Am I Infected? / Re: Should I take PEP?

Thanks Joe, you have helped put my mind to rest(while I take the point that there is still risk the fact it is low makes me feel better)
Just to add that undetectable does not mean you dont have the virus...just means the diagnostic system used to quantify the virus in a precise quantity of your blood sample might have a lower sensitivity limit that's higher than the amount of copies of the virus in that quantity of your blood sample.
In Memoriam / Re: Our wonderful David (Miss P) has left us.
« Last post by Joe K on Yesterday at 07:06:14 PM »
It has taken me this long to even consider a reply to this news.  A part of me wants to scream at David on how suicide is the most selfish act in the world.  How could he do that to all of us who cared for him?  Then I thought...

How horrid must the world have seemed to him?... so horrid that he took his own life.  Having lived my life with mental illness, I already knew the answer.  I have walked very close to the line that David chose to cross and I can empathize with the absolute despair and the need to simply make the pain stop.

David, I am so sorry that the darkness overcame you and while I respect your decision as being yours alone, I mourn the result of that decision.

For years, you were the bell-weather of this forum.  Just seeing a post from "Miss P." meant that all was right with the world, at least for that day.  You are possibly the most unique man, that I never got the pleasure of meeting in person.  I'm very angry with you and soon I will forgive myself for that anger... as you did nothing wrong.

Yet another loss of a piece of my heart.

Hello Lioness
Welcome to the forums.
Yes, its very possible to be undetectable and not on drugs. I was one of those people for a good over 5 years before my VL started gradually rising, and the max it ever got was about 200. My CD 4 has also been consistently high since diagnosis even without treatment.
I only recently went on treatment because I am pregnant, but once I have the baby I will see with my doctors if I should continue treatment or stop. Prior to treatment my cd4 was over 700 and my vl was just about 200. I was diagnosed in 2007.

I hope that answers your question.
