I was immunized against hep b while working as a nurses aide, completed the series, and contracted hep b from my husband almost 2 yrs ago. NO antibodies at all,,,,,,,,luckily my body fought it off and it was not chronic,but sometimes the immunizations dont work, i think i saw its like 1 percent of ppl it doesnt work on. I also got very very ill during my bought with it, was hospitalized and my dr told me later he thought I wasnt going to make it,,,,,that is very rare too, most ppl dont even know when they contract it. sorry to hear you can't build the antibodies, and as far as the caribbean vacations,,,at least youve had those kind of vacations, before this...there is alot to see if you like to travel in the U.S. :) Dont give up,,are you on treatment for hep? take care

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body,but rather to skid in sideways,chocolate in one hand,wine in the other,body used up ,totally worn out and screaming"WOOOOHOO WHAT A RIDE!!!"
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here, we might as well dance:)
