I'm losing my mind. My boyfriend was just told he has hep c. Then how I found out was by a phone call saying get tested. What do I do? I'm so scared. Our relationship has been rocky like hell.....and bow to throw this in the mix!?!?! Not sure what steps to take as a whole. From....our apartment....testing....treatments.....parents....humility. someone help......please.

Slow down and take a breath! One thing at a time and priortize the things you can do something about. Testing should be done and while you are talking to your MD be sure he knows when your "possible" exposure would have been. Your health comes first. Treatments...you don't even know that you have anything to treat yet. Do not tell anyone you have Hep C until you get test results back that say you do. Your relationship...counseling would be a good route for you to go together. It will help you figure things out and teach you how to communicate with each other! Good luck and please keep us posted!

There is so Much more bothering me. I just don't think I can be with him any longer. We fight to much I can't do what I love to do. Going to the store I have to be escorted. I'm not one to break someone's heart...but I don't think I can do it. I'm so emotionally tired. I called out of work because I have gotten no sleep in 4 days literally none. I stay up and scream and cry. I love him dearly he was my love as a child we didn't stay in touch then ten years later he popped up. He has so much in his past that now its catching up to us. And I don't know if I can handle it. I though I was strong maybe I'm not. I don't know anymore

Just because you boyfriend has hep c does not mean that you do too. Get tested and find out if you have it. Even if you test positive don't panic, there are new treatments around the corner.
