I just found out I have Hepatitis C
and I'm not sure how. Or what it means. Or anything, I guess.
I had blood work done recently, and I picked up the results today and the nurse gave me the news. I wasn't expecting it, and I don't know what it means, and I naturally said, "What does that mean?" All she said was, "It means you have Hepatitis C."
Since then, in the last, oh, twenty minutes or so, I've done a bit of research but my mind is honestly spinning. I've never used drugs that require a needle (only some pot and mushrooms a few years ago), and I don't have any tattoos or piercings or what-have-you. The only reason I can think I have it is I had unprotected sex twice in my life, both times with the same girl. Once, a little over a year ago, and the second time just two months ago. I didn't finish either time, and it wasn't rough enough to make any blood on either end.
So I'm not sure how I could have gotten it. I'm worried about telling my mom. I don't even know what it means. I know there's a good chance I'll have it forever, but does this mean no unprotected sex ever? No kids, because I would risk my wife (theoretical, right now) getting infected?
I'm sorry this is not well written. I'm just very confused and scared and all the reading I'm doing opens up a thousand more questions. Does anyone here know someone who has it?
