Since I started this thread, just thought I would give an update. I am a year in now and not started meds yet. Going to get a 2nd opinion soon. My current Dr says the decision is mine on when to start(Given my personality, I would rather the dr make that decision...I am a tad indecisive in many facets of my life :))

Even tho I dont post much, I am on here a lot and appreciate all the info everyone posts not only to this thread but in general.

Will post again after I see the other dr.

Hi Zorro, thanks for the update.

Your numbers are fantastic! I know I wouldn't start meds with numbers like that. There's a very good chance that you are a long-term non-progressor. I'd like to suggest that you have a read over at the Zephyr Foundation. http://www.zephyrfoundation.org/

Good luck in whatever you decide.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts
