Just diagnosed tonight - sent an email with my lab results. Early stage and will be treated with long term medication per doctor’s note. He emailed me. Doctor appt isn’t for one month but I am going to try to move it up.
Question - why would I continue living? It sounds like I take the medication until I need a liver and I also stop drinking - which I didn’t do much of anyway ~2 drinks/week - so I am unsure why I would suffer with this only to die in a few years I’m 50 and it sounds like I will live another 7ish years. Will need to quit my stressful job I love and spend less money, which I enjoy spending, and no more wine with friends. Which I also enjoy. So why hang in here if it isn’t going to turn out all right? I don’t see an upside if there isn’t a cure and it’s going to lead to more pain to just die young. Not sure why I would save funds for retirement either since that won’t happen. Do people actually commit suicide over this, and if so, how?
