One of the functions of a health activist is to remind each other of those things that we forget. We all know we about the suppose to’s—we are suppose to eat well, get enough sleep, exercise, etc. Sometimes in order to embrace the suppose to’s, we need something firm to grab on to—a lifeline that will keep us from drowning. One of my lifelines is this: Having hepatitis C doesn’t mean that hepatitis C has me. Doing those suppose to’s helps me manage hepatitis C.
