Its only going to get worst.  While the Midwest and northeast is still in their cold snap we are getting pollen counts in the 100's of thousands ( I might be exaggerating, nah i think its!  They stopped counting and just say very high)

 Hi GIO ,
                 hope all is well .
            I always worry too .  Even after all these years .
      My CD-4's bounce once in a while . Always makes me nervous .
   I remain <50 vl. so that is nice .

     The trees here in the Ozarks are really putting out massive pollen right now , everything is green .
       but the trees LOL's

     My head is hurting today from leaving the windows open .

metekrop just a little disappointed that my numbers are not higher but there could be a million reasons as to why they are not.  And since i have allergies i am just chalking it up to that.  My doc is not concerned since he is more concerned with keeping me undetectable, which it is :) ...  I guess i have number envy This is only my second set of numbers since starting Atripla.

I think you know you have no reason to be concerned.  Draw blood for your blood work in the morning, at lunch and at dinner and you probably are going to have a different CD4 count.  As I am sure you have read on the forums somewhere, you can't assume anything from one set of numbers, you need to see a trend.  Don't fret about how quickly they are going up as compared to what you want them to be or how quickly some other person's  numbers responded after starting meds.  The important thing is that they are improving and that you are undetectable.
