Take the time you need to recover from the news. It's very shocking at first...

These days, there's a cure. Just a few years back there was none. Please take comfort in that. I'd advise you to stay away from Google at first. Go see a Dr., if you can, depending on what country you hail from and what insurance you have, you could be on your way to a cure in a few weeks!

Take a deep breath, then take another, ...

It's going to be ok. (((hug))) I and several others here have raised perfectly healthy children that have tested negative for hep c.  If your careful with cuts, only you treat them, keep your toothbrush, razors and nail trimmers up where your kids can't reach them. You'll be fine.

Then you'll get tx. And you'll be cured.

Take a deep breath, counting 1, 2, 3, 4, hold for 4 exhale for four...

It really is going to be ok...

Literally, anytime :)

Also, I should add, I've been married for 25 years and my husband has always tested neg. He has to be checked for his job. :)

Xitlali,  I have had Hep C for over 40 years, been married for 36 of those. Wife has always tested negative. Also, have 3 kids ( now 35,25, and 22) who are not infected. All should be well with the toddlers as long as You use basic hygiene and use common sense when it comes to bodily fluids (i.e. blood). Love 'em , hold 'em , hug 'em. Then get to the Doc and check out Your course of action to treatment. All will be well in the world once more, have faith and stay the course!!!

The treatments/cures for hep c are improving every day. Go ee a doctor, discuss your options. It's a very slow moving virus.

I've had two kids and a husband and haven't infected either of them.
