I found this web sight when Don was first diagnosed with Hep. C.
Don and I are polar opposites in many ways - and one of those ways is how we each cope with his disease. Don only wants to know what he needs to know to get through that day...
I, on the other hand feel the need to know my enemy. I have to look him in the face to be able to fight ...and with that - I had to know everything about Hepatitis. This web sight - and more specifically, the forum for Hep. C patients has answered more of my questions and given me a clearer understanding of what we were facing...and better yet - how to (physically) fight it!
The people on this forum are mostly Hepatitis patients..but there are also (like me) family members. No one is judgmental. Everyone I have encountered has been very very open and honest with their own experiences (sometimes very embarrassing) with treatments, medications, side effects, solutions etc. We have more than once been able to relieve certain problems Don has experienced with information obtained through this sight.
The reason I am posting this is because I have been sent many private e-mails from people who are also dealing with Hepatitis. People who prefer not to post public comments or who do not have their own blogs.
Please take time to visit this web sight if you need information. It may be a blessing ... it has been for us.
I want everyone to know just how much I TRULY APPRECIATE every one of you. Your comments, e mails and support really lift our spirits!
