I am 43 yo, live in maryland, 2 young children and feel like my life as I knew it just ended. I have never had any health issues. I had a blood test for a new life insurance and just like that..a huge shock. I am going for my first sonogram tomorrow. My GP told me not to worry because I was crying (after I searched the internet when I came home). She said that even though I have AMA M2 (47.6) and elevated LPT (alt is 42 and ggt is 141) that I still might not have PBC. I think I do. It just seems so obvious after reading everything online. I have read everything on the internet since yesterday and read all the reports of a short life expectancy and have read this site. I don't know what to think. I've cried and stayed in the bedroom away from the kids all weekend. I don't want to have an incurable illness. How do you live every day not knowing when it will progress?
