Again, greetings after a long silence
« on: June 10, 2022, 08:06:35 am »
Hi again after a long silence.

I am really a bad communicator - coming and going and a long silence in between.
Eight years have passed since I got diagnosed and became a member of this forum.  Many people helped and supported me in this place when I was suffering a very difficult time, especially the first three/four years.  Thank you again.   Now I am in good health, not having had even a minor cold for the past years and so far, I have been safe from COVID-19.   Today my doctor told me that I am starting new medication; Genvoya, only one tablet a day.   At the time of my diagnosis, I lost all hope and was just thinking my life was over.   Now I cannot believe I am living such an active life.  I sleep only five hours and then am wide-awake being anxious to do many things during the day.
Greetings to everyone  who remembers me.

                 ojo.         My dear friend Daniel, it’s always nice to hear from you, I have told you before that I remember when you became a member of this community and it makes me feel so happy you are living your life again, tho, I envy you because you’re taking one pill a day, good for you and remember that hope dies last when you have a good attitude. You are a warrior…hugs

Hi, again,

Thank you, Jim and thank you, TONNY 2.
It has been a long journey for me and it will be.  Now I know that "science and technology" never stops developing but it just goes on!
