Hi I'm new to this board. I'm 26 years old and was diagnosed with Hepatits C in 1996 when I was 19. I must have got it way back in the early 80's (1983 I believe) when I was being treated for Leukemia and was given blood tranfusions. I'm in remission of leukemia. Back in 1996 after i was diagnosed with hepatitis c I had a liver biopsy and they found that it was at its very early stage. My doctors from when I had Leukemia said that I couldn't take the medications for hepatis c because it could bring back my leukemia... so ever since then I have not treated my hepatitis c. I have lived in a state of depression. I have drank alcohol on more than one occasion... not regularly but maybe once every 1 or 2 years. I drank and got drunk one night in 1997 or 1998... When I finally decided I wanted to start doing something about it I got a checkup in the summer of 2001 and was told it looked fine. I started eating right and working out since I was told my liver looked fine and I wanted to keep it that way. I then fell into a state of depression and drank one day in dec 2001...had a few beers, then again one day in january 2002... I probably had only 2 cups of beer from a keg. I got a checkup a few months later and was told my liver looked fine. I fall in and out of depression. I drank again this past July... 3 out of 4 nights. The first night I got really drunk, the second night I had 1 beer, then I didn't drink the next night and then had 2 or 3 beers the last night. Well now I'm starting to feel the effects of hepatits c... I can't sleep, have pinching feeling on my right side, feel light headed and tired, feel bloated and cold chills. Its really making it difficult to do anything. I can't handle knowing I have hepatitis c, I'm scared and don't know what to do. I get into states where I feel great and want to fight it and do things like eat right and workout and then i fall into a state of depression and drink. I'm making an appointment to see how bad my liver is now. I'm lost because I feel like there is nothing I can do, I really don't have anyone that understands how I'm feeling and want to help and I feel like I'm just dying. I probably have had hepatits c for 20 years now... since I was 7 when I was being treated for leukemia. Well thats my life story, I hope someone can give me some advice since it seems no one is doing any of that in my life lately. Thanks
