Louie and I have just been walking in Battersea Park taking it all in. We’ve been to hell and back and didn’t realize at the time. To both be ill, tired, in pain and depressed for years on end was the norm for us. Life in our house has been claustrophobic with little room for tolerance or empathy.

2013 has seen Louie get the all-clear back in March and it was my turn today. Kosh, our consultant said today that he’s realized hep C is about so much more than just being a liver disease. It has effected and dominated every area of lives.

To everyone living with hepatitis C, I want to say that this treatment is miraculous. Both Louie and I started to feel better while we were on it, unlike being on interferon or talaprivir. We have the same energy as anyone now probably we are fitter. Louie sat the maths entrance exam for Oxford University this week (whether he gets in or not is something else) & I’m marveling at my newfound energy and reveling in the knowledge I’m healthy. We are happy, grateful and feel so lucky to have got a chance to do these drugs.

This will be my last blog but please watch out for Kickstarter activity for my documentary in the New Year.

The pic is Battersea Park this morning all shiny, shimmery and full of possibility like my life now....
