Morning of Day Two Therapy

I went to bed last night at a decent hour, and woke up with a full 8 hours of rest. I ended up eating some healthy food last night for dinner at my favorite place in the entire world, Chipotle Mexican Grill. I could more than likely eat there every day of my life if I could afford it. But getting back on topic. Having taken two full doses of Ribavirin from last night and this morning, to be honest, I don't feel anything different in my body. No headache, nausea, cramping... Just my typical every morning sniffs and sneezes from my allergies, which is totally non-related to therapy. I read that with a meal, particularly a fatty meal, the absorption rate of Ribavirin from non-meal to meal ranges 45-75% in the body. So I made myself some buttered toast this morning, and ate some yogurt (not all of it), and had some sweet tea to top if all off with. It's a little hard to eat a large meal of the morning for me, it always has been. It generally takes my brain, stomach and digestive tract about an hour or two upon waking up to really want food, so forcing myself to eat toast this morning was kinda Blah. I'm not, and have never been, a morning breakfast kind of guy. I love breakfast with bacon, eggs, sausage, grits, but it's hard to eat all that right when I wake up. Things have to settle, I have to wake up, get active, get going you know? On a normal day, my first meal of is generally lunch around Noon.

I'll try to post a follow up blog tonight after two full days of being on Sovaldi + Ribavirin. So far, it's like I'm not even taking anything. Time will tell though. God has got this whole process in His mighty hands, and in Him I draw strength and courage. We serve a mighty, conquering King. I love my boss.
