Anger unhelpful: Cirrhosis from hep c is one of the most common causes for liver transplantation in the U.S. Very bad disease. Hope you are getting treated. Means of acquisition of hep c not always very clear. Some from blood transfusions years ago, IV drug use w needle sharing, but sexual transmission not entirely clear since many couples have only one partner positive after years of cohabitation.

Tx for Hep C: Unfortunately it is bad. The good news is that in few months medicines would cure or eliminate the virus. Make sure you discuss treatment with a liver specialist, a gastoenterologist or infectious disease specialist.
