Again, Long time No Message: Nine years have passed!
« on: February 13, 2023, 09:21:58 am »
Hi, Jim and All,

I should stop and greet you before you forget me.   Nine years have passed since I got diagnosed with PCP, with CD4 account only 61.   After being in hospital for a month, I came to this forum and MANY of you helped me as I was feeling just depressed, losing all hope.  I recovered from my depression COMPLETELY and now I take only one pill a day.  I feel healthier than I was before being diagnosed.   I would like to take this opportunity to thank you.  Hope this example of mine will encourage those who were recently diagnosed and are having a difficult time at this time.

I'm glad you are doing well and the best you have been.  That sure does feel good and getting over the depression I'm sure helps as well.  I'm so glad you popped back in and if you want to get on our monthly group call hit us up.  Be fun to say Hi in virtual reality. 

Enjoy the rest of your week
