Hey guys, I usually post on a/p, depression, and fibromyalgia, as I have all of that, but this post is for my dad.
My mom and I were coming home and we happened to be talking about insurance, because I was recently dx with Fibro. She said my dad couldnt get insurance. I knew about a year ago he was going to a blood doc. He told me some stuff about it, but basically said it was nothing. I never thought twice about it. But, my mom asked if I knew why he went and I said no. No one ever tells me anything....and she said....well I am tired of keeping his secrets....
Then she said, 'He has Hepatitis C.'
I was shocked. I didnt know what to say or think about it. Or what to think of my dad for one thing. They dont get along so great, and I think I know why now. She thinks he may have had an affair 10 yrs ago and thats how he got it. He claims he has no idea how he could have gotten it. So....who am I to believe. What am I to think.
Its hard for me to look at him without thinking about it. It is a secret and I am not supposed to know. But, I am worried about him. I dont know what to think. She said his 'levels' were low which makes the docs think he got it within the last 10 years. But, my mom doesnt have it. And they have 3 kids together....the last one being 10yrs old! Coincidence!
So, my concern is what is going to happen to him? She said he wasnt going to the doc. I think he may have to get his 'levels' checked every 6 months or something. I am not sure. Its a secret so no one talks about it.
But, what should I do? Should I worry about
him? What could happen in the future for him? I would really appreciate any help! Thanks!
