Hepatitis C is a severe viral infection that causes liver inflammation and damage. The disease is unnoticeable in some people. In fact, it’s possible to have hepatitis C without realizing it. For others, however, the disease is progressive and interferes with their quality of life.
Hepatitis C may have a major impact on your health, causing fatigue and other symptoms. When you don't feel well physically, leaning on others for support can provide a much-needed emotional boost. Make it your aim to educate yourself about this disease and maintain a strong support network.
