Hi PG,
I'm sorry I ahven't written. I don't have a good excuse other then to say I'm sorry. You may think this is a cop out and I guess it is. But I'm tired. So tired of fighting the system. I can't get insurance. Social Security is so overwhelming. I guess what I am trying to say is thank you so much for everything, but I have decided that I'm done trying. I am going to live like I'm healthy and pray that God will do what only He knows is best. I just can't keep getting rejected. That doesn't mean that I am trying to do anything stupid, (OK technically I know that what I am doing is stupid OK?) I'm just going to take a break from Hep C. (If only we could huh!) I am just tired of it consuming everything. Who knows I might change my mind but for now thats how it is. I work because I can't not work. If I work too much I get sick then my boss tells me how I'm letting everyone down. And yes she knows my condition, I can't get my meds refilled because the drs. want to see me but no know. I'm sure you have heard it all. If you still have my email please let me know how you are. I'm not gone grom here just......taking a break.
You are all in my thoughts and prayers always. Please keep up the awesome job you and connie and everyone does. You are truely a blessing. You do something that is so vitally important too so many people. Don't let me bring you down, I'm OK.
Love and Prayers,
Mary K.

Mary Kay, I'm not PG, but I do have hep C.  I know what you mean about taking a break from it all.  And you are free to do that.  However, if you are trying to get SS and have been turned down, please do get a lawyer to fight for you.  It will not cost you one cent until you are approved, and then it's 25% of your back payment.  It was worth it to me...and even with a lawyer it took 2 years.  I could only work P/T the last 10 years I worked, but I found that I could make do with less money to save my health and my sanity.

Big hugs,

Hi Mary, sorry I haven't been on line the last couple of work is crazy right now.

You have no reason to be sorry for your post. Everyone gets tired and down. That's what we are here for .........each other laugh, cry, yell,hug.........what ever anyone needs.
I understand you are getting tired of Hep C ruling your life........take your's not only caregivers who need to recharge their batteries............patients do too.

I am going to email you....take care.........

Thoughts and prayers...........
