How I got Hepatitis C

I get hepatitis c when I was a baby, blood transfer. Found out when I was a sophomore in high school, wanted to give blood. Got a letter in the mail from Red Cross saying that I have Hepatitis C! I was worried and scared. In 2009 I did the first treatment the interferon, that was not a fun experience. I couldn’t work I felt like crap, depressed, and I was not nice to my wife. Which we have been married for 13 years, and I love her to death:) So come to find out the treatment did not work it made it worse, so I stopped it. Was not happy, it is now 2018 I have a doctor and he is sending me to a specialist to start one of the new treatments soon. I’m very scared and I don’t know what to expect!

    Hi Joshua. Expect treatment to be “a walk in the park” compared to interferon and ribavirin. You will be surprised about how easy it is compared to the older treatments. We can do anything for 12 weeks, can’t we?
