the worst thing which the hepatitis brings me is the discrimination but not the harm to my body. this does really upset me. my hbv-dna test is negative,the function of the liver is normal too. however, the hepatitis b test still shows that the hbsag, hbsab and hbesag are postive.that makes me so difficult to find a job.because in china you have to take some medical examination before you become one staff of the company,once they found you are a hbv-carrier,they just say no but nothing.is that fair? my ability was beaten by those tiny virus? in other country there are many laws against the discrimination ,but in china there is nothing . when can we hbv carriers be treat fairly? discrimination --my forever agony. anyway i have to face the reality. now i have some questions. can the hbsag, hbsab,hbesag be cleared?
Sounds like a government problem, not a treatment problem. You most certainly will have to deal with the government on an issue like that. Discrimination in China is nothing new and with the Human Rights abuses, you're better off going to another country if you really fear your condition is very bad. This is one more reason we Americans should be very happy to live in a country that takes care of theirs.
Don't you have any Human Rights advocates in China? That would be the best place to start. I do't know if you can file a formal discrimination complaint with the governement or your providence, but I would try anything and everything. The best of luck to you and try to go to a European country if your government will allow. You may have to do it in a clinical trial if they will accept you....
That is so unfair that they're able to discriminate agianst you while you're trying to find employment. You're right, here in America, we have the American's With Disabilities Act and others to prevent discrimination. Most of us here on this site have hepatitis c virus. I have, however, read some about hepatitis b and from what I understand, most people's bodies clear the virus by themselves and don't need treatment. If you don't clear, then you have chronic hepatitis b and are infected for life and will continue to be infectious. There are treatments and I'm not sure if those will cause a cure for people infected with hbv. Here is a link to a web site with more information on those medications:
If you don't find the information you're looking for there, you may try the center for disease control. Here is a link for that site:
Good luck to you in your search for information and in your quest for employment. I hope you are able to find a cure and a good job.
Stay the course. It will get better. Your body will acclimate. I went through it three times, never easy, always all the side effects and even some other don't get. I was blindly determined because I knew there would be a light at the end of the tunnel. That light will not be a freight train, so you really don't have to worry that you're going to meet with a disaster.
The doctor should keep an eye on your platelettes and other vital signs, but you have to do the fighting. Have courage and use all your strength and you will be victorious. This is something that will be over, and time moves quickly. Before you know it, you
thanks! thanks!!~~i don't know what to say but thanks. you give me courage, i would stay the course. in china at present , things can not be changed a lot, discrimination will exist in a large areas.but never mind, i belive that one day discrimination would erased from most of the chinese. thank you for giving me so many advices, expecially is magnum ..i feel warm in my heart. i think the discrimination aginst hbv carriers comes from the fear for being infected, this is resonable in my opinion. in that political evronment is unable to change a lot in the coming future,and i have to put my every hope on the medical advancemnet.
