does anybody feel like a leper, the way many hiv+ people must feel, because people are afraid to have them around their children, afraid to take a taste of something off their fork, afraid to mix up which cup they were drinking from? The stigma of how they must have gotten hep c +? i am very interested in hearing other stories. i am 41 , a new member to this site, because i have nobody to talk to as there are really no viable support groups in my area. We are undergoing chemo, yet can't "come out" the way cancer patients can because hep c (like hiv) is generally perceived as a choice of life reprucussion which was not beyond our control. i got hep c when i was a stupid teen ager, now i am a completely different person who is starting her forties.
