I too had a dream
« on: March 09, 2012, 05:15:20 PM »
Not long ago, my doctor took me off Sustiva (over 10 years running) because for the first time since 1998, I had a viral load.  I now take Prezista, Norvir and Truvada.  For about 3 months there was Atripla added and removed.

So, Sustiva is long out of my regimen but one night, I was dreaming...

In my dream, I was in The Men's Store of Macy's on Union Square (I go there frequently), Gloria Steinem and Alice B. Toklas were working the cash register on the 5th floor and Ms. Steinem said, "Michael, you can't afford Art or Clothes" she then cut up my Macy's card.

What brought this on?  So glad you asked... Since 1998, when I started on Sustiva, I had an undetectable VL, then 125,000, three months later and a geno test, I report another jump to 275,000 in three months.  Later this month, I have labs again and hope to be undetectable.
 ;D  Have the best day
Michael

That's hilarious!  Tell that feminist b*tch it doesn't work that way for boys - we must have beautiful things.

Say hello to those gorgeous Palms for me next time and hoping you will be as healthy as they are soon enough.

Oddly enough, during the years I lived on Waikiki, it was common for people to leave their homes (with beautiful palm trees), to come home to find their palms were gone.  If you really like the palms in Union Square, you can take them home as a souvenir.  ;D  Have the best day

Hi Betty,

Nice to see you again.  It has been a year without computer for me and those lovely people who deal in plastic w/high interest rates saw fit for me to have a new computer.  God invented credit for people like me  8)  Have the best day

That's LOW, ripping a plant out of someone's yard!
Some stole my 5 year old potted yucca a few years ago. That was sad. They steal little pots of flowers every year, but it seems inconsequential. Ripping out a tree is another story!
I heard there was a good black market in stolen mature cacti in the southwest. 

If I were a tree, and I were ripped out of the ground and carted away from someone who loved me, I might be pretty pissed off, too!  I had two yucca and the brother who wasn't stolen died within a year.

Hi Dennis,

I am guilty on both charges.  I have been in a "happy place" for a few years and possibly the happiest of my entire life, even before HIV.   :)  Have the best day
Michael
