I'm glad I found this group. Both are very tough for me to deal with. I was also diagnosed Bi-polar when I was fifteen. They say it has a lot to do with Post traumatic stress disorder. I did treatment for my Hep. C, it is somewhat dormant, but the treatment lead to fibermyalgia (spell check) and an auto immune difficiency. (another spell check) I am going to be thirty five and this is just hard for me to grasp somedays. The pain pills are hard on my liver and so is the medicine I take for the bi-polar, basically all of them are, it is a rough situation. I try to grin and bear it one affects the other. I say a lot of prayers to. It can be hard on my family. I work part time and go to college, I try to stay as busy as I can so I don't think about it. But it hurts. I'm going to follow through with everything I can until my liver goes or I just can't anymore. So Wish me luck ladies.

I totally get it, I was diagnosed bi-polar at 13, Fibro at 30, was just tested for hep-c still not sure on that they told me i've been exposed so waiting on more tests. I have 4 kids and I want to go back to school. I moved about 8 months ago and now have no support group. My family is only understanding to a point. I get what your going through. If you want a pen-pal to chat with I'm here.
