HEP C and Depression

HEP C and Depression

I have had chronic hepatitis c for about 10 years. I am a 34 year old female and have decided
totally against any form of interferon etc, as I do not like the side effects at all. As well, my liver
function tests are good, so I am staying away from treatment.
What I want to know is, is this depression and fatigue that seem to be with me all the time,
are they normal for someone with hep c, or is it all an excuse or in my mind?
I do not work, because I am tired, and I am currently seeing a psych, and he has advised me
take celexa. How many other Hep C people are on antidepressants too???
Its like, even though my liver function tests are normal, should I still be feeling like crap?
I just feel like I might be using the disease as an excuse not to function normally.
What about pregnancy??The tiredness I have now would increase heaps if I were to have a baby,
so that is on the backburner too.
My husband is working 2 jobs for us and i do nothing. Just seems grossly unfair.
I have to take energy pills to try and get me going and to go for a walk and then get some food at
the shops is all I can do in a day.
I really had to get this stuff off my chest, and any advice/info/help etc. much appreciated.
Thanks for listening.
