Season to Self-Smile....
« on: December 21, 2015, 04:37:56 PM »
Just received my 2nd of twice yearly test results and once a year physical.

Now, 1 month away from 31 years HIV+, remain Undetectable, 605 CD4, 35%, LDL & HDL normal ranges, liver and kidneys fine and other tests OK as well.

I am so grateful!

Best to Everyone and Happy Holidays!

a great report, OT.  Congrats!

Hope things continue to go as well with your health.

Celebrate these good days; because when you come upon BAD days, you realize that you weren't aware the GOOD days were GOOD days at the time you were having them!    Does that make any sense?

HUGS, Alan

Thanks for the well wishes everyone!

And Alan, I know exactly what you mean by GOOD and BAD days. I am going through a rough patch now as I was let go from my main job 6 months ago. Been doing a few short term assignments in the interim.

As someone else noted on the Boards here, office politics can be extremely challenging if very negative and highly dysfunctional.  Several former staff, however, have been quite supportive and reached out to me with job leads. I let them know how much I appreciate it. I am sending applications and getting a few interviews with the hope that I land another full time job soon before my finances dwindle down too far given my continuing expenses (food, health, shelter, and transportation).

The irony is that physically I feel wonderful and I am getting good sleep at night.

Although my good spirits are being challenged, my mental agility is sharp as ever.  I guess that means I have moved into "high gear survivor mode". 

I guess I will put on my grandfather's Haitian Headdress and stir a few potions to add to my survivor's arsenal.

Take care,

OT
