13. Right after the shot and some hours after it was awful.
Edited on Sat Feb-10-07 01:44 PM by neweurope
So of course we took them at night, after dinner. The SO mostly could sleep, I went without often because, yes, it can be (mustn't be) like a severe flu. We took something like Tylenol, too, but not on a regular basis. I felt some dizziness, but both of us were able to drive all the time.

We also drunk Abrotanum tea (careful with this, take after presciption) and took milk thistle (Silybum marianum) pills, both of which are good for the liver (our livers didn't look all that good). If I had to go through it again I'd also do essential oils-therapy, with all the "good mood" oils like orange and grapefruit and rose, all anti depressants.
Sometimes a massage would have been heaven, but sometimes I couldn't stand to be touched.

Tell him his chances are much much bigger now and waiting for a greater virus load would be plain dumb. And maybe he will get dizzy some days and not be able to drive, so what? That doesn't mean he won't be able to drive the whole time, and if he broke his foot he couldn't drive, either. But as I said it musn't happen at all, we were able to drive the whole time. The doctors do have to prepare patients for what might happen because if you ran into those severe side effects unprepared it would be really bad, but that does not mean that all of it will happen to everybody. Like my SO didn't nearly have the problems I went through.

And once he starts his treatment make sure and tell him he's brave... every time. Men need that ;)
on edit;: the calendar is an excellent idea, I counted the shots, too :)
