i hope you dont mind but i thought this could be a good topic and maybe eye opening or fun in a way. if you think it is out of line feel free to lock it. i would like you to share some things that this disease has taught you, whether you are the one with it or the caregiver.
 
hep c has taught me that life is to short to hold on to the bad things. you need to grab life by the handles and enjoy it. it also taught me that you need to tell your loved ones how you feel before its to late and not to take life or health for granted.
 
ok who is next to share?

Great topic worriedgirl!  
I have learned that when times get tough.  That I can dig down deep and be tougher.  Everyone had always told me how strong I was.......I really didn't believe it until I traveled down the liver disease road.   Now I know that I can handle anything life throws at me.
I have also learned that helping others is the greatest gift that I can give myself......I have grown as a person so much more because of it.

Hep C, cirrhosis, and liver cancer have taught me not to take my health for granted, but to be an active participant in staying healthy.  It confirmed to me to not sweat the small stuff.  I also found how strong I could be and what a fighter I am.  I also learned that I WANT to share more and to help others.  It has taught me gratitude on a deep level.
 
Thanks for the topic, WG!
 
Hugs,

I think as a caregiver it has taught me not to get to comfortable that change can happen at any time. That the patient isn't the only one with encephalopathy because a lot of the time I am confused myself and my favorite line is "What the hell" and " What the heck is he doing that for". I think you have to use humor or you won't make it through it.

I was 18 when they discovered I had NASH, and from then on I knew that although I'm young I'm not invincible, and I will pay the price for what I do to my body.

I had cancer 12 years ago and I've learned from what my neighbor is going through I'd rather have it anyday.

Oh I know from reading here that anything to do with the liver is worse than anything else I know of.
