Living with Hep C

Posted Jan 22 2009 5:17pm

  I was diagnosed back in Nov. 6, 1993 as having HCGV.  For those of you who do not know the shorthand, that stands for Hepatitus C, G-Variant/Virus.  In other words the Anti-Virus.  And to top it off, it is Chronic.  This means I can only pass it on through a open wound, with direct blood transferrence.

   Now when I was first infected, was during an emergency surgical procedure, due to a vehicular accident, after stopping to help a woman whose car was broken down on the Interstate.   Because of my blood type, RH negative, type O, I was required to receive blood by-products only, and this was back on Nov. 6, 1986.  No such luck with testing then.

   So now I am unable to receive treatment, due to allergies to all sorts of medications, heart trouble, uncrontable tpye 2 diabetes, and now, TUMORS.

   So at this point, I just wish to be allowed to live in relative comfort, with as little stress as possible.

    This is my plan on how to live with Hep C.
