Me and Hep C:
How I Became HCV+

The dragon, Hepatitis C

To learn more about risk factors for HCV infection, please read the fact sheet Frequently Asked Questions About Hepatitis C courtesy of the HCV Advocate website.  I suggest downloading and printing this fact sheet, then taking it with you to your next doctor's appointment to help you begin the discussion about HCV with your health care provider.

To find an anonymous HCV testing facility in your community, call or visit the website for your local county health department or call your local 211 information and referral line (USA only.)

You can also purchase home HCV test kits, like this one from Drugstore.com:

I could just weep after watching this video and I know you are not a victim, you are probably one of the strongest women I know. You are one of me heroes to tell you the truth. I'm just sorry that you have had to go through so much, so often. I pray for your strength and continued positive attitude. Feel blessed, I kiss you on the top of your head for good luck. Love from a friend.

I was really interested in reading this entry... but it is a video and I can't watch those. :( I hope someday you share in text form as well. :)

Thank you so much for sharing this! A young woman I worked with has Hep C. She's 19 and fortunately, has your strength. Instead of being bitter or depressed, she is one of the most positive, compassionate people I have ever met. I am definitely reccomending your site to her.
Thank you again!
