If you haven't done so already, now is the time to start looking for people who will support you while you go through therapy with peginterferon and ribavirin.
Think about how the support of others has helped you in the past. You know how valuable extra support feels, and scientific research has proven that it helps. Studies show that people who have support from friends or family do better at taking their medicines on time, and have better results. Consider what you need and want from your family and friends, and then ask for it. Let people help you. You may find that this extra support is the just the thing you need to stay on track with your treatment program.
