(Srsly, what was with that sniffling??)
That's such good news!
Pamela Anderson has been living with Hepatitis C for over ten years, and now she's finally ready to open up about her treatment process!
The Baywatch star hadn't talked too much about her diagnosis over the years, but now that things are taking a positive turn, she's ready to speak up about the disease, saying:
"I'm very fortunate that I've had Hep C for about 16 years. 16 years ago that was [presented to me] as a death sentence. I think it really worked on my self esteem. Even though I may have looked confident on the outside, I think it really was a dark cloud that lingered over me."
"I could be Hep C free within the month."
She gushed about the medication, and explains that she hasn't had any negative experiences with it so far:
"I don't have any liver damage and I don't have any side effects. I'm living my life the way I want to but it could have eventually have caused me some problems and so it was a real blessing that I was able to get the medicine. I'm half way there."
The blonde beauty actually has a positive outlook toward her illness now:
"I'm really excited. I feel good. I feel so blessed."
"I actually just look in the mirror everyday and I feel like I'm looking younger and younger and I feel like I'm getting those 20 years back."
Good for you, girl! We're glad you're keeping your spirits up, and we really hope this new drug regimen works out!
