I am only 21 years old and I have Hep C. I found out when I was in High school. I gave blood at school and got a letter saying I had it. I was so confused. I never used IV drugs or anything like that. I went to the doctor and he was so rude He treated me like I was just another "junkie" or something. So I got no help there. I realize there is no cure, but sometimes I feel so hopeless and have no motivation. I feel like my life is ruined. Will I be able to have kids, get married, or even live a normal life? I still havent told anyone besides my parents and they are so messed up themselves They dont even care. Will I ever be able to lead a normal life?
