I've been reading about the CDC's recommendation that all baby boomers get tested for Hep C. I'm just wondering what others think about it. By way of disclosure, I was tested at a public health clinic in a very bad neighborhood a number of years ago. My H (who lost his "D" after this episode) cheated on me with a non-baby boomer infected with Hep C. I sought out a free clinic so my employer wouldn't know I went for the test. Fortunately for H, I was negative. If I'd been positive, I'd probably be a widowed jail inmate. I forced him to get tested as well and he was also negative. When my friends have asked, I've said I will get the test when insurance covers it even though I see no reason to take it again. Their interest in taking the test generally coincides with how wild they think their youth and that of their spouse was. I was somewhat surprised to learn that so many boomers are at risk. I know only one boomer who has it and she was diagnosed about 20 years ago. She shot up about a half dozen times in the late 70's and early 80's and that was apparently enough. So, my fellow boomers, are you planning on getting a Hep C test and what will you do with the knowledge?
