Questions About Treatment & Side Effects / Bah...

Well.  The last couple weeks have been hard.  Been under a lot of stress.  A lot of shit going on.  I won't go into detail. 

During it all I think I threw away an unopened bottle of Triumeq.  I'm going to be without meds for about 10 days. 

Worst case I'll fill the gap with some Complera I had left over.   

Merry Christmas

Just getting into the spirit of the season...
Thank you all for your input!  Please keep it coming, all of your experiences are helpful to me as well as any future readers of this thread in the same situation.  :)

I had a blood draw yesterday for the gene test for Triumeq...  I thought it was going to be just a little finger prick but they took four tubes out of me!  :o  Maybe I should have asked what this test cost before agreeing to it!  LOL

AIDS Activism / Re: This is a game about the realities of living with HIV

I never wanted this on the forum but since Mrmojorisin wanted to discuss it I canít just take it down, I also know that no one has suggested that I do so  . I will move this thread to the Aids activism forum .

And to Jeff and Betty, as both of you have posted here...

This poster is not living with HIV, and is not here in support of a loved one that is.

That is all. I'm going to head back to the shadows, crap like this makes my skin crawl worse than a candida bloom.

Well intentioned maybe, and only the first iteration of work in progress probably. Nevertheless, this feels trivialized.

We're not here to beta-test someones homework project.
You will be happy again, in time, of course, but it will happen, and so will your son.  You have just experienced a great shock and some days will be better than others, but it does get better.  Once you get a sense of CD4 count and Viral Load, you, your son, and your doctor will make a plan.  There's no good reason to believe that modern medicine won't be able to stop the infection right in its tracks indefinitely.  Thank goodness his infection was discovered so early. 

Once the plan forward is determine, you can continue to focus on his college plans and go on living your lives.  He will be fine.
