2 Years On! Hepatitis C Free! And How You Can Be Too!

In Nepal Recently!

Hey Guys!!! I’m Hep C free still

I can’t quite believe that my last blog post was the 3rd of Septembet 2013! Nearly 2 years ago!

That means I am two years free of the hep C Virus and absolutely loving my life at the moment. After I had gotten hep c free I packed my bags and went off to explore the world some more. India, Kashmir, Thailand again, Nepal, Burma and so on.

Life couldn’t be better. I remember writing my very first blog post on this site and thinking dreaming into the future how great it would feel to have been ‘cured’ and what a weight off my mind it would be…. and that’s exactly how it has turned out!

It all seems but a distant memory to be honest but I do remember how traumatized I felt at the beginning. It was bewildering to have to come to terms with the fact that I had picked up a potentially harmful disease and to then have to go out and make the effort to really understand the disease, what it was all about and what the best way forward for me was.

I learned a lot from the experience. It made me grow as a person… and whilst of course I wouldn’t want to repeat it, I do think it has reinforced one of my big beliefs. And this belief I believe is what really motivated and kept me going through what were some tough times. That belief is the fact that

‘Everything happens for a reason and that a glass half full is way better than no glass at all’.

Overly positive, hippy-dippy, away with the fairies. right? I know that is what some people will think, however I firmly believe that thoughts become things and what we think about we bring about, and that having a positive mindset will inevitably bring about better results, situations and outcomes than if we approach things with a bit of a dark mindset.

You may well ask that if you are such a positive person, how did you contract hepaitis C in the first place? Well I can only shrug my shoulders and say I have no idea. Like anyone I have been through some dark times pre-contracting hep C and maybe it was those thoughts and feelings that manifested as the disease in my body or maybe it was meant to happen to make me grow into the better life I now have?

Anyway, I’m starting to waffle and that wasn’t my intention. My intention was to state to anyone out there that has contracted or knows some who has contract hepatitis C that:

Your mindset can make a huge difference to your outcome. Are you going to sit around moping? Are you going to cry yourself to sleep every night? Are you going to try and block it out with drugs and alcohol? Are you going to ignore it and hope it goes away?

Or are you going to do what I did?

Get informed! Learn as much as you can about it. Educate yourself about all the options available. Learn the lingo so you can understand what the medical people are saying. Take the immediate doctors advice; change your diet, cut down on the beer, start raw juicing, live a healthy lifestyle and number 1 for me…. be thankful for everything you DO have in your life right now! I am sure there are many things that you are really happy with about your life: family, friends, past achievements and so on be happy for them!

These are the things to focus on. Of course deal with the Hep C but remember that does not define you, you are so much more than that and you can work through it. Do so to the best of your ability, that is all you can do and then let it be. Rest, be healthy, enjoy the simple things in life and look forward to a positive future with a bright image in your head of how great your life is going to be… at whatever stage you are at… there’s is happiness to come! I’ve been there. I know.

Leave a nice postive comment if you intend to follow a positive path in tackling this! And then make it so!

Oh and here’s a little positiv e thining video that I like as it goes a bit deeper in explaining why and how we can think and feel more positive which is so important:
