I live in Miami and I was diagnosed with HBV 3 years ago and it was devastating because I didn’t know anything about that disease and also I couldn’t understand if, as the doctor said, I must have acquired it when I was born, no one had ever detected it until I was 65 and only in a casual.
Although I am an inactive carrier, it has been very hard for me because until that moment I considered myself a healthy person without any chronic disease, normal blood pressure without diabetes, etc., only a slightly high cholesterol. For all this I hoped to at least reach 86 years like my mother. I was such a hapy person, all my expectations in life in one way or another had been fulfilled and suddenly everything changed, now I know that I have about a 40% chance of getting liver cancer. I never talk about it with anyone, just the family, I feel that there are many reservations with this disease due to ignorance, luckily my husband does not suffer from it
My greatest hope that the cure for this disease will come soon
