If she has a brother, let me know! Your post might be better served either in the off topic or living with forums. Unless of course she is good on nutrition. Sadly Santa didn't bring me any 8" action figures for christmas to play with, so I know your pain!

Believe me, I feel your pain. Not sure about the LTPN, I've seen it used in here from time to time but does not understand it.

Hey Queen -

FYI -

LTNP     
   
Long-Term Non-Progressor. Used to describe a small subset of HIV-positive people who are asymptomatic for decades. An LTNP doesn't need antiretrovirals; his or her body manages to control the virus on it's own.

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=LTNP&defid=1043976

(Wow, the things I've learned in the past few months!)

Happy New Year
And I wished for guidance, and I wished for peace
I could see the lightning; somewhere in the east
And I wished for affection, and I wished for calm
As I lay there - Nervous in the light of dawn

Here is one definition from The Body website:

"In general, the definition includes those people who have been infected for 10 years or longer, have maintained a CD4 count > 500 and an undetectable viral load (or at least < 500/ml) in the absence of any HIV treatment."
