You go gurl! ;)

Looking at your dates and numbers is almost exactly like mine. Weird, huh? Maybe I will hear that news next time.

My most recent CD4 result is 204 (12%), representing a small decrease (my history is in my signature). Am I right in thinking this is nothing to worry about?

BM -- I think it's nothing to get worried about at this point.  For many folks, CD4s can take some time to start rising once they're on effective HAART.  But they will start to rise over time as long as you stay undetectable.

Are you on PCP prophylaxis?

Hi Peter, thanks for your response. I'm on dapsone for PCP prophylaxis (co-trimoxazole gave me leukopenia). I was hoping I'd be able to stop it soon - mainly to reduce my pill burden - but I imagine my doctor will want to proceed cautiously as I've had PCP in the past.
