“Took quite a while but got my medicine and am taking my first pills in 20 minutes. 84 days from today hopefully I will be cured!
re: hep c treatment…sovaldi and olysio (off label treatment)
I am taking these 2 pills only once every 24 hours early in the morning as these meds can have some sides, Doing it this way I’ll be asleep and hopefully it will be easier to cope. I will miss a good part of the day so avoiding the sun won’t be so hard. I’ve been on a weird sleep pattern for years so it will be right up my alley.
I will likely be super tired at least this first month so am allowing for 10 hours of sleep and will get up around 12:00 pm accounting for the upcoming daylight savings. Thanks for your prayers and love. I am so excited to finally get rid of this scary and damaging disease after all these years. “
p.s. going to play this right when I take the pill ! It is a celebration for me. Am looking forward to my new life.
