Peace is the power at the heart of God
When I first contacted you two months ago, I was waiting to get Mavyret. I finally started taking it around June 19th.
The mental toll and effect Hep C has on relationships
This disease took such a mental toll on me. A single mom with a teenage daughter. It goes so deep. I had to tell her. I felt like I had to protect her from myself. Even though I have no idea where I got it from, I had to answer questions about drugs which I never even saw. I had to go through her losing faith in me. I’m a widow and did everything I could to keep her from acting out. She stayed strong as I went to counseling with her. I wish I had not followed the doctor's advice to tell her. She was afraid of losing me. She would look at me and just cry, cry, cry. It made it so much harder for me. So, I told her it went away on its own. I had to sneak and take the meds. Hoping to see the light someday. In my heart, I apologized to everyone I may have wronged in my life and asked for forgiveness and thanked them for the lessons they taught me in my life.
Hep C is not my fault
This disease cut through my soul. Yet I realized in life the race is not to the quick and the battle is not to the strong in this life. And to all the people who looked down on me either implied or not hurt me deep to my core. This disease is not my fault. Think of all the people in the world who have Hep C and you don't know about it, and the sad part is neither do they.
Finally there is peace4 weeks of my treatment.
Lauren thank you for being on this journey with me…Curious
