All-
2day I went in for another round of my labs. I will not get my results til the 27th of this month. Overall, I am feeling fine. I go to the gym, function as normal as I can, and no other medical problems whatsoever. I also am excited cuz I am starting to get back into school in a few wks...on the 27th. I just want to graduate, get a Bachelor's degree and get on w/ my life. School is such a bore and it is taking forever!!

Rob,

Good luck i know your results will be outstanding!!
Can you explain why you have to wait so long for your results? I gave blood on Monday and get my results Thursday...am i missing something? (only CD4 and VL being tested)

Take Care

Definitely going in the right direction 2D.

Good for you on the school thing.  Don't let this virus define you.

Optimistic:
when I found out, I nearly dropped out of school.....but somehow I managed to get through it though my grades suffered tremendously.  I am applying for graduate school now, go figure.  ;D

Anyway, I hope to hear good news from your lab test.

All-
It usually takes a month, give or take, for me to get my results of any of my labs. I guess it is so spaced is cuz I no longer have to make as frequent as hospital visits as I have been when initially infected, which is a good thing. The best part is is that my doc has came to the conclusion, based upon my results that I am cut off of my PCP prevention medicine, Dapsone. I no longer have to get that refilled, yay!
Overall I feel better; I wake up early in the morning for work, schedule myself for OT, have punishing workouts at the gym, and feel relaxed at the end of the day. I have not eaten what I have been told to eat...but I am working on that. I still eat very meagerly. I just told my doc of how excited I am that I will finally get back to school.
