 Hi Lis, I still remember you.  It seems like most of us have moved on...

i remember you. Isn't what it once was here. Kinda tame, rarely visit anymore. I really miss the souls that can't visit anymore. What I wouldn't give to hear from Matty again.

Hey @Lis

I'm a long time lurker and just recently created an account on the forum. 

Why do you say, "just barely"?  Is the virus multi resistant?  Are you not taking meds for other reasons?

Diagnosed - May 1995 / Lowest T-Cells 170 - Nov 1995 / Highest Viral Load - Over 5 million - Nov 1995 / Started on HIV Meds - January 1996 / Various "cocktails" changed to mitigate side effects which included diarrhea, nightmares, bloating, lipodystrophy and neuropathy / Meds changed several to make them easier to take.  Examples: fewer pills per day, coordinating pills that need to be taken with or without food. Current Meds: Descovy, Tivicay / Viral Level <20
T Cells 350

Lis has been living with HIV since 1986; the treatments during that time were dreadful and toxic, but kept her around none the less.  Many of the members who lived during that era have come to pass, thus making being a long term survivor less enjoyable in some regards. 

Btw, glad you joined the forums.  Wish you would have joined us when this place was popping.  It really was a great support forum.

Hi Lis :-*  I remember you, so glad to hear yo are still with us. I don't come in much any more, and like Skeebo I miss the old crew, some are still around, just not posting and some we have lost. :'(

I can only hope you have more good days than bad sweet lady.
