Recently diagnosed

I was recently diagnosed with hep c. I am scared to death. I am not a drug user. But I got a tattoo in the 80’s that I probably shouldn’t have gotten. I have appointment with specialist in October. The wait is killing me. It’s all I think about. I have great insurance but reading some of the stories here scares me. What if they deny treatment. My primary Dr says don’t worry. I’m eating healthy but I am so tired all the time. She says my kidneys are great. My liver numbers are 74. She says she has seen higher but I’m still scared!
