Loa111:
Welcome & sorry to hear you have HIV. It is a terrible shock, even these days when the treatment is excellent .I was shocked when I found out I'd HIV, but a couple of weeks later when I found out I'd a CD4 of 22 and AIDS, I was terrified! Luckily everyone on this forum helped me & explained to me not to worry about the AIDs classication at all, that the meds will help me recover, and they did.

Actually none of my ID Docs every used the term "AIDS" to me, they call is "Advanced HIV", which sounds much nicer.

Anyway, the good news for you, and you may not feel this yet, but you will eventually...you will eventually kind of forget that you have HIV, you take a pill (2 in my case) daily, go to the Docs a few times a year, get bloods done, a quick discussion of test results, and that's it! It will become so normal to you, that you won't think of it much at all. I often aside from popping the pills, forget that I have HIV, and even when I do think of it, it means nothing to me, since the medication is working nicely!

I hope that helps. Keep coming back to this forums as it is a great place to find encouragement, especially in earlier days.
