Happy new Year 2020
« on: January 02, 2020, 08:44:01 am »
Hi guys, it's been a while since I update myself. Thought this can be a good post to wish every brave souls here a Happy New Year and thank you all for walking with me through this journey ever since I joined poz 2 years ago.

Just right after Christmas I had a bad case of acute appendicitis. Luckily for my case, I evaded the operation cause I felt better after they given me antibiotics. So 3 days later I'm discharged from the hospital i spent the new year quietly with my partner. Just hope that wouldn't make a drop in my cd4 as I just had a blip from 400 to 290 :(

Oh by the way, my partner is well aware of my status and she seems es to be OK with it. Perhaps she has been a care taker so she has some medical knowledge etc. I didn't disclose my status to her instead she  found my pill box one night and googled about it. I thought she was odd that night cause she was asking loads of questions about me being honest or am i hiding anything from her, then she jump right into the topic and asked if I'm a positive! I cried and spilled every words in my mind which I had been rehearsing in my mind all these time. She hugged me when I'm done, telling me it's alright, nothings gonna change and forgiving me for not telling her any earlier.

Yeap, so that's it for my 2019. I'm glad this community has so much to give and helped me alot when I just started my arvs. Best wishes to all of you, and stay healthy!

Jackmydin, there is still a lot of things for living, as you mentioned somethings bad or sickness, but we have to consider how many good moments have had along this process too, thats important for understand and be better humans. I understand when you say you partner discovered your meds and asked about your life, it happened similiar on me 3 years ago and he stands, believes and loves me yet. These are things we always have to thank.
Have a nice life and make it nice for some others man!
