I suspect everyone with this disease has been depressed...with good reason.  Keeping busy helps.  Seeing others reach SVR brings a  biggrin   Hoping all on tx make it.

I exercise like mad to manage mine and it works as long as I am keeping it up. Olysio has made it difficult to get enough exercise and I truly feel it...

Thanks so much for posting this Jill.  I was amazed to see the statistic that 25% of HCV folks suffer from depression.  I have struggled with it most of my life and now I see that part of it could be from my illness.  Great information!

Thanks Jill, this type of information never gets "old", so I thought I'd 'bump' it up for those currently in need.
