“This is not so bad”, were my last words before the side effects of Interferon kicked in on Monday.
Then yesterday, I thought “it should be about the same” proved contrary to what was about to come last night. For the first time in our marriage, I cried in pain in front of my wife. It even hurt when I laid down. With a rising fever and trembling body, my wife could only hold me and pray for these side effects to leave me. They would last nearly nine hours before they would allow me to fall asleep.
