My husband asked me to stop talking about this diease too him. I feel so bad that I was given this diease and although, he hasn't shown positive for it, he will one of these days and I was expressing my apologies for giving him this gift that keeps giving and maybe one day kill him. I know for a fact how I contracted this diease now. My late husband gave it too me ( I'm guessing 33 years ago. I found out through my former sister-n-law, that her brother was sick with it during his first marriage. I was never told. Ever! We even had a child together. Now I am wondering if it could be passed during conception and child birth? As far as, my current and only husband, I guess I will never say another word to him about this diease. It is so new to me and knowing that I have to start treatment asap I need someone too talk to. Eventually, I will get off my pitty pot when the rings around my *** hurt long enough. lol. I am trying to hang onto some sense of humor. Thanks for reading and responding.
Hi Franny, I just read your question and although I don't know anything about what you have, I felt I just wanted to say I am really sorry that your husband can not give you the support you need. You have to stay strong and if you can not get the support from the people that are around you and suppose to care for you, you then look else where for the support and advice. This is a great site for support and advice, sometimes it can take a little while for people to answer, but someone will answer even if there like me who just want to let you know that we feel for you and hope things will get better for you. look after yourself, liz.
Hey, this is not a death sentence at all, it is treatable remember, so you are ahead of the "disease", simply follow the instructions. Don't stress out about it anymore, its not going to change anything anyway, now is the time to deal and heal yourself... you have to learn to live with Hep-C, understand what/how upsets may cause the Hep-C virus to react to the negativity you are consumed in, and worrying about. So okay, you did not know you had Hep-C, there is every possibility that neither your husband or child will ever be affected/effected/or infected with Hep-C, its a low rate like I stated before, but you can't ignore the facts that it is a possibility, just like herpes, shingles, chicken pox, cold sores (herpes), bedbugs, you can't know all. Your husband is feeling sensitive to the issue of Hep-C, and the possibility of "having" it, and certainly doesn't want the education, "excuses" for having the virus etc...
give him the time, space, and need to be alone with his thoughts, and feelings to deal with this situation you both are facing as a couple and family. Maybe suggest he come with you to your appointments, and talk openly and freely with the physician about his concerns, and cares and questions about Hep-C, get tested too/again, and as often as recommended by a doctor. Now is not the time for argueing who gave who what, or how you acquired it, you are a carrier, with an active/positive blood test for Hep-C, get the treatment and go on living your lives together. Very few die from Hep-C treated, untreated its not the Hep-C alone that gets you, its the liver not being able to function like its suppose to do, after all the liver is the filter system for the blood, gets the junk out of our body not necessary to the defense/immune system. It will be all right, just play by the rules, and don't over burden your liver, or your stress level.
first of all i would like to say stay strong!!! I am 25, a single mother with 3 kids and Im 5 months pregnant with # 4 , I found out that I was Hep C pos. in october 2010. I was just wondering . . . you said that your ex contracted it through iv drug use , but you didnt mention how he gave it to you and how you gave it to your new husband ??? I was just curious bc I am learning more about my disease. If you dont want to answer you dont have to no hard feelings. Hope to hear from you soon :)
