I have 3 kids and i fear on a daily basis i will give it to them. i kno i need to have treatment, im just very scared to hear exactly wat is going on. I used to b an iv drug user but have been clean for over 2 yrs
Dear Clay's Wife, i know you are scared and probably are having a tough time figuring out what to do first. As scared as you are, you will have to see the dr first, then an addiction specialist for counseling and an attorney, just in case. The dr can diagnose and offer treatment, the addiction specialist will know of resources for hep b and c suffererw that a norml plain counselor might not know of and the attorney will help with legal papers you may need. I realize you might not hqve insurance or extra money, if that is the case, try some AA meetings, listen for people wno identify as addicts and ask them about resources and programs for those who do NOT have money or insurances, they may have been thru something similar and know whe these programs are.
A second option for that would be you local mental health facility, the one your town, city or county runs, they are usually based on income, they may also know of programs or resources to help, and may have a low cost or no cost addiction specialist. I see you have been sober for 2 years, congrats, but an addiction specialist will have treated others in similar circumstances and can guide and support you, that is why you want to still use that type of counselor. They are great at helping you figure out what to do first, and what your options are, or whqt programs you qualify for. Where i live, they qre trying to help those with hep c, and i think they can get peope signed up for medicaid quickly. You will have support on this site, if you stay. I am saying some prayers for you. Patti
There is new meds for hepatitis. Far less side effects. Aside from vomiting is your right side tender to touch? Have you had a biopsy? That will tell how bad a shape your liver is in. And do you know your viral load. When i was diagnosed in 1999, my viral load was 800,000 now its 6,000,000. I feel fine. About giving it to your children not to worry, as long as your blood doesn't. get into them. like if they had a cut and somehow your blood went into any cuts then you should worry.
