I read your message board frequently. Some days
I smile when I read a positive message and cry to others.
I sit many times and say prayers for all that find your
site -a simple prayer of thanks for letting these people
find you and having you here to find. I thank you
from the bottom of my liver! :-)(heart).
I have written to you a few times since last summer when
I found out I had Hep C. I have bought TLM and a
few other supplements from you. I have also bought
supplements (ones that you recommend) in a vitamin
shop here in NJ.
I go again to Memorial Sloan-Kettering this Thursday
(Jan. 30th) for blood work and another Hep b
shot. I did have a liver biopsy done a month ago
and my liver is great. I sent to your office a couple
of months ago my blood results from the last time. I
did find out I am type 1B and my viral load is 295,000
which is low. I know getting the hep shots my viral
load will increase but I feel I did the right thing by
getting the shots.
I know MSKCC will want to start me on the interferon
but I am saying NO. Last time I saw the doctor he gave
me the script for the medicine and a "cute"
little blue vinyl lunch box from the drug co. - in it
was info about the medicine and a syringe container.
I put the lunch box in the closet and never want to see
it again. I will use the syringe container since
I had stomach cancer years ago and have to take a B-12
shot once monthly to myself.
I guess I am writing tonight because I feel much stress
since I am due to go to Sloan and face the doctor and
say NO to the therapy. Lloyd, it is not easy to
face doctors and stand up to them. They sound so
sure of themselves and as a patient I feel little. Wow.....Lloyd,
as I just typed this last sentence I realize how to solve
this feeling. Off and on in the next day and as
I go to NYC I will do mini meditations and visualizations....
which is... I will visualize me speaking with the doctor
- I will be bigger in size as I speak and he will be little.
I will speak and speak well and confident in my
visualization. This will work. Hmm...there
is a reason for everything... there are no accidents.
Even writing this to you proves there was a reason
and that is to solve my own feelings of stress with facing
the doctor and being tough and saying NO
I apologize to you Lloyd for having to read this long
email and I again thank you for being here for all of
I can't do this therapy. I just cannot. I
have a handicapped son. What if I do this therapy
and one of the side effects lead to something else and
I can't take care of my son? I can't do this therapy
and will not.
Taking the supplements and TLM I seem to have lost the
"fog" in my head
and I feel better than before. Someday when I get
rid of this Hep C I will donate a box of TLM to another
person that cannot afford it. I promise. I
really have a tough time buying it now too but I figure
someday I will return the goodness to someone else by
at least donating a box of TLM.
It's going to happen.
P.S. When I call in my order your "Angels"
that take my order are wonderful -tell them thank you
Good Day Lloyd,
You may post my email. I must tell you about my
visit with the doctor.
I did feel confident and in control and that is because
I had the knowledge regarding the interferon.
When I said no to the therapy they accepted my answer
with no problem and even made a statement - I don't blame
you since your viral load is low and there is only a 40%-45%
chance it would help. They were compassionate and
caring. I made myself stress out for nothing.
I will be returning there for a six month check up and
will then get blood work.
They also suggested a Chinese herb study which they
presently have underway. The doctor in charge will
be in touch with me since I did say I would like to know
more. Knowledge about everything involved with Hep
C is good.
I will stay on your program- I know that's best.
I have listened to many Chinese doctors and they all
say that they are ineffective with dealing with the viral
load but do well with the AST and ALT. This is mainly
because most of them are vegetarians and will not use
