Tink's journey with Hepatitis C

Monday, August 01, 2005

It's my party & I'll cry if I want to

Today is my 18th injection. Mondays seem to fly around although my weeks are full of nothing – I simply don’t know what on earth I do every day – not a lot!

Professor has gone on holiday and before he went he phoned to ask if all was ok. I told him I had been feeling a bit ‘down’ recently – not exactly depressed but heading that way. He encouraged the anti-depressant route but I am trying very hard to try alternative methods for the time being. I am taking my Wheat/barley grass tablets (which Prof said was ok) and they seem to be helping a bit. Trouble is I need to take 8 every day and sometimes I can’t stomach it – they taste dreadful and I’m not the best person in the world for taking pills. It takes me an age to get them down so truthfully speaking I am probably not taking the full dose on a regular basis. Must try harder!

Trying to analyse the ‘feeling low’, I suppose that on tx small cracks become huge craters so anything at all wrong with your life becomes a major fault. I have so many little fault lines in my world that earthquakes and tsunamis are happening regularly – or at least it seems that way. Tx too, seems to isolate you. I can’t explain it very well but I don’t have the energy or will to do the things in life that I was doing prior to tx. I havn’t exactly locked myself away or anything like that but I am reluctant, for instance, to go to play bridge these days. I do try and have a fairly ‘normal’ life like going out to parties or to dinner but I don’t have a lot to say to people – I am totally bored with talking about myself and my illness but there’s not a lot else going on for me to chat about…..

On a more positive note, it’s my birthday this week. I know at my age I should not be celebrating but what the hell. We have friends coming to stay and I’m having a birthday dinner for a few close friends. A new Italian friend (who happens to be a chef and who also had a liver transplant only last year) has offered to come and cook dinner for us so I get to enjoy it. The sun is shining, the sky is blue – what more could I ask for?

  • Hi Tink,

    Have a great birthday, you can celebrate at any age. Enjoy your friend's cooking, I'm sure it will be a wonderful meal.
    You will get your life back and it will be without having to worry about the virus, it seems a long way off but it will happen, try and stay positive.
    As to the treatment isolating you, tell me about it, I know exactly where you are coming from on that one! it's just the same in our house.

  • Happy birthday, Tink - I'm sure the boredom will gradually lift - sometimes leading a normal life isn't as great as it's made out!

    ===============
    "BREAKING NEWS"
    ===============

    -Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
    the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
    REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

    These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth
    before they can be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for
    lumber is 30-50 years.

    Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number
    of other benefits. Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and
    the lack of oils and sap found in the wood make it resistant to forest fire,
    ensuring higher returns on investments.
    T
    he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
    as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
    the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
    time to replant and develop new root systems.

    Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140
    Million with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With
    anticipated growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during
    its initial 9-year cycle.

    Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153
    Million in revenues. As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree
    continues to grow around the world EGTY believes additional multi-million
    dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
    about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of
    250,000 infant plants per month.

    Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business
    owners in New Zealand, Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular
    and profitable fast growing infant tree plants. Inquiries from the governments of
    Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

    Conclusion:

    The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
    known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
    This s-t0ck will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
    Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
