Iris, Its about time You jump a train and get on with your journey. You have been hanging around the depo now since 2011 guiding all of us as we went about our travels. Bless you for all your kind words of encouragement, its time you scratch your name in the wall at the depo as we all have, and take a well deserved seat on the Harvoni treatment train and leave it all behind you. Your beautiful and kind and so deserving of this ride. Love RC

thank you iris for bringing the chapstick up, i tossed every thing out that had contact with my skin. i had some extra eyeshadow, powedr and blush brushes so i tossed out the old and dug out the the stored ones. that was easy enough to do.

then ordered some new blush, powder and lipbalms. i had a cpl unopened ones of those as well, but decided to stock up today anyway. i'm a person who likes to stock up but too lazy to change up.†blankstareconfuse

but i appreciate that you thot of it at all. 5

Well, the virus couldn't possibly live on lipstick could it? I think I'm just being paranoid about the chap stick. My goodness that would freak me out, I used other peoples chapstick, my moms chapstick etc. I still have a hard time believing the little dragon isn't spread by mosquito bite, if one could get it from a toothbrush from which I have just spread burning tooth paste? Whaaa? and the little bugger carries malaria just doesn't make sense, I thought the virus was relatively fragile and couldn't survive well in water or air. Guess it can live in india ink because that must have been the way I got it.† † † † † † † † † † † †

†I just had a horrible thought last mothers day, I cut myself dozens of times on rose thorns, and all the other times I was cut, stabbed and poked,† I have bled many many times in my 31 years in the floral industry. Can't really avoid it, it comes with the job. I would do my best to wrap it up after,† but band aids don't stay on in the water. What if I have spread it that way? Oh dang, oh stomach ache, I sure hope not.

†so, I'll see you guys when I jump on the train tomorrow.

Bb, Iris

i just told my mr. that if he ever wanted peace again he should let me sleep; and he took harvoni too.

i didn't think about my makeup........omg.

Hey Iris,

Mr. Jerk? Ha, ha! Be glad youíre not taking Ribavirin. Heís lucky youíre not taking Riba, lol! That may have turned out very unpleasant for him! I hope he comes around and sees the light (or it could get very dark.)†wink

We always changed our razors and toothbrushes after we started treatment. Iím not sure it makes a whole lot of difference, but everything that might have some blood on it probably doesnít hurt to replace when you start. The most important thing, as always, is to never let someone else use them. Itís not something most people do anyway, but itĎs Important to avoid and let those that might consider it, know itís forbidden. Metal scissors and clippers can be soaked in a 1:10 household bleach solution for an hour to clean them up anytime you feel the need. Not a good idea to share them either. Thatís nothing new and advice we have recommended for years. Chapstick? Change it and donít share it either. You wonít cause any chance of relapse or treatment failure with your own stuff. Common sense safety, protects others.†

Good luck and let the slaying begin! Be sure and start a new thread in the On Treament section tomorrow. WeĎll be here to support and cheer you on†smile

Hahahaha!, I'm liking that imagery ...magic beans, yes! These will be my magic beans.smile

I'm having some anxiety today, I had wanted to sleep in, but mr. Jerk man did his normal jerk thing and woke me up with his early am noise making antics,† I was thinking this would† be my last day of waking up exhausted† (well technically tomorrow) but I'll probably wake up tomorrow with anxious energy about downing that first tab.† I'm also very anxious about not having a real good support system in the house, mr Jerk will likely be of no empathy or help in any way. My daughter isn't far away and said she will be my support and then I have you guys, thank Goddess for that!

I had a question I forgot to ask the dr. but do y'all suppose I should get a new toothbrush and shaver? I had also some concern about a chapstick sort of lip balm. Sometimes one has cracked and bloody lips, do you think re-infection can happen through a chapstick?

Anyway my meds have been all charged up on the full moon the slaying is about to begin. I'll spend some time polishing up my Claymore.

congratulations iris.... isn't it the most fun delivery! there will most likely be 2 more deliveries-you will call the pharmacy a cpl weeks before you need it so it is there at least a week early.

you can call the pharm and ask them when to make the call for the refill

Hello Iris!

FINALLY!!


Iím so happy for you, what a wonderful piece of awesomeness! I just know youíre going to do well. All good things come to those that wait, they say. If thatís true, you already know how this will turn out. As a matter of fact, Iím sure of it!

Harvoni is actually a drug made up of two components, Sovaldi (Sofosbuvir) 400mg and Ledipasvir (90mg). Sovaldi is the NS5B magic and Ledipasvir is the NS5A. Together they break the replication cycle in two locations, which is why itís so effective. Iíll add a link to the Monograph below. That way you can read up on it and thoroughly confuse yourself, lol! Not really, itís very cut and dry. You take it at the same time everyday and drink a gallon of water faithfully each day as well. If you do that, your Dragon will end up on the Ye Olí BBQ Spit!

Congratulations Warrior, let the slaying begin!

Harvoni Monograph

I was going to say waiting for my meds but before I could get on, the Fed Ex guy was here knocking on the door.biggrin

So it's here ! it's here!! Its really here!!! Well, wait... let me open the box. Wish I know how to post a pic, I want to share this journey has been soo freaking long coming.†

Yep it's in there.!!!! Woo Hooooooooo!!!!! It says Harvoni 90mg/400mg What's the 90 about? looks to me all 12 weeks are in this bottle and it did not come with a refrigerator pac like they said. I was under the impression there would be 3 deliveries, with well 28 doses if were talking 12 weeks, right? It says store at room temp.

Oh My gosh... I'm supposed to call the Dr .right now to line up blood work. Bye for now!

BB, Iriss
