So how are you doing now?

I am on the same medication regime that you are on (Norvir, Truvada, and Preszista). It works wonders for me. No side effects. Keeps my CD4 above 700 - 1000+.

You should unplug your online access to your lab results.   After reading this entire thread it's clear you can't digest that data without it causing you anxiety.  Especially if a reading of 11.7 when normal is 11 concerns you.

i am affraid of pneumonia too cause i smoke too. i have to quit i know but it won t happen over the night cause i was heavy smoker.

I just wanted to tell you how I quit smoking in case it helps.  I switched to using an electronic cigarette because I could then control how much nicotine I was getting.  I would buy a lower amount of nicotine each time I got a new bottle of juice until I went from 30 mg down to 3 mg.  then I just stopped using the e-cig completely and haven't smoked since.  No problems with withdrawal at all. If you want to quit smoking, you may want to try this.  Plus the e-cig is probably much better for you to be using than inhaling smoke. I'm no doctor, just my opinion.  Good luck!  Try not to worry so much, and enjoy time with friends and family!
