It is a good evening!
« on: October 28, 2012, 08:09:36 PM »
Well I figured since I have known I was HIV+ since August and found out that I am full blown at this point I do not qualify for just tested +.  For the longest time I have 2 sores on my arm that healed but not totally, still had a tiny scab  or never did scar.  I was not even paying attention to them until a little bit ago I looked down and they are now almost gone.  I can only relate this to the Complera (almost 2 weeks on it now) and the Bactrim DS is doing what they are suppose to do.  In fact I am feeling better than I have in a long time.

Glad to hear everything is going well.  Especially glad to hear you're feeling better.  How are you numbers looking?

Take care and best wishes.

Thanks for the well wishes.  At this point I have an appt to see the dr on 11-19 and I am sure it will be another blood draw to see how the numbers are looking.  Kinda seems right that the little things that count and can get you excited.
