GREETINGS from Japan (Again)
« on: July 05, 2021, 06:02:00 am »
Again, Long time No writing.

It is more than half a year since I last got connected to this site.   Seven years have passed since I got diagnosed having PCP and my CD4 was only 61.   I am between 400 and 500 and basically undetected.   
I work hard everyday, enjoy my free time, and have a very positive attitude.   The Olympics will be held in our capital city against the wishes of many of us;  the corona issue has been serious in big cities like Tokyo and Osaka.   I hope everyone I know is doing well.

Seven years have passed since I got diagnosed
wow!! seven years?!? Hard to believe it's been that long. Congratulations. :)

I work hard everyday, enjoy my free time, and have a very positive attitude.
a great attitude for good physical, mental and financial health!

The Olympics will be held in our capital city against the wishes of many of us;  the corona issue has been serious in big cities like Tokyo and Osaka.
I can certainly understand that. Here in South Carolina just over a third of our population has been fully vaccinated, so I'm worried about what our situation will be at the end of summer after all the people have come to visit our beaches.

I hope everyone I know is doing well.
Coming up on 4 years married, and 3 years in the home we bought. I've nearly finished all the house/property projects on my "Five year plan" so I'm very ahead of schedule. Definitely doing well and now half a year until I turn 60. WooHoo!

Welcome back!

Time flies, huh? In my case it's been nearly 5 years since I was diagnosed. I'm glad you're undetectable.

I hope you are able to enjoy the Olympic games, as unfortunately it's out of your hands whether they will take place in Japan.
