SUCK ON THIS
« on: March 16, 2011, 04:01:13 PM »
Latest labs:  cd4 = 1705; cd4% = 48.7%; vl = <20
 ;D

PS: I'm now eating a double quarter pounder w/cheese.  Later I will indulge in a box of chocolate truffles and a glass of Dutch Meadows 100% grassfed raw unpasteurized milk, certified organic... fresh from the farms of Lancaster County.

I also pranced around looking like this today.  I also think my Sculptra cheeks are sinking back in again -- time for a touch up!  And after only three months?  Good thing it's mostly free for me.

It's red because I was just diagnosed with Rosacea -- they didn't have my prescription so they have to order it and I'll get it on Friday.  Oh, and I have a bit of dermatitis on my scalp.  Just goes to show that those 1700 cd4s don't amount to crap now do they?

And shut up about my large nose -- I can't help being a wildly rich half-Jew.

I can donate 700 t-cells if you'd like.  That would still leave me more than enough.

Seriously though, that's an obscenely high number and I doubt it will stay that high, but I have had +1,000 consistently now for three years.  Also, in five more months I'll have my five year anniversary of finally getting my viral load undetectable after 18 years of it never being so.  Hence my gloating.

edit: in the past two weeks I also had two friends pass away so I needed some cheerful news :(

Yes darling, and I have pants to match the jacket -- plus the ensemble has only been worn maybe three times.  I also have a burgundy Nehru jacket/pants ensemble by McQueen, and a REALLY fierce black nylon raincoat and a gold skull necklace:

OK... still celebrating  8)



(that chocolate cupcake was really amazing!)

extra credit: Ketoconazole shampoo (dermatitis), Metrogel (for rosacea) and Alclometasone Dipropionate cream (dermatitis)... got to fuss with this crap for a two week period.  There was discussion in another thread about what to use for such HIV-ish skin issues.  I've used these products before both here in Philly and in NYC so it's rather standard.

Ah, those are the ~10,000 vinyl records that I had to take out of storage at my drug addict best friend's house when he was foreclosed on.  I'm planning on halving the collection and getting rid of ~5,000 but can you imagine how much work that is going through all of  this -- I live in (I think) a 600 sq. ft one bedroom apartment, and right now half the dining room and a third of the living room is full of vinyl records.  None in the bedroom though, because my bedroom is basically a massive walk-in closet with a queen size bed at one end, that's how many clothes, shoes, and accessories I own.

I'm also in the midst of doing some re-plastering work but because I'm Queen Procrastinator it will surely take an entire year.  Mess... but I don't pester my landlord to do the repairs because he's only raised my rent once $30 during the five years I've been in here.  Oh, and after the plastering I'm going to re-paint the whole thing.  It's just too much work and I hate dealing with stuff like this -- which is why I need a handyman husband type.  I can do the cooking and pick out the furniture and be in control of gestalt styling issues.  However I detest cleaning and laundry so he better have money to hire me a fucking maid, because this booty don't come cheap.

I thought you only owned three boxes of possessions?  This seems so out of character for you.  And how, pray tell, do you plan on transporting 5,000 vinyl records.  Do you realize that's about 30 boxes and really, really heavy?

Amazing numbers, congratulations!

I wonder how common rosacea is amongst HIVers?  Mine has receded somewhat since meds, but still flares up now and then.  Didn't have it pre-poz.

Dermatitis is, obviously, very common.  I'm not sure that rosacea is any more common than the general population, though I've read conflicting things on that topic -- I'd still go more with genetic predisposition with rosacea.  There is often overlap though, which probably makes for some misdiagnosis:

Evidently eosinophilic folliculitis is associated with HIV, and I've not even heard of that one.  My HIV specialist is also my GP, so we're just trying this treatment as a start.  If it doesn't work then I'll go to a proper dermatologist.
