Note: the dates are not accurate, but this is a great story of a woman’s battle with hepatitis C and how she is helping the community – Alan
I’VE HAD THIS virus in my body for nearly 30 years. I found out I had it in 1990. Back then, they told me it was “non-A, non-B”.
In 2010 they gave it a name: Hepatitis C.
There are around 20,000 to 50,000 people with this disease in Ireland at the moment. Knowing that there is a virus in your body that’s active… it’s not very good for your mental health.
Some people cope better than others with that. Some find it difficult.
