        Hello
        I hope this is okay to ask. I just started moderating a message board for
        PlanetRx.com on Hepatitis. Even though I am HCV positive, and a nurse, I'm
        finding that I don't know near as much as some of you do. I have learned so
        much in just a few days here! The community is new, and needs some help
        getting off the ground. I gain nothing financially by asking this. I was
        wondering if any of you would be interested in checking out this board for
        me, and maybe adding your comments. Again, I hope this isn't out of line. If
        you would like to visit, please go to PlanetRx.com, and click on community,
        then message boards....it will lead you to the hepatitis board.
        Thanks,
        Kerry

          Duh!!!! Ok, I have properly thumped myself on the head!! I think this
          is pretty much what I have been saying about doctors myself, especially the
          non-specialists. Her doctor does have one good point in his favor though.
          At least he is listening to her. That says A LOT!
          Good luck with your niece. She sounds pretty sharp to me.
          Take care!
          Claudine

              That's so true about the fatigue and sleep. I never considered myself a
              "depressed" person. I'm always (or was always) on the go, overdoing over
              acheiving, over the top :) go getter till hep put it's brick wall in my way.
              But when I started on an antidepressant last July and started getting some
              really good sleep again, I realized that I hadn't slept that well in 11
              years (about the time I'd discovered the hep). Psychosomatic or physical or
              whatever, it works and it helps. So yall don't be afraid to try something
              out to solve a hep problem, you never know what might work for you.
