Mavyret makes illness sound so #cool and trendy
What is it with all these people referring to their serious disease as "Hep C?" I'm pretty sure that if I ever contracted a potentially fatal disease I would not feel compelled to give it a trendy, peppy-sounding nickname. But these characters do it ALL THE FREAKING TIME- they have "A-Fib" and "Hep C" and other conditions they describe in a way to make the viewer sound almost jealous. Gee, I wish I was cool enough to contract one of these life-threatening illnesses! But woe is me, my liver is just too damned healthy! I feel so left out!
I suppose I could try sharing needles or having some tattoo work done in a dirty parlor somewhere- that's the source of approximately 60% of all "Hep C" cases. I should stop complaining until I've at least put the effort in, right?
