"My dear Lady, since my first cry for knowledge in this place, it was people like you, me, so many others, seeking for knowledge, guidance, and most of all if possible, the sharing of truth. In posting this reply, I can assure you, it will probably be my last. I will be told to go away, and get educated. I ask for those responsible, that I be forgiven in advance, they are in pain, and I share there pain, in ways I could never describe. Yet, I will have my say.
The facts I have read on this site, are not consistent with current findings reguarding ongoing research of the chronological course of HPC.
I am told that Virol Load, Geneotype, elevated liver enzyme results, are all moot, they do not appear to have an influence, in the course of HCV.
Yes, I will probably die of liver failure. I have no symptoms. I shared bloddy needles at the age of 17. I was sick for two weeks. Brown urine, yellow eyes, flu-like symptoms. Then it just disapeared. I have raised 4 children to adulthood, ranging from age 32, to age 26. Since the age of 14, I have poisened my liver, with alchohol, hallucionogenic drugs, poison mushrooms, 4 years of shooting speed and acid, stopped at age 19, clean for few years, but continued sporadic binge drinking, mushrooms, pot. I live a clean, and sober life now at 53. I am tired of information. Tired of input. Everything is input. I will live until I die.
