Questions About Treatment & Side Effects / Re: Bah...

So I emailed my doctor that I lost my meds.  20 minutes later I got a call from the pharmacist.  They had already called my insurance company to see if they would authorize an early refill.   They won't (Bastards).

So we calculated the earliest day I can refill and it turns out I will only be without for five days.  She told me not to take the complera to just stop my meds for five days. 

I'm a bit freaked out about stopping for five days.  She said triumeq has a low level of resistance so I should be ok.  Ugh.

Thanks bug....I am already in counseling.  Just have never talked about it with my therapist. I have been avoiding this for a while....I happen to be in a remote location at a resort and one of the employees made it clear that I would be at his room tonight for.......

Its my new normal....I need to mentally come to terms with it.  Right now I'm so afraid of passing it on to someone is the big issue I think.  I couldn't live with myself knowing I infected someone.  Here I thought I was a strong indivigual lately not so much.

Hello, Widow.

It's good to know you are under the care of a doctor. That's one of your best tools for staying healthy.

You might also check and see what support is available from any AIDS service organizations in your area. Getting accustomed to living with HIV is not something to do alone. You will also find a lot of support and informed knowledge available here from members, so bring up anything that's on your mind or ask questions you may have.

Gradually you're going to see your life is going on. So hang in and come here as often as you want to.

Is there any way to have these threads show the newest comment at the beginning instead of page 13?
yes! Click on the word USER over in the left hand menu. then click "Look and Layout" in the "Modify Profile" section of the middle column of menus. then in the 3rd column, tick the box marked "Show most recent posts at the top"

Just keep in mind that anytime anyone says "see above" or "^^" what it now means is "see below" or "VV"

I've had mine set this way since the beginning and love it. ;)
Living With HIV / Re: The Results Are IN! and they are bitter sweet....

Hi, I recently had a HRA examination as part of a trial and the results came back showing AIN grade 1. They also said I tested negative for the cancer causing HPV viruses, think they said 11, 16, 18. Been recommended to have the HPV vaccine against them. Will be monitored and checked annually, told not to worry. If I don't have the cancer causing HPV viruses what damage can the other HPV viruses do?
