From 5 to 103!
« on: October 26, 2012, 12:38:33 PM »
Hey all!

As some of you may remember I joined here in April of this year when I was dx'd. At the time I had only 5 tcells and over 200k viral load! :o wow!

But now after about six months I am happy to report that my cd4s are at 103 and my viral load 23! Basically undetecable! In about six months, my tcells jumped to nearly 100! Not bad! Here's to hoping to keep going up.

And I just want to say thank you to everyone who took the time out of their way to talk to me and make me feel better! I really do appreciate you all!

Thats great news! It took me years to climb from 12 to 225, so keep on keeping on :)

Of course you didn't get sick. The flu vaccine prevents flu. It doesn't cause it.

Nice numbers. Hope next time you experience an even greater improvement. :)
