Six months undetectable!
« on: June 02, 2019, 08:03:57 am »
Hello again,

I just had my first doctor visit after being undetectable for the first time and it seems everything is fine! 6 months of Triumeq, undetectable, my numbers are all great and I feel great. I have been having sexually active (even sometimes without condom, but always informing) and nobody has called me yet with some bad news so I guess that's good  ::)

I also managed to get more pill bottles at my hospital after complaining a lot about it and I even managed to get them to stop mailing my parent's home  ;D

I feel healthy and happy, I am eating better, going to the gym every day getting a nice bod, started working at a good company and I've never felt better than now (still with a pikachu face tho, I think I'll have to wait a long time for that one to be treated... Another positive ANA but the other doctor is still doing tests...).

Anyway, I got used to taking the pills (I never missed one through all this time!) and I don't think HIV is having any impact in my life besides the occasional visit at the hospital :)
