Hi Linda and I am sorry that you are going through this but in the end you will prevail. I had to do a 6 month treatment of interferon & ribavirion, weekly shots and twice daily pills. Hep C which has cleared my system at least the live virus has, some docs call it remission. Anyways.............
I remember the handfuls of hair, most folks that treated for that washed their hair much less often. Many of us also got wigs but I didn't. I cut mine short into an inverted bob. My whites dropped but not as low as my reds, I can't imagine riding a horse feeling like that.
Just letting you know that I am with you and you are in my thoughts.
