This is the first day since I was diagnosed that I now believe that I have a chance at a full life.... My CD count has gone beyond 200 ... I was worried for that my low starting point would keep me from reaching that goal.....  Also my doctor stopped all my meds for 2 days to determine why my white blood cells when through the floor... Ever since then I have been worried about resistant..... Well I have been < 75 since June 2008 and now <48..... So I guess my worries are over as far as that go...
Boy it really is starting to seem to me is that if you are adherent to your drug regimen you can have every expectation of success.... I cant stress enough how important that is .....

Good luck to all...

Congratulations!  It feels so good to be undetectable and above 200.  I remember how excited I was (and how much I couldn't wait to get off of Bactrim)

Hope things keep getting better and better.
