A Short Happy Life or a Long Miserable One

Hi Lloyd,
I no longer feel alone or crazy when I claim that interferon absolutely ruined my life.  I have been on several antidepressant combinations to no avail.  I took peg interferon with Ribovirin April 2002-2003.  I have  never been the same.  I have told family, friends, doctors, psychiatrists, counselors ect...that I have lost my personality, ability to think and even my spirit to this medicine. 

No one seems to believe me and they think it is all in my head.  I am often embarrassed at work when I can't think properly and I have no gusto in life to relate to others.  Instead I am consumed by anxiety alternated with a dead feeling inside.  My thyroid pooped out during therapy, I turn silver jewelry black ever since and have to use Rogaine for hairless  I thought this medicine would prevent death but sometimes I think death itself would have been kinder.  I would have rather lived a short happy life rather than a long miserable one.
