My liver had failed once before and I had all the symptoms that it was going again, glowing yellow eyes, orange skin
, swollen liver. I was 29 years old and had a two-year-old son at home who depended on me to take care of him while my husband was at work. Because, you see we were the perfect family -- I was a housewife and he worked and we went to church on Sunday and I got drunk every day all day, but I thought no one knew that. I couldn't go to treatment, my family needed me at home.
