Numbers after first mth on meds
« on: November 17, 2010, 05:13:12 PM »
OK Sooo when I started meds I was at a VL of 34400 and a CD4 of 574 After one long ass month of starting meds (Atripla) I'm now VL 520 and a CD4 of 621  :) Just want to thank everyone here for the support I've received.

To those who think this is the end of the word, I am living proof that this is far from it! I hope you all the "old dogs" understand just how important the words they say to us "newbies" really are. I anticipate being on here for sometime now and plan to start a trailing tab of my labs... just how do I do that though?. LOL

That is AWSOME and only after one month!!!!  Great to hear.

Love your attitude, especially today after reading your earlier posts.  It can be very daunting at the beginning and having a support structure does help a lot and it looks like you've found that.

Keep up the good work on adherence.

just joining to chorus for the lurkers benefit, take your meds! i'll let my numbers speak for themselves... happy thanksgiving
I set into a downward spiral
Caught an illness that was literally viral
I heard some words of wisdom the other day
And they went in one ear and out the other one

I awoke from this beatific binge
With prismatic eyes, now lite is tinged
With all the vapors that the vile humans brew
Shining through the blight of you
