           ojo.              Hi crusbarcelona for replying…well, I’m still here after 27 years of living with AIDS (five years, and hiv 22 years. Now, after taking so many medications, I’m having problems with bone density, I had my first broken foot bone, it’s healing now, but, it’s one more pain to deal with Jessie my neuropathy and Bo be eye’s pains, I guess I will reset my brain’s pain control system, hehe, because I don’t take pain’s meds, at least until the pain is unbearable, especially, my eye’s pain, it’s awfull, I’m still debating whether n getting rid of my blind eye. It’s so difficult for me to decide get mutilated, anyway, time will tell…thanks all for reading my story, I hope, it makes some of the newly diagnosed members, realize how lucky they are, after getting the awful dx, that they won’t go through what some of us, LTS, are going through now…just take your “vitamins” everyday, and try, no, TAKE BACK CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE, that your “vitamin me” will take care of the virus and also think that, in some parts of the world, they don’t have the life saving treatments we have…good luck. There is a great life, after and hiv diagnosis, just be positive now that you are positive…hugs

          ojo.          Hi Julio, thanks for reading my thread and I appreciate your reply…I’m glad that my story gives you hope and makes you smile, reading your reply also made my day. Since I found these forums, I knew I needed to share my story because I was suppose to die two more years after my AIDS dx and, even though I lived with aids for five more years after my dx, I can’t, still, believe I’m here, that’s why I chose the name of the thread, if there was hope for me, there is hope for all of us, especially nowadys, miracle drugs, it takes just one pill a day, discipline in taking your med and a good attitude, you are back in control of your life…I will read your story and, if you need a shoulder to lean on once in a while, I have two, shoulders. Comprende?…good luck and, remember that, la esperanza muere al último…hugs
