I know iits relevant to state the cause of the liver problem you may suffer from. But why is it always"relevant " to state what was NOT the cause. I'm talking about the number of times contributors who immediately say after describing the nature of their illness "But I don't / never did drink"
The implication being unlike those with alcohol related liver disease I / we are not responsible for our illness.
We already feel the burden of how alcohol ruined our lives and can do without the prejudice we feel coming from this community which we hope to be non-judgmental. Addiction to alcohol is a disease and don't forget the extra hurdles we have to overcome before we are even considered for a transplant.
