Hello from a Colin Firth Fan in Las Vegas!

Hello from a Colin Firth Fan in Las Vegas!

Hello, I'm another newbie here and very thankful to find this site. Although I have not had the official diagnosis from the dr., as a retired medical professional I know from the symptoms my goose is definitely in the oven... everything except ascites. Lifelong panic/anxiety disorder and meds not happening at present has me widely swinging from positive affirmations to lengthy panic attacks from hell.

Welcome! I'm in Colorado. I too have just been diagnosed. Started the Ursidol on Monday. Haven't seen the heptoligist yet but since the biopsy they are thinking PBC/AIH crossover (autoimmune hepatitis) I don't think your goose is cooked yet. It seems like there's a lot of hope. You could easily continue on quite a few more years. This is a really good website. I haven't found one in the U.S that I like as well. Good luck and keep us posted on your health.

Like the poem (had to read it a couple of times)

Colin Firth films aren't an accurate view of the UK.

Anyway, cirrhosis, it's not good but then I had it for at least 15 years, that's when I was diagnosed (suspect I've always had it). But I survived for years with it. Since had a transplant at 42.

Maybe your anxiety is having a part to play in the "goose is cooked" thing. If you don't have ascites, what are your symptoms?
