Hi Al

Please let me know if we can change our vote. I voted 0 with <200. I had wasting, diarreah, lots of congestion and extreme weakness at 42 CD4

The extreme weakness landed me in the emergency room on August 31, 2005, where they gave me intravenous fluids

I have had a few OI's . Went through wasting syndrome back throughtout 2003,( 30 pound weight drop) Shingles, PN, Bacterial pneumonia., Candiasis, mild molluscum.


These conditions occurred when I had my aids diagnosis, 16-t-cells) had nothing to do with food contamination of poor hygeine.

I had candida in the mouth and PCP. But I had lots of the shits and wasting. But I guess that would make two diagnosed OIs.
