March 12 - Moving On

Starbucks coffee and maple scone. Now part of weekend life. Also now part of weekend life, about once monthly, is blogging. I’ve come to enjoy putting a blog together. However, this blog was set up to document my HCV treatment course and that is completed. Successfully completed! It seems reasonable to close this blog. Moving on is important, both from the perspective of maintaining a hepatitis C focus on this site, and for personal development. This will be the final post for the HCV Treatment Journal. I’ll leave it online, with the hope that it may be useful for others having to face similar circumstances.

I’ve made many wonderful connections with some truly amazing people through this experience. Will continue to monitor both Ron’s forum and the SLO hep C message board, and will be checking in on the personal blogs of other hep C sufferers (links on sidebar). Want to shout out a huge thank you to everyone – you’ll never know just how much you’ve helped me get through this.

Will be setting up a new “Sue, Toronto” blog, to continue blogging about things in general: yoga, walking, Toronto, photos, the randomness of the universe, Toronto, etc… because I really do like to blog!

New blog site is www.neosuetoronto.blogspot.com

Really hope to hear from some of the people who drop by this site and, of course, anyone is welcome. It’ll probably take a little while until a reasonable post gets put together, but I’ll definitely be there.

All best wishes to everyone embarking on, going through, or having completed the HCV treatment journey. Not totally fun, but a journey that may open doors and bring forward perspectives not previously considered and unexpectedly mind altering. A very positive experience after all.

Hi, Sue

Yes, it seems like life moves on. I understand your putting the Hep C blog to rest; it's been feeling for some time that it's time to do that for mine, since HCV isn't my focus these days.

I look forward to your new blog.

Well Sue I must say reading your last blog has brought tears to my eyes, not in a sad way but just so poignant and honest. The end of a journey for you, and time to thoughtfully close your blog. I have so appreciated being in touch with you, your support and strength has been amazing and inspirational for me. Thank you.

I will look forward to reading all about your life beyond hepc, and of course seeing your wonderful photos.

Hi Peter,

The moving on is inevitable and important to flow with, I think. As we've noticed, life just isn't static. Please do stop by the new blog, which I hope to have going within the next couple of weeks - really would like to hear how you're doing. Look forward to hearing from you! Take care Peter,
Sue

Hi Lu,

I really hope that the hepC journey is over for you, as well. Would like to keep in touch and will continue to stop by your blog - please do visit my new one.

Thank you for everything Lu. Feel like I've laughed and cried with you during our treatments. Wish truly wonderful things for you.

Hi Sue,
I too will be closing my blog shortly. One more appointment to go. One last posting.
I no longer feel defined by the virus as I did last year. And that means time to move on for me too.
Thanks for being such a warm and supportive part of my own journey. And I hope the future brings you everything you wish for.

Thank you for all of your kindness and support through our shared journeys. May all of your wishes come true too!

Hi Sue, I am so glad to have just found your blog. I have been crying the whole time reading it. My husband is going through treatment right now and I feel isolated regarding the ongoing challenges we face together resulting from the treatment. Again thank you for sharing.

Hi Jennifer,

Am so glad you found my blog and hope that the links on the side bar will provide you with connections and information that might be valuable. You are definitely not alone.

It's a challenging process, being faced with a chronic disease, the treatment for which can be debilitating itself. You and your husband are in my thoughts.
