excerpt from Melody's new Book The Grief Club
“When I first learnt that I have HCV, I feel contaminated, untouchable. I want it out of me. It takes two years before the fear goes away. I realize that having HCV- like anything that happens to me- isn’t a mistake. My liver isn’t going to explode. HCV becomes part of my destiny, and learning I have it isn’t a bad thing. It gives me an opportunity to take care of my liver. I realize I’m not dying of LCV- I’m living with it. If I live with HCV the rest of my life, so what? I’m still me."
