Just an update it's been a while :) one year anniv passed
« on: April 30, 2012, 10:28:39 AM »
Well after my lat reading my cd4 reading in just 31 days my cd4s jumped to 228 so that's a total of 53 points in 45 days it feels so good that that unlucky streak of staying stagnant is over! My med change greatly improved my life I feel no side effects. My viral load was <20 also. April 15 was my year I'd never dream of being this well and adjusted. Thanks for all the other bloggers who encourage me and others
