Congratulations, "I," on starting the treatment! Is this the one where you are on it for 6 months? How many shots a week do you take? I'm not sure if anyone here is currently on treatment.
The treatment is rough. Some people are unable to continue working. If that becomes necessary for you, consider applying for SSI, which is short-term disability. You would get some income, plus Medicaid.
I know it isn't pleasant, but it is vitally important that you complete the treatment. If not, you have a good chance of developing liver cancer and/or cirrhosis.
Keep us posted on how you are doing! I'm interested on a personal level, too, as if my tumor becomes operable, I would have hep C treatment following surgery.
Best of luck to you!
