Re: [GIWorld-Hepatitis] Teaching About Hepatitis
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.

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.

- 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.
