News from Milker
« on: December 05, 2008, 01:59:48 PM »
Hello all,

I've been away from those forums for a while now and I know some of you wanted to get some news.

Basically I've been living my life with HIV like my life without HIV. I've come out being positive to everyone I meet and all my friends, and I haven't lost any friend or haven't been treated as different, so I'm very happy about this.

Relationships have come and gone, but this is unfortunately part of a normal life.

As you can see below my VL and CD4 numbers got really bad last month, but the magic of Atripla completely reversed the problem in just 28 days. I still cannot believe those new numbers, it is incredible. I am also very fortunate that I've had zero side effects from the medication, so I feel very lucky about this too, I even thought it was not working because I didn't get any nausea, no weird dreams, nothing.

I haven't really connected on here a lot, so I'm not sure who's who anymore. I guess I felt at one point that I gave all the support I could to people that needed them and it was time for me to move on.

I am also a volunteer for a local organization called Mama's Kitchen who deliver meals for people with AIDS who cannot leave their home because they are too sick.

Although I do not connect on here often I think about you all often, so to all my friends that have been supporting me during the last too years and to those who read me for the first time I wish you a great life. We all need a positive attitude (no pun intended); it worked for me and I hope it works for everyone of you.

Love,

Milker.

PS: yes, i'm still a slut and a porn addict. That hasn't changed either  :o

I've often wondered why I didn't see you around here too much anymore, and it's good to hear that things are going well now.

Happy Holidays

Hey Milker,

Well Howdy there! Glad you stopped by, that things are going well for you and that Atripla has been such a breeze for you.

Now, don't be such a stranger. Stop by once in a while and say hi. As Nick said, AMG will be in Boston this August, so think about it.

HUGS,

Mark

Hiya Milker,
It is so nice to hear from you. I do think of you, and have wondered where you were.
Nice to see that you have decided to free yourself, and come out to everyone. It's actually quite liberating isn't it?
While I'm glad to see that you are doing so well, I do still miss you. You should stop by more often.
Kisses to you old friend. :-*

Hi milker...

oh it's so good to hear from you and the good news about the atripla.  Yeah, this HAART business really kicks ass and it's even better when the side effects are just not there.

Working at the kitchen can be rewarding.  It's good to hear it.  By the way Moon Dog sends her best.
