Questions About Treatment & Side Effects / Re: anyone else lapse on their medication and get sick when back on meds?« Last post by rexfuzz on Today at 01:46:42 AM »
I had all my numbers checked at the hospital on Sunday. They said everything looked great. still undetectable and great CD4s. I've actually been really fortunate to never have bad numbers. Not even when we first caught it. I'm not sure what an OI is or IRIS. is it possible for me to become drug resistant without my numbers ever going out of wack?

Kentucky repubs are trying to get this passed here, too.

...Second, I met my HIV doctor, and she is so NICE! I cried like a baby everytime I opened my mouth in her office, but she just let me (even though, she was so extremely busy)...I, also got my numbers, I have a CD4 of 64 with a VL of 45000. I guess I do have AIDS...Hopefully , after 6 weeks, I will be see better numbers. But, for now, just being able to breath is enough! My doctor had reassured me that I wont suddeny drop dead...And, I truly and deeply am indebted...
Most of us have been where you are. I also cried at my doctor's office then sat numbly while she gave me the same assurances that you were given. Best thing is that they are true. After six weeks my VL was undetectable and I started about where you are. My CD4 made a better than expected jump which boosted my morale. I now understand that my CD4 is a steady upwards climb measured over time. Believe that it gets better. Your physical and mental health will improve. Believe, believe, believe....

The series just premiered on Logo after Ru Paul's Drag Race for the blokes in America.
So far, it's kinda boring
