My headache has gone.

I went to see David Stewart at The Club Drug Clinic. He told me that 8 years ago, him and his colleagues sat back and waited for crystal meth to explode on to the generic club scene and they are still waiting. In places like Australia coke is about $400 a gram and Ecstasy is much more expensive. Meth labs have to be in deserted or excluded places as explosions are an occupational hazard.

England is practically one big conurbation so explosions wouldn’t go unnoticed, especially in the south east. We have lots of cheap and more manageable alternatives to meth, which is why it hasn’t happened here on the same scale as other countries.

Legal and synthetic highs though are a newer problem and no one knows where that is going to go yet.

I’m sleeping better. I haven’t lost my appetite like most people on treatment. I want to eat more. The pic is what I’ve been eating today.

I am about 30 weeks into the 48 week triple therapy course. I finish treatment on 8th July and then have a PCR test 12 weeks later to see if any virus is detectable with a final one another 12 weeks later..
Triple therapy is a long long road, I wont have a final conclusion about my treatment until January 2014!!
Keep up the good work with the blogs

Thanks for your comment John. I'm really enjoying the comments. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for your SVR. When are you going to find out?
