Hi Lloyd,

I have a sister and friend who are doing chemo and I can only imagine it is similar to interferon in ways, but have not heard that it has the neuro psychiatric side effects of interferon. That stuff made a wreck out of me. Talk about being tortured! Well, you know...I'm preachin' to the choir here.

The support at Schering Plough wasn't great either. They were mostly concerned whether or not I was having intercourse due to the effects of Ribavirin. It was always the first question they asked me. At one point, I got a nurse who tried to minimize the side effects I was experiencing, saying such things as "That doesn't happen to other patients". I was so pissed! Needless to say, I stopped calling them or returning their monthly calls.

Well, I'm due for more blood work at the end of June. I'm excited to see the results so far.

Will keep you posted.

Have a great day.
