Hello, I am on about day 26 or so taking Ribavirin 600 mg Am 400 mg Pm and Sovaldi 400 mg daily. I have Hep c 2a/2c I don't know what my viral load is but what I do know is I feel like I am dying from this medication. I also have CHF that is controled with medication. I have no energy I feel like I am going to pass out just going to the bathroom. I cry most days, due to I live with a monster who is very verbally abusive to me. I am changing my living arrangments but I am unable to pack or anything. My question is does this ever get better? What can I do to help with the fatige I am taking protein via boost once a day and it does help some. Please help I am so ready to stop this just to get back to what I call normal....

Just found out I have stage 4 liver disease and chirosis. I think the worse part is, is all the questions I am having to answer my family. It is exhausting. I know they want to know every detail, but it is really hard to talk about. I just want to crawl into bed and sleep my life away. My loving daughter said she would have more questions once she processes everything. I can not take it. Now I have to get an MRI and upper GI. The doctor says I have to have a upper GI every 6 months. I wish I had cancer, at least that is treatable, this isn't. The doctors think they can treat the Hep C but the liver disease can not be fixed. Hope this site helps me understand, vent, and seek guidance.

April 5,2015 I was diagnosed with hep c, geno 1 . my doctor says I am the first patient he has seen that within weeks contracting it having such severe symptoms. Scares the life out of me. I spent six long days in the hospital running it threw my head. The pain, was so horrible that I prayed the lord would just take me. Even morphine and daludid just wouldn't take the edge off. I was getting shots every two hours for my pain. In reality I found out it was just making it worse on my liver. I am not sure how much my body, mind and heart can Handel up to twelve months waiting to see if I can get this medicine. I've spent most of april in the hospital. Ohio medicaid just doesn't want to pay for "the richmans cure". I worked my years and got sick with copd. I have had surgeries, children, kidney stones, I was in a abusive relationship, but never in my life have I ever experienced a pain like this. I have never so much wanted god to just let me sleep and not wake until now. I'm in so much pain that I am scared to take the percicet meds because tomorrow will be worse and harder on my liver. I don't have the heart to tell my kids what is wrong with me. I am greatful my husband is here, but we already have our marriage dangling before us. I'm scared that I won't get the meds. I'm scared that my liver will just give out before I get the chance to even try it.

my husband has hep c and chirossis of the liver. he also has been diagnosed with hepatic enchepalophty (spelling is probably wrong). he will be starting treatment on a newly released drug as soon as we find out if we can get help from the pharmacutical company that makes it. as of now it is so hard dealing with his emotional issues. don't get me wrong, i have depression and am on meds for it. so i know how emotions can get. but my husband can fly off the handle over the littlest things and once it starts it is not over for a long time, even if i walk away he still rants and raves. i love him so much, he is my soul mate but this is driving me nuts. any suggestions out there? i REALLY need some advice.

I was diagnosed with Hep C in Noveber 2014, I finally started taking my medicines on 02/2015. The side effects are hideous, I have dehydration, low potassium, serious fatigue, loss of memory, nausea, bowel problems, loss of appetite, metallic taste that at times I have small nose bleeds and the most irritating is my body hurts so bad it hurts for clothes or anything to touch my body. I just want to cry due to my body is hurting.
