I contracted Hepatitis C through drug use and was treated twice with interferon almost 20 years later and finally was clear of the virus.
My problem is that while I gave up drugs I picked up alcohol so actually, in terms of liver health I am no better off.
My husband is a daily very heavy drinker and this makes it even more difficult to stay off.
I say daily I will stop but I cannot do more than a couple of days.
I have little money and have attended free public health counselling to no avail.
My major concern is that my liver damage continues to progress despite being virus free. I was told I have fibrosis at my last ultrasound.
I am hopeless.
