What I Know is Hepatitis C

All human beings should try to learn before they die what they are running from, and to, and why. ~ James Thurber

Hepatitis C took a back seat as this week’s news from Newtown, CT hammered us. I can only imagine what it is doing to those more directly related, but speaking for myself, I behaved badly. I reacted and tried to solve the unsolvable by turning it into a call to action, when really, it is a call for prayer and reflection. I should know better than to vent on Facebook. I should know that everyone is in pain, regardless of where one is on the issue of the U.S. 2nd amendment. I should know better, but I didn’t act like I did…

However, there is something that I do know about – hepatitis C. There is only a week left to make comments to USPSTF regarding its hepatitis C recommendations. For more information, click on my home page. This is something I can do, you can do, and although it won’t restore life to those already gone, it will help to prevent needless deaths.

This week’s tragedy is an opportunity to make a difference. For me, I need to stop reacting and start reflecting. This is how healing begins. Living with hepatitis C is hard enough without having to live with resentments and helplessness. May we let go of that which does not help us, and begin helping each other.
