you so much....please bill me for the books if needed.....
i am pretty new at this, and was only discovered with this
in sept, and i had said to my dr, I feel terrible for years
now please check me for hep to rule it out.you all have checked
me out for practically everything else..and have all but told
me i am a nut case and a hypercondriac. (sp, you know one
who makes things up with sickness for pitty) we had done an
ultrasound because we had found some liver cysts( a regular
one not a guided bx at that time yet) and the thing said my
liver was beautiful, cysts were simple no cancer........ then
he started being condescending and telling me hep means swollen
liver....I said Look doc please do it anyway, what is the
problem? and Bam I got hep c....they didnt bother telling
me for 3 weeks, then i couldnt see a gastro ( so booked) for
another month......how damn rude......
i wasnt so angry i would be emotionally hurt . I have read
and read. on the web, and the DR seems to have no time to
explain things to me.....I joined a forum with other Hep patience
and have learned a lot and mostly that the stuff they give
you is poison.....and doesn't work.....
love my life....I am a mother of 3.....a cookie baking type
mother....now divorced. And children now grown, but still
I make em some cookies and mail them to them on birthdays
do not like the stigma that I got this from sex, or that I
am some moral reprobate in some opium den somewhere......and
caused this in myself.....
believe the medical profession did this to me (with blood
products against my will and religion) at the birth of my
son in mid 80's,,, so why should I trust them to help me,
and being on Medicaid and disabled for other things,,,,,,,,i
get my choice of nothen Drs., and not a lot of respect....I
dont know how i got it, but i understand it can give us a
clue of how fast it ( hep c ) is moving in my body.....more
blood work to follow.....
i have always tried to be pro active in my health conserns,,,,but
sounds like there is no magick bullet for this, and all i
can hope for is quality of life, and perhaps the disease moving
so slowly, ( if i take care of myself) so i can die of something
else other than liver failure.. like old age or something......or
maybe the Lord will come back before I have to worry about
the case...I appreciate all you can do for me....
PS sorry to hear you have viruses.. in your puter......
I suggest reading my books. They answer most of the questions
you need to know.
I would attach a copy of them but several viruses have atacked
my computers and I do not have the capacity to do so.
your address and I will send you my books.
Please read them and do not use interferon's. You will never
be the same.
