This is my first post as I'm a newbie here.
I was diagnosed last year with liver cirrhosis due to alcohol abuse.
Since being abstinent for over a year now I no longer have ascites and life is pretty good. However, I don't know anyone else with this condition and sometimes feel like I have a death sentence even though the Dr says this isn't the case at all.
I'm told by my gp and specialist how well I'm doing so maybe I'm just a bit of a hypochondriac!
I now work in a treatment centre helping others and do motivational talks to people suffering from alcoholism.
However, I'm good at giving others hope but am sometimes maybe hard on myself.
Sorry if I sound like I should chill out as there's others worse than me, but have been advised to join a support group with people that have the same or similar condition.
Many thanks guys
