    I just got the results of my 6 month post-treatment blood test. And essentially I'm cured with NO trace of the virus in my blood, and the odds are 97% of the virus NOT showing up again :rock 

    In other words, no more Hepatitis C

    Now I can actually feel like a regular person again. Granted I'm not much of a alcohol drinker to begin with. Hell with my weight training alochol would hamper my muscle and strength gains. But at least NOW if I kindly refuse a Guiness or whatever, it's because I don't want to NOT because I can't

    I know that might sound weird, but that's because you're not in the situation. There's a big difference between NOT doing something because you don't want to & not doing something because physically you CAN'T

    Now this doesn't mean that, I'm gonna head out to Coyote's and get blitzed. But controlled drinking in moderation shouldn't be a problem (Still got to watch my liver as there has been SOME *but not serious* damage). So I can't forget that

    So next year, if for example I'm at BotCon '07 (And I might make a bigger effort to go just as a personal celebration for myself) I can if I so CHOOSE. Enjoy a regular beer like a regular guy :D 

    Ooo it feels so good to know that the virus is gone now. You can't believe how annoying that treatment was. All those pills, blood tests and injections. Ugh it felt like a 2nd job. But I stuck with it and other then the 25lbs weight loss (went from 175 to 150lbs; I gained it all back since Spring though as I'm like 184-187lbs) I'm no worse for wear :)

    Cool man. Congrats on your recovery. I didn't know you were sick, but since you're one of the nicer guys around here, I'm glad you are not sick anymore.

    Yeah well I was lucky on that front, 1)I contracted it when I was a kid so obviously I didn't drink 2)I don't smoke 3)It's a virus and I've always had a fairly strong immune system, so because of my lifestyle I wasn't in any true danger.

    Now if I was a drinker and or a smoker, then it might be a different issue. So AFAIK I wasn't in danger of suffering from Cirrosis of the liver of anything like that

    And LOL@Optimus Scourge :lol

    Here-here!

    ...Or is that hear-hear! Eh. *shrugs*

    In any case, congrats. Perosnally, I don't think you're choice not to drink is any big deal. I'm 24 and am yet to have any more than a couple sips of alcohol. The whole thing just doesn't interest me.

    As someone else who's gone through blood tests for similar things, I can safely say, with genuine feeling: It feels good to finally get that negative test result, don't it?
