Things not to say to a person with Hepatitis C

Things to not say to a person with Hepatitis C

 You understand this medical stuff. Explain it to me like I am an insensitive idiot

 What did you do to get Hep C?  Insensitive Idiot again. If I want you to know, I’ll tell you

What is your endpoint?  Death?  Transplant?  Winter Olympics?

Would you like concealer for your eyes?  Here just keep it.

Are you okay in that chair?  You are listing about 20 degrees

Maybe we should wait to clean your teeth after your treatment is finished

You got crazy eyes

You don’t seem like yourself.  No shit

When will you get back to normal? Normal is a setting on a washing machine

Hey I’m getting a carload of friends and we are coming to spend the day with you!

So now you are healed?

I didn’t recognize you.

What happened to your hair?  You might think about Rogaine

You look like shit!

What is that disease you got?  I want to tell everyone at the family reunion.   You have never met these people but they care

We are all praying for you.  A lot of people with Hep C have no friends/family due to previous what ever.  Surely God doesn’t go by share of voice

Didn’t your ex husband die after a liver transplant?  Yes

So when is your transplant?

Didn’t David Crosby have a couple of transplants?

Wow, you have really lost some weight.  Good for you

Wow this time you didn’t shed the extra pounds

There is a blood drive today in the lobby.
