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."
She's tried different medications in the past, but now Pam is moving on to a new process that's FDA-approved! These new drugs work to destroy the virus, and she says the outcome could be amazing!
"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!
