that is tragic i agree with you ,if the person has a shot at a new life im sure they would change their ways. however we all know true addicts will do or say anything and almost never reform of course some do but most dont.Im not lumping pot smokers in that group mind youI also want to wish you both the best of luck i hope it works out

I agree with both of you, but isn't the bottom line, there just aren't that many livers to go around.
I guess they have to be super picky who they give them to. I hope this changes soon. I'm waiting
to hear they've learned how to grow organs from stem cells. That research has so much potential.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

Hey Thanks Phil,

I was diagnosed 3-4 years ago with Hep C. I have or had near normal liver function and no sign of cancer. In the lottery of Hep C I got the easier genome type to treat, Type 2. I am looking to start interfuron early next year. The part that has been the hardest for me is the drinking. Even now i drink a couple times a month and it really meses me up for days when I do, I need to quit, sucks because love I me a good mirco brew and pinot noir, but it's not worth dying over. I have a a son and I don't want to kick it early like my folks did. Work is stessfull as hell, but in this economy "keep(ing) your day job" is good. I need to work on my health, stress reduction and diet. All I know is I love my girlfriend and son and I want to be around.

Peace and Love
Nick

I hope you can do what you have in mind, to live longer with your sweet family. Drinking is something that people have to make decisions about. If you feel you can choose, choose. If you think you can use some help, AA or other support groups may be the best path.

Your picture is with such a beautiful, sweet looking baby! Be good to yourself and your family, and have fun, too. Treatment can be tough, but having genome 2, you're at least going to do a shorter treatment and have great odds of getting rid of the virus. Remember, water is your friend. It sounds like you have good info about Hep C, and that's a great place to start making choices from.

Good luck.
FUCK CANCER!

Peace & Love

I just read your post...thank you for sharing this. I was diagnosed in 2006 - I was admitted into the hospital for two weeks, and almost died - and life is certainly more difficult now, as I have never been very good when it comes to proper diet and such...but I am trying to get improve each day...as I encourage others to do the same...
Thanks again.
