My names Kyrstin im 22 years old i was diagnosed last November. I had contracted it from a ex boyfriend. I didnt know much and still not alot about HCV. I have been having a really tough time emotionally with dealing with it. Everyone around me is getting married and having babies and i barely leave me house. My anxiety has gotten worse i feel like when im out in public people can just tell thay i have the virus. I am seeing my doctor in november and we will discuss treatment. Im just looking for someone to talk too and relate too.
