I have told all my friends and cooworkers not to touch me without gloves if I have a cut. Universal precautions for all.



    thanks again for the replies.
    Exactly what I would do too. You are protecting others.
    Hope everything works out well for you bro.

    I understand what your saying, I know it is not a death sentence to contract Hep C, I know it is treatable. It is a game changer in my book, and apparently the agency I work for thinks so too. They want me to go to counseling and will pay for everything I need to do. Has it changed me already? Not knowing is worse than knowing. Can't sleep so well, have some anger in me, I am anxious about my results. Having to wait until December to know for sure, killer. Having BJJ MMA plans put on hold at my age - that really is kinda the least of my concerns at this point, but I need to continue to do stress relief. Let's be real about one thing, I carry a gun, so no one, my family, me, my employer, coworkers, or the public, want me running around half cocked so to speak

    Punching and kicking people at the gym was a great stress reliever, kept me in shape too. Doing BJJ and MMA was also good for the job. I am getting older and the people I deal with tend to stay around the ages of 21-35. I was spending 3 days a week at the gym, roughly 3 hours on Saturdays, and anywhere from 1.5 to 2.5 on Mondays and Wednesdays. That is why I came here, to see what suggestions people had for continued training without being in the gym.

    thank you for your replies.

    that is funny, maybe form a HEP AND HIV fight league. Fight to the death...literally. if someone finds that offensive please have a mod remove it. I can see where that might upset someone, but I'll post it.

    Apparently the mod is a troll so I doubt he'll remove it

    Ern, I wish you the best, and send postive thoughts and engergy your way. You are a stand up dude and commend you on your moral stand on training. There are many selfish people in the word, you sir are not one of them!

    If you're suggesting that he do comps with hep c, I just dont know what to say. Im gonna assume you are ignorant regarding the disease.

    We have a semi local ammy org "So you wanna fight" that does fights at one of the casinos. They dont test for hep. Our guys cant fight there and come back to the gym without getting cleared for hep.
