I know I haven't said a word...
« on: September 22, 2006, 12:38:20 PM »
But I am making a lot of changes now. I decided to move out from my parents house. So i rented a small apartment, like 100 blocks away from them. I live in this small place now. I need to feel I am not an invalid that cannot do or live its own life anymore... Of course, learning to cook has been AN EXPERIENCE, but here I am , making my own life, trying to pay my own bills.

Just that boyz and girlz!!!!About my medicines? I'll go to see my doctor today, and find out when is he going to order me some more tests (specially for my liver)... And guess what? I was talking these 3 pills of 200 mgs a night of Efavirenz, and my plan now covers the one-600mg-pill!!!! :D.  However, they changed it from generic to Stocrin...I hope i do not get any crazy side effects again...

I have been reading the forums...Just did not feel like writing a lot...

I am 38 years old, have my own apartment but still live with my parents... :P They donīt know about my HIV so I pass my meds (both Sustiva and Truvada) to the same empty bottle of multivitamins. I never forget to include the desecant contained in the Truvada bottle to keep them in perfect condition.
I can also pass you some nice recipes.

I was extra gay and cooked my first meal at the age of 14.  It was 4 courses and I translated all the recipes from French and converted all the measurements from the metric system.  OK, that's both gay AND geeky! :)
