“I have felt the stigma of Hep C since the day I was diagnosed and I am tired of feeling ashamed. I think if I talk to others who have gone through this, I can finally get past some of these feelings. I would like to turn the old years around into something helpful to others but I know I can never do that as long as I am afraid of others knowing. Please share your stories with me.”
lolacme’s “The stigma and shame of having hep C”

“I just went in to get the results from my 2nd week blood test while on Viekiera Pak and ribavirin. I was told that my liver enzymes were officially in the normal range. When I go back for more blood work in 2 weeks they will tell me if the virus is still detectable in my body. Can anyone tell me what the number is for a normal enzyme level?”
