« on: October 29, 2009, 05:15:16 PM »
i guess that im feeling a little sorry for myself aand i know there are many here a hell of a lot worse off than me but still i feel like crap theses days!!

I am on Katetra and Truvada for about a year, i was doing really well, undectable viral load and cd4 of 350 ish and going up, no side effects at all and things were going great!!  But over the last 2 weeks a hollow is appearing on my face near my temple, i dont feel anything but i see it and it has really got me down!!  i hate it, evertime i look in the mirrow its all i see....

anyway i said it too a few people that know and they say its noting and you wouldnt notice it, but i do evertime!!  i dunno what to do, i could go to my ID doctor as all i have to do is phone and they will see me in the clinic!!!  but i dont want to appear to be making a fuss over noting!!

i dunno im just down about it and afraid its gona get worse and its the start of lipo and soon ill have hiv written all over me, if that happends i dont know what ill do

sorry if there is no question here but i just need to post how i feel, thanks for reading

never surrender
