Strike Two....

My latest visit to the doctor has seen me leave with a Hepatitis C diagnosis....

Fuck.

My crystal clear, healthy as ever liver enzyme tests from late January have been replaced with a test result so high it shows my liver is extremely inflamed, and dangerously over-worked.

Mother fucking whore.

Booze is now completely out and I'm off to see a hepatologist in the very near future to see if what can be done.

Thankfully though, this is curable...with a 12 week intensive course of antiviral drugs, but there is a cure.

This latest news has certainly given me a massive wake up call... the last 5 months since my last diagnosis have been a drunken blur, with little regard for myself, or anybody else in my life.

It stops now.

Hey, sorry to hear this, hope you're feeling better soon.

Sometimes in the crazy mix of all the crap we have to do and deal with, looking after ourselves can be the first thing we forget.

Look after yourself, Ben.
