Branching Out From Hepatitis C

Regular readers may notice that I am not blogging about hepatitis C much these days. Here are the reasons for this:

  • I have a blog on Hepmag.com that is devoted to hepatitis C.
  • Health is a total package. I am constantly looking for ways to stay healthy or be healthier. Words are bursting out of my head, and my blog seems like a good place to put them.
  • Every healthy choice helps us manage hepatitis C.

Health never goes out of fashion. When I look at people in their nineties and hundreds who are still active, it motivates me. But some days I falter. It’s raining or I’d rather catch up on paperwork. When it comes to excuses, I doubt I am alone. This is another reason I am blogging about health.

Health care costs are rising, and my health insurance has a high deductible. The best health insurance plan includes self-care. Using sunscreen properly is considerably better than dealing with melanoma. Not having to go to the doctor fits well in my budget.

If you want to read more about hepatitis C, visit my blog on Hepmag.com. Hope I see you here and there. And if there is anything in particular that you want me to write about, let me know. I hope we’ll be growing old together; really old and really healthy.

    I am so very sorry about the tragic death of your friend. I can identify some, as my younger sister died July 17, 2016. She was 12 yrs younger and always my baby. She was going through testing for double lung transplant when HCV showed up in her blood. We were devasted. I was so terribly concerned she got it from me…but, my Geno type is 2A, from blood transfusion in 1972, and she was 1B. Her husband and I were with her when she passed. I wanted it to be me, not her. I’ve had HCV for 44 years. She was only 61. I have a strong faith and asked God to take me, not my baby sister. Your friends death is devastating, so sudden. I’m so sorry. Teresa

      Teresa, I am sorry for you too. Losing anyone to hepatitis C is particularly devastating. What a wonderful gift you gave her, to be present for her death, and to have a strong faith through it all. Thank you so much for extending comfort to me.
