A sudden diagnosis of HepB can be freightening. And what you are feeling is quite normal. Most of us who find out by accident share your experience. And I am sorry that it has affected your employment. It just goes to show the public's ignorance on HepB.
Being from the Philippines, 39 years old, no symptoms, don't know when you got it are significant risk factors for a chronic infection. If you are female, your son should be tested for HepB as well since transmission from mother to baby at birth is quite common. This is not to add to your stress. It is an opportunity to take care of oneself.
While treatment is available, not everyone who has HepB needs treatment.
