My story started on 01/01/2000, just home from 3 day trip. Illness forced me to the ER with massive internal bleeding. Not ulcers but something at the time I wouldn't of had a clue or any knowledge of. Tests came back 1 week later Hepatitis C, esophageal varicies.
Continued to work for 6 more years with two more major bleeds and stays in intensive care.I have always been active and a part of the community,worked full time,paid taxes and carried health insurance until 08/31/2006 and thats when I lost my job of 20+
years. I am 50 yrs old and believe in a higher power to follow and help me keep balance. Never smoked haven't drank alcohol in 14 + years. I am just looking for resources and information to help me live a peaceful and productive life.I take and need a drug called propranalol 20 mg 2 times a day to stop portal varicies from bleeding, Another called lactalose that helps clear ammonia out of my blood stream and some effexor and tramodal for depression and pain. Thank You for letting me
share my story.
