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.
