Leave Me Alone When I’m on Hep C Treatment.

Leave Me Alone When I’m on Hep C Treatment

I remember a time when company was always welcome. If friends dropped by, my door was always open. Don’t get me wrong. I still love swapping stories and sharing meals with friends and loved ones, I have to save up energy for that. When you’re on Hepatitis C treatment or just plain tired, don’t you want some down time? Lately, I’ve found that there are times when I want everyone to leave me alone when I’m sick. Do you feel like saying: Leave me alone when I’m on Hep C Treatment?
Here is a list of excuses you can give to get some time alone.

Leave me alone when I’m on Hepatitis C Treatment because:

  • I’m so dang tired. Hepatitis C Treatment wears me out. I can’t get up and answer the door. Besides, I don’t want to get dressed this month.
  • I’m a hot mess. If there is anything to gripe about today, I’m on it. You don’t want any of this. Not right now.
  • It’s the anniversary of the time I got a cavity. All I can think about is how traumatic it was to loose that much tooth. They replaced it with a filling, but I never felt the same. I really can’t even talk about without feeling the loss all over again. Call next week.
  • My cell phone wears me out. When my phone bings and rings too much, it makes me nervous. I may ignore you. Plus, typing on a chiclet keyboard makes my fingers feel crunchy. I may not text back real quick. Calling me after I ignore your text won’t work either.
  • Making plans is hard. I want to go out, honest I do. But when it gets closer to the time to be ready to go, it sounds more and more like work. All that fuss makes me tired just thinking about it.
  • A few years ago I got the hiccups – real bad ones. They could come back anytime and it makes talking really hard and painful.
  • I can’t think of anything to say today. If you come see me, you will do all of the talking. Then I’ll feel anxious and panic. I’m afraid I’ll slap you silly. Better off to leave me alone in silence for a while.
  • My allergies are bothering me. I’m allergic to people right now. I broke out in hives after the last person left here. Give it a few weeks and my immune system may build up. I’ll let you know.

Hint – If you get the feeling that they’re coming anyway, you can always throw these lines out:

  • I’m clipping my toenails. They’re kind of thick and if you are coming over, bring a file and some clippers. After you soak my feet and rub lotion in, you can get right to work.
    Would you bring a mop and a plunger? I’m needing the bathroom cleaned up.
  • Oh, and since you’re on the way, stop and buy storage bags. Let’s clean out that freezer. You can help me cook meals for the week.

The truth is that we’re always loving our friends, family, and caregivers. But when it’s time for a break – you gotta do what you gotta do to get some rest.
