I am new to this site.  I have been going with a guy for almost a year now and we just found out that he may have hep c.  He went to a specialist this week and they performed a bunch of tests on him.  The only trouble is he won't get the results until his next appointment (next month).  I love this man with all of my heart and soul and I want to help him get through this but I really don't know where to start.  I have been doing some research and at least now we are not in the dark about hepatitis C.  Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to help him.  I have already told him that no matter what the doctors tell him I was not leaving him.  I love him to much.......

Hi Terrijames~

Hopefully there will be some people on this board who may offer much good advice. And, should you want/need more, there is a very active board at MSN Health...free sign in and go to the Hepatitis C board. Try to keep this in mind: Knowledge is Power.

I hope your BF will have negative results. I know how very difficult the waiting is. I was dating a very nice guy who was diagnosed during our courtship...though I tried to be supportive (friends don't run just because you're sick), he broke off our relationship stating that his diagnosis really messed up his head. I'm sorry he felt the need to go it alone. But it is his choice. Yes, it is scarey, shocking, numbing...but NOT a death sentence. I know it's easier said than done, and waiting a month for confirmation is terribly stressful, but try not to worry about things that have not yet come to pass. Hope for the best, and then deal with what comes. Worrying won't change a thing..only produce negative energy. At this point, you and your BF can only take it one day at a time. And I hope your BF realizes and appreciates having someone who cares so much. Not everyone is willing to make that kind of a commitment.
I wish you both all the best....

Hi Terrijames.... If you do a search on Naomi Judd, you should be able to get to her website, where she has information posted on Hepatitis C and I believe some links as well. I found it by doing a search on Hepatitis as I thought this *might* be what I have, since I am also a Nurse, and it was through Naomi's career as a Nurse, that she contracted Hep. C. Give it a look, and HOPE it has some information for you.
