Fiona asked Louie if he felt that I was to blame for giving him hep C and his answer is very well thought out and eloquent.
There are lots of interesting bits which won’t make the film but will be good to post here.
My new blog is about getting my film off the ground. So far we have filmed the whole of my treatment plus key interviews
To everyone living with hepatitis C, I want to say that this treatment is miraculous.
I went to clinic today to do my 12 week blood tests which will determine if I’m cured. I was so nervous I wanted to puke.
Apparently guidelines have changed; 12 weeks post treatment is when you get the all-clear now.
According to Charles Gore (this is not science) if you are still clear at 4 weeks post the new treatments you should carry on being clear.
It’s been 2 weeks and 3 days since I stopped taking the drugs. I did see immediate results.
Today is my last day of treatment. Just for a treat I’ve got a washing machine stomach and headache. I think it’s a hangover from the run up t...

When I tell people how much weight I’ve put on, they nod silently. I should stop fishing for someone to say I haven’t.
I thought if you were on anti virals you couldn’t get a virus but that was a silly of me. I was told today that each virus has its own signatu...
My most recent results are through and the virus is undetectable. I stuck the news up on FB yesterday and got an overwhelming response.
Turbulent is the best way to describe the last few days. I think it’s a combination of Ribavirin messing with my head and the last month or so...
Yesterday marked one month on the proper treatment.
Sadie Frost answered with a very long list of impressive work she’s done with us and told him that her father had died of hep C. He looked emb...
I’m shattered, my body aches and rings with fatigue, my head hurts and my stomach is like a washing machine.
Yesterday morning I got up, after little sleep and the hangover wasn’t there. I moved my arms and legs about and thought blimey this is new!
