Hi Westerngirl,

You're not alone. There's a whole community of folks here with all kinds of experience/knowledge.

If you have any questions - post them and someone should be able to provide an answer.

Best wishes, Mike

Western girl - you are not alone. We are all here in the same boat. Trying to get ashore. If your husband won't cooperate ( my brother was a non cooperator ) then take care of yourself. Get help, get advice and get treatment that now works! Get tough and get strong. Just for you. You are the only one you can truly take care of.

Hi western girl, most of us have been dealing with hepc for many years waiting for an effective treatment and Now there is one, so many are seeking treatment, once your husband sees how well you do on treatment, he will want to get better if possible...

You are not alone, there are over 3-4 million people in the US alone with hepc, and some 200 million worldwide dealing with hepc, so welcome to support, many here have helped me learn so much to better help myself and after 4 weeks Harvoni, I'm feeling a lot better...

So pull up a chair, we ain't going nowhere just yet!

Here's to you getting well :)
