People with hepatitis C tend to hear a lot of - well...there’s no nice way to say it - “Crap” from usually well-meaning people. We understand that most people really do want to help, but sometimes they just don’t seem to think before they speak.

Here are a few of the “Worst” things you can say to your HCV-Positive friend:

1. “Will you stop that constant whining”?

2. “You just need to get out and exercise more.”

3. “It’s all in your head.”

4. “No one ever said life was fair.”

5. “Stop feeling sorry for yourself.”

6. “There are a lot of people worse off than you.”

7. “You think you’ve got problems...”

8. “Maybe you should eat better/take vitamins.”

9. “There is always somebody worse off than you are.”

10. “Cheer up!”

11. “You’re always feeling sorry for yourself.”

12. “Have you been praying/reading the Bible?”

13. “You don’t look sick!”

14. “Everybody knows HCV doesn’t have any symptoms. You’re just looking for attention.”

15. “That which does not kill us makes us stronger.”

16. “Believe me, I know how you feel. I was sick once.”

17. “So, you feel sick. Don’t you always?”

18. “Oh, cheer up!”

19. “Go out and get some fresh air... that always makes me feel better.”

20. “It doesn’t matter what your experience was with biopsy, interferon, side effects of treatments, you HAVE to get the treatment/procedure done. I don’t care about your excuses.”

21. “Gosh.. I would love to be a couch potato and not work all the time; it’s not such a hard life that way.”

22. “I only want to hear good news.”
