My name is Samantha & Im 23 years old. My friends & family call me sam or sam jo, so feel free :) I came to this community because last week I had an accidental needle poke at work (Im an LPN) & I was immediatly tested to see if I have AIDS or Hepatitis & if the person whos needle I poked myself had AIDS or any type of Hepatitis. It came back that all her tests were fine, but I had a positive hapatitis c result. Im unsure how I could of gotten hep c & at this point Im just confused about everything. I do have many tattoos which is the only way I feel this could of happened, but I have read that tattoos have never been proven or linked to hep c. Anyways, long story short, I went today to have nucleic acid testing done, I guess thats a definate way to find out if my reading was fale positive. My whole future is running thru my head & I feel like everything is crumbling. I am engaged to be married in 9 months & if I come out surly positive with hep c then he will have to be tested too. Ever sense I found out I feel like I have been taken over & Im scared I will give it to him or someone else. Also we planned Immediatly after our wedding to start having kids & now I feel like we cant because I was reading 5 out of every 100 born to hep. c mothers will get it....& I feel like my luck I will give my child hepatitis. I know it could be worse & I should feel greatful that its not worse but I dont know how to look on the up side. This is so hard to deal with right now. Then my fiance keeps trying to encourage me to get treatment immediatly once we find out if I have it for sure but I have been reading about some of you who have had tx & it doesnt sound like a good thing to go thru. I am trying to be positive but I feel like I have already given up on myself. Anyone with advice please share.
love sam jo

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
