Luckylulu, what precisely are your symptoms? I've had hep C since contracting it in the 60s and the only symptom I've ever had is extreme fatigue. I also contracted liver cancer as a result of the hep, but had treatment and surgery over a year ago and am doing well. I agree with the other posters. Giving up is not an option...or shouldn't be. I got disability, but it took me 2 years to get approved, and was based more on my artificial hips and the revisions on one of them, than the hep C. I had filed once with hep C and neck pain from osteoarthritis and was turned down. You would probably need to be close to needing a transplant, near death with end-stage liver disease, or have other issues, to get SS Disability.
