Hi,

Have you been started on HART yet?  So you know which meds you are taking, can you list them here.  What Opportunistic infections do you have right now?

Any time your viral load is exceptionally low leaves you open to Opportunistic Infections, especially CD4s under 100 or even 200.  There are meds available for people with exceptionally low CD4 count.  I know you feel just awful but understand until just recently you were very, very sick...and here's something to note....even while your body is recovering and getting stonger there will be times when you don't feel so good, just be strong and see it through.  You have got to take your meds, eat as much as you can and when you can....your body is gonna need the calories.

Think of your immune system as like the military, healthy people have anywhere from 9000-12000 troops, you were down to 30, HIV, a cold virus...whatever could do whatever they wanted and your body could do nothing to stop it, and what was worse is your own military was generating troops for the bad buys.  But that's all being stopped now.

Your cd4s are still quite low so you can get sick a little easier,
I had the same for a while but after your cd4s get higher
this will settle , not that you might not get sick like any other person.
So take your antibiotics and if it doesn't go well go to your doctor.
I somehow would like to reassure you because I think all this fear
and panic isn't really good for you either. You're on the up since you've
been taking your meds. Be a little patient and be well. Joe.

I think you confuse by thinking of 'opportunistic infection'
as a kind of separate disease. You have a weakened body and
so you get sick more easily. There is more 'opportunity' (chance/risk)
to get sick. So if you dont feel well/get sick, see a doctor and follow his guidelines
, you have done that, so far so good, and if
you doubt the doctor go and get a second opinion.

(edited; I'm tired, I spell not well. :-\)

I think you will be ok. I ve been taking meds for 11 years,
living in Bkk for 13. If I can do it, so can you.
At first it's very confusing and scary, for your inner peace try to see it this way:
the body suffers but the mind doesn't have to.
