Fear not, Warrior! I want you to gain strength and confidence from your decisions. Look at what you have accomplished! I want to assure you, there is nothing about this that you should fear. Take this important decision and fly high with it. You are doing a great thing right now. You are obviously a bright, intelligent woman, that is excelling in a highly competitive IT world and this decision, along with your sobriety and willingness to participate in the health of others (AA and here) shows me your Warrior spirit is strong! Let it loose and revel in its strength. I know the difficulty in doing that.

Depression can be so mentally confining. The Who song Behind Blue Eyes brings me a lot of memories of my days when dealing with those pains and doubts. Its like nobody understands, but I do and its no fun feeling like youre always talking to people through a sheer curtain. They hear you, but cant really see where youre coming from. I know that each step forward, lessens the sheerness of that curtain. Youre doing that, have confidence that your proactive approach is working. We all need a shoulder to lean on occasionally and I want you to consider us your collective shoulder. You can do this!

Now prepare for greatness! Don your armor and get ready to slay your Dragon...

hi hoodie, so glad you got your page going; it just helps to have a go-to thread for your journey.

yep, to look at most of us no once could see any illness, and for me, talking about it helped me shed some feelings of shame etc.

no matter how we got the hepC it can't live in our body anymore thanks to the DAA's.

happy trails hoodie, i like your new avatar  5

Im starting my own personal thread to keep track of my journey as was suggested by Tig and others. 

Thank you all so much for being here as I embark on this scary and exciting new phase in my life. 

Im a little depressed and anxious. Spent this weekend sleeping a lot and being alone, except for my A.A. meetings Fri Sat and Sun. My friends and family all know whats going on with me and theyre being super supportive. I will probably share at group level in A.A. about it too. Youve heard of My Year of Living Dangerously? well Im calling this My Year of Living Honestly. Im just telling the truth to everyone. Ill keep it a little vague with my employer but everyone else gets to hear my whole truth. In a really positive restorative way.
