  1. I just recently found out I may have cirrhosis. I had blood work and a ultrasound and the results say “the results are suggestive of liver cirrhosis”. This is alcohol related and was told to stop drinking . I am trying and have cut way back and had a follow up blood work done and my liver enzymes dropped to almost within normal limits. I want to go to a treatment center because I have been unsuccessful quitting on my own, but I have horrible insurance and cannot afford it. I have also sought counseling and AA meetings but nothing is working. I feel alone and scared, I am so thankful to have found your blog. No one I know is aware of my problem. I am praying to quit and heal my liver. I don’t have a clue what “stage” I am in but I am starting to get some symptoms. My weight has been steadily dropping because I am not hungry, I can’t sleep, and I am starting to get those red dots on various areas of my body. Please help me. I have three beautiful children and 4 grandchildren. I have a husband who is not the best support in the world, he just keeps saying…just quit, and is angry all the time. I don’t want this anymore, but feel as though I have no where to turn.

    1. Hey love,
      I’m so glad to hear from you. The symptoms are hard to deal with cause you know if you can see them, that you’re liver has taken a beating. Addictions are hard, no matter what they are. The 12 steps don’t always work for everyone, but I wonder if you just found a different group? I recently talked to a friend who went to Celebrate Recovery. It was really a good starting place for her. She no longer attends, but is over 2 years sober. Get with my liver groups on Facebook. Every single day I hear from a best friend who has had an anniversary. One dear friend just had her 30 year.
      Let me assure you that if you quit now, you can possibly live for many years. My dad was in a hepatic coma and almost died. He quit drinking for 20 years and we had a marvelous time watching him help raise the grandkids.
      About the husband…. You don’t need negative support in your life. I understand NO support, and you can work around that, but if he has anger stuff, you’re going to try to adapt to help him feel better. You end up losing in that game 100% of the time.
      Find me on Facebook as ihelpc Karen or look for ihelpc.com. Then go look at my friends. They’re all there because of liver disease. It doesn’t matter how you get it, we’re all in this together. You have a bright future and I encourage you to continue to look for help in your city. Let me know if I can do anything to help…
      xo Karen

    2. I, too, was diagnosed with alcohol related Hep C and cirrhosis. Couldn’t stand AA meetings. I decided to quit because my doctor told me I would probably live for just a few more months. That was 6 years ago. I was due to have a liver transplant (they won’t do it if you drink). On my last appointment my doc said I no longer qualified for the transplant. I started to cry. He hugged me and said I don’t qualify because I am actually getting better! I start my Hep C treatment next week which they wouldn’t have given me if I drank. Please try to stop drinking and let your will to live help you overcome this. It is suicidal if you continue. Try to find an AA meeting you can tolerate. You’re life depends on it. I wish you the best. You can do it.

      1. This is a timely message today. I’m so proud of you for getting help through AA. It IS NOT easy to find a group that you click with. I’m really happy that you were able to have sobriety and get your liver recovered!!!
        Soon you will be HEP c free. I know of another recovered alcoholic who just treated. He got tired toward the end, but he did great and you will too. He’s back to doing everything he wants now.
        I also think of alcoholism as suicide. I need to write about it and am trying to. My dad died from it and my sis just passed also and had just started drinking again a couple of years ago. Again, thanks for your comment and I’m so happy that you’re free to have a bright future.
        All my best to you. You’re almost like an angel dropping in today. I prayerfully asked if I should write about AA. Then I logged on and saw your message…. xoxo Karen:)

  2. Hi Karen,
