Well...going pretty well!
« on: December 14, 2009, 10:19:30 AM »
Ok, so I am about two months into meds.  Started with a VL of 330,000 and a CD4 of about 460.  Today I am at a VL of 800 and CD4 of 724.  I think it's going pretty well.  Not in love with that damn Novir, but doc says after a few months of Undetectable, we will discuss moving to Isentress.  Should be available as a once a day with Truvada by then.  Rumor has it those trials are going very well.

Today was the first day I missed my scheduled med time by 60 minutes....guess I am being too nuts, but I am pretty pissed off at myself. 

All in all, side effects have been manageable....mostly gastric stuff.  Occasional diarrhea and bloaty.

Be well all!

It could have been worse....  you could have missed it by 61 minutes.  Besides I think your lying and trying to be overly dramatic, you probably missed it by 57 minutes and rounded up.

It's no big deal.  You're doing good and it will be fine....

I thought about you the other day...  Regan Hoffman has a new blog up.  I would like to invite you to read it....  or you could just scroll to the very bottom like I did and pay attention to the last line. :D

  OK my directions were a bit half assed, but if you go to the Kenneth Cole thingy that she has in her blog then click on it she proceeds to her story and some of the things she is currently involved with.  It's at the very bottom of this.....
