“My husband was diagnosed in 2010 and we thought it was from his tattoo. The Dr suggested I get tested and I too am positive. What are the odds of that? My Dr said it was from having sex with my husband. But I had a blood transfusion in ’84, so what if I actually gave it to him? His Genotype is 1 and mine 1A. His RNA quant is 200,000 but mine is over 3 million.”
littlekansas’ “Husband and now me with Hep C”

“I was interested in the way people talked about ‘brain fog’ lifting mid treatment. At first I thought they meant a side effect of the drugs but then found out that having difficulty concentrating and being unable to focus, can be symptomatic of hep C. This is a revelation for me and very exciting as I have struggled with these issues and get very frustrated at not being able to think clearly when talking to others.”
