Hey all! So I have been diagnosed and underwent treatment(nonresponder-even though I quit drinking while I was in treatment) for HCV a few years ago but until just recently, I have been in denial. I am finally coming to grips with the idea that ignoring this disease will not make it go away! Anyway, how do you tell those that are close to you that you have this disease? Most of my family and a couple of really close friends know but I am so afraid that many of my friends will drop me like a hotcake. I don't think at this point in my life I can take any more rejection. I am a single mom and feel I need all the friends I can get and would hate to lose any of them. I just need to know how you go about it. Many of my friends are drinkers and I'm shooting for a new start. Any advice would be much appreciated.
