denial, man what trip this HCV is. I just got some lab back, but haven't had time to talk to the doc about it. He said in a phone message to me that my viral count is low but I have geno-type 1a. 800,000 virus per cub/ml.

: : Bob from California
: Glad to hear from Pat from Texas. I cannot find any support groups here in Wichita Falls. Could sure use one. I have been on Combo therapy for 3 months and it has been difficult to work and just cope with life in general. The depression is awful, along with the other side effects. Do you know who I could reach in this area of Texas?

: Bob,
: You go through a lot of different stages once you know about your HCV. At first I thought it was the end of life, then I worried about where I got it from, I'm passed all of that now and just working with this treatmennt. Check for a support group in your area. I'll never forget the first mmeting I went to, I thought it was so depressing everyone talking about how bad they felt, or about how brain dead you get from this treatment. Now it is uplifting to go a share with people who are going through the same thing as us a when we forget what we were talking about we all laugh. It's strange how the interferon makes you very forgetful. I use to let it bother me but now I just laugh. Just remenber your NOT ALONE.
: PAT from Texas
