ps: btw , how can i add one of those charts to my profile ;) ?
personally I would have waited one more test before dropping the bactrim; but then again I was on it for 10 yrs before I could drop it, so I waited 4-6 extra tests (about 4 months) that year to make sure I really was staying above 200. Having had the horrible PCP, I was willing to deal with any side effects to not go to the hospital with THAT again. Almost dying is really just no fun at all. ;) :D

as to the chart, I graph mine out here at aidsmeds (http://www.aidsmeds.com/graphs/). Then take a screen shot, crop it, shrink it, upload to photobucket.com and then include it in my signature line. Holler if you any help with understanding/doing that and I'll try to help out  ;)
