Questions About Treatment & Side Effects / Re: Numbness in the head

As far as I can read here and there, this is not uncommon

Usually fades out in a few weeks
1 year is not a few weeks...

So you may want to address this matter as it can create a favorable terrain for depression

EFV is usual suspect

    Hi  InIt ,
                     Nice to meet you .

      I have a habit of letting people in my circle know that I have  AIDS .
     No reason to try and hide anything , it makes things easier .
      Oddly my male cousins  have unfriended me because  of the fact they are                       un-willing or afraid to explain to their friends .  I think   it is bull shit !
     After so many years my comfort zone is more important than others comfort
    zones . I'm sure people talk behind my back . I do not care .
     I hope it all turns out well for you  :)

Love the suggestions! I have a weekly pill reminder. I like the idea of always carrying an extra pill with me. I am going to try and build up a stockpile so I have an extra supply. 

It will also help when we move to Florida!

Thank you!
No. They offered but my copay is $100 and gilead already takes care of that.

We all have depressive moments, it's part of dealing with HIV. Sometimes our minds just keep working and working wothout giving us a rest. Look for help, in my case, i'm thinking seriously in attending a pshycologist. You're not alone man, you'll be fine.

Thanks for all your comments, i think one way to help ourselves is by sharing thoughts, feelings, etc. At this time, only my two older brothers know about my condition, the oldest is a doctor and both are very supportive and loving.
I'm glad that i found this forum, and i hope to keep posting in here. Thanks again.
