    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.

    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.
