One of the most important things for people who have hep C is to find a hep C support group that will help them through the shock of learning they have hep C through to getting treatment and then into the post-treatment, post-hep C, recovery phase.
This became clear to me when I first learned that I had hep C in 2014. I knew nothing about hep C, nothing at all. My doctor knew a little more than me, enough to get me tested, but, whilst he was a good doctor his knowledge of hep C was pretty limited and, in some cases, completely wrong.
So I went online to look for information and soon found that there were online hep C support forums and hep C support groups on Facebook.
