Catching Up Big Time

Hello everyone in blog world, I have neglected my blog really badly for the last few months. My last post was injection number 5, well I am now on injection number 23 of 24 and I do number 24 on monday night. I have had a rough time during TX but a lot better than some people I have spoke 2.
I am having a little blog re-design at the minute so it might look a bit strange untill I get it how I want.
Speek soon

Injection 5 and eyes

Hi all, Injection 5 went fine last night no problems at all apart from the usual feeling down, I have been looking forward to going to London for the public enquiry but again I am worried about my eyes, I woke this morning and could hardly open them (I am putting a picture above), after a while they settled down a bit they have been agony all day and I dont really trust them to drive to London tomorrow. Has anyone heard of this or seen this before. I look forward to your responces. Steve. PS these are NOT what my eyes normaly look like!

Injection Number 4

I had my forth Interferon jab last night, I didnt go to well it was quite painfull and bled a little, but its gone and out of the way I slept well and worked all day today. I have kept the empty box as a sort of landmark, one down 5 to go. I get my next meds monday morning.

As some of you may be aware I am in my third week of treatment, when I got my pre treatment blood results it showed that I was genotype 2b when I have always been told that I was Genotype 1a. I was last tested in 2001 and that showed that I was Genotype 1a but my nurse told me that back then the tests were unreliable, anyway she done another genotype test last week and she phoned me with the results today, I AM GENOTYPE 2B, when she told me I nearly bloody cried I am so happy, I cant really explain how I feel all you heppers will have a good idea though. My treatment has been cut to 24 weeks . I had a tub of 48 marbles and one tub with 3 marbles in, I put one in the other after each jab someone else done this a while ago just to help her get through it, anyway I took 24 marbles out today god that felt good. I am so happy I just want to tell everybody. Just one thing, how many people are doing 48 weeks when they don't need to? Makes you wonder don't it? God bless the NHS. I put off treatment for 5 years because I didn't think I could do 48 weeks. I could have been clear by now! Why cant they get it right? Why wasn't I tested for 6 years if they knew the blood tests were not reliable? Just a few questions for my consultant when I next see him. I am so happy and I wish everyone was as fortunate as me, I wish us all rid of this virus. Steve

# Injection 2

I took my second Interferon jab last night, I dont know why but soon after the Jab I feel really down and p"£$£d off, I feel like I just want to be alone is this normal? I felt ok today just a bit washed out if thats the right word. Just a short post tonight I feel quite tired.
