Congratulations! Improving your skill set and physical health are always great things. :) It's great that you're reconnecting to family.

And 17 yrs? That's great too! It can certainly be an eye-opener to get this far along and think back to the first thoughts and opinions when we were diagnosed.

Good luck on your Import/Export class!

Awesome outlook on life, and your numbers are also awesome. As someone who is newly diagnosed and struggling with it. Can I ask you what your initial VL and CD4 count were in 2006 when you were first diagnosed.

To be honest I don't know why I waited so long to do these courses. in 2015 when I wanted to do it the previous company, I worked for said there was no budget for me to upskill so I left it, then in 2020 our department was bought by a Romania Company again I was told the company will not pay so I paid for it myself, if I want to study, I have to invest in my own skills.

I don't regret doing it as it will give me leverage to look for a better paying job.

 Hugs

Ron

Never too late to learn new skills and gain some qualifications. Similar to yourself I was working for a company that would have paid for it and I wanted but didn't and a few years later did but had to pay out of my own pocket. That's life.

Anyhow, wishing you the best and hopefully it will lead to better opportunities

Towel:
What an inspiring thread. It's so cool that you continue to invest in yourself and find new goals to work towards. After so many years, what is your stance on being single?

Yes you may ask.
just when I started Truvada and Stocrin my CD4 was 350 and VL was 3000. My specialist thought it good to start early HIV Treatment and that was 16 years ago
