Update on ME
« on: May 21, 2007, 06:21:21 PM »
OK everyone, long time no chat.  Been VERY busy with Louie and my websites.  We temporarily closed the booth at the flea market down since the market closed.  Nothing really changed with louie.

As most of you know I started on meds in February this year.  In January before going on meds t-cells were 215, Viral Load 10,000 24%

One month after being on meds, March 26'th labs  T-cells 305 !!!  Viral Load UNDETECTABLE!!  YEAH!

Truvada and Viramune.  No side effects so keeping this as they are.  Had labs drawn today, should find out how things are going in a week or so.  Back to my 3 month visits.  Not bad if I must say so myself after being POZ for 19 yrs.

I've also been taking Fish Oil supplement, blood pressure is on average 115/75 to 130/85  much better than the 150's 160's / 90's range.  Been meditating a lot more lately too and trying to take time for me.  Though it's hard, Louie wants me around him all the time when I'm not at work.

Cholesterol is 160, doc said that's a good range.  Liver, Kidney and other functions are normal.

Just thought I'd share a bit of my good news.

Hi
Glad you posted. !! You seem to be in good health but how how are you holding up otherwise??

I'm holding up ok I guess.  I have my moments where all I want to do is cry becaue I hate seeing Louie this way.  He's still on the tpn 16 hrs a day and it seems that if it's not one thing it's another.  Just about every week or every other week he just gets so run down and has told me quite a few times that he's getting tired.

That really breaks my heart.  Trying to take time for me but it's hard to do.  Missing the company of another man, next month will be 4 years since intimacy with another man  :(

Oh well, glad we still kept all the hundreds of videos we had for rent at our store from a few years ago.

Reminds me of a joke:

This man goes into the doctors office and asks the doctor why his penis is orange.
The doctor runs tests and says to come back in a week.  The guy goes back to the doctors office and doc says everything is negative and wonders what the guy could be dong.  So he asks him if he's been doing anything different lately.

The guy says, nope, just eating Cheetos and watching porn

ROFLMAO

Hugs,

Hey Mike,

Glad the meds are working so well for you. The meditation is also helpful, at least for me.

Now, stop being stingy and pass the Cheetos.  ;)

HUGS,

Mark
