“It’s been so long since I was even on one of these  Hep C  forums, because it was way too depressing, and not a fresh statement could be made anymore; we had heard them all! So after being away from Janus, and a couple other sites for at least 6 years, I bumped into this one, and so glad I did.  It's so upbeat, it’s so nice to hear about such wonderful successes, story after story.  And to be able to laugh, and almost cry on hearing that somebody had a runny nose, and a bit of a rash. Thanks for being here to spread the word of hope and joy to so many of us!”
Roger McGuinn’s “New to this Forum, Finally a Happy Place!”

“A little while ago, I found out I tested positive for the antibodies and I need more testing. I'm out of work right now and I have no insurance. I have been trying to figure out what I am supposed to do. What's my first step? I know I have not been feeling well at all and I suspect it’s related. Does anyone know what my first move should be? I'm lost, scared, and definitely need some help with this.”
