Hepatitis C is not a hopeless condition - there is a lot you can do to help yourself. The most important thing is to recognise that you have choices, and these choices can lead to action. Taking responsibility for your health is a very positive and empowering step.
Before you make any decisions or take any action, try to gather as much information or advice as possible. For example, you may wish to consider the advantages or disadvantages of any actions you may take - are they in your best interests?
Consider who can help or support you when looking at all your options and where possible involve them in formulating an action plan.
Feeling that you are in control of any decisions and actions you may take will result in you feeling less stressed, angry, helpless and negative.
This is your life and your health.
