    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I am new to this community. My doctor has discussed waiting for the new medicine that is coming out hopefully soon. Being 64 years old that it might be better for me than the shots. Just found out I had this in the last year and a half. Lately I am getting very tired and ache is this a normal part of living with hep c? I was so upset to learn I have this, and can use some moral support from people who understand.
