""comments pertaining to hepatitis information"""
I carry this virus that has affected every part of my life, from relationships with my family and husband, to my ability to keep a job to my sense of humor and fair play. Pleases define "comments pertaining to hepatitis information" for me. I am ready to give it a fair chance, but would like to know the rules.
The Hepatitis Community Forum (see top of this page for link) is for sharing support and non-medically related discussions/conversation.
This forum (Hepatitis) is for posting MEDICAL QUESTIONS, the LATEST RESEARCH INFORMATION and MEDICALLY RELATED HEPATITIS DISCUSSIONS ONLY.
Hopefully I've explained the difference. If not, please let me know.

After carrying the virus for 30 years and going thru IFN tx, I have bad brain fog (empirically determined, not medically proven) but I am still NOT sure I understand the difference between the two forums. It does not matter, the effect to separate the two has "chilled" my feelings about speaking out here. When I find the latest research and want to share it strickly for support, I will be very confused about where to go. And fearful I have chosen the wrong place.
Good luck on the endeavor, I will continue to do as I always have, use my best judgement. But as I am human, I am sometimes guilty of being unable to find my best judgement, when I have news that elates me, or I discover facts that crush me. So as with everything related to the virus, I can learn to "tread lightly." Just wish I didn't have to.
I think that will ruin the forum to try to split it up into only research vs all other HCV related issues. There is no way new people will comprehend it, they will just become more confused. I dont understand why that was done nor do I think it will benefit anyone. This seems like a bad idea to me.
I totally agree with Willows and Kalio.
If we post a study/research on this board, does that mean we have to go to the other board to discuss our personal issues with it? In this forum we typically interwine the personal and research. Why is this going to change? I think it won
Perhaps they're making one pay, and the other free??? (Just wild speculation)
I don't understand it, either.
