2 years update.
« on: September 05, 2019, 01:27:45 am »
An update of my treatment. (Looking for a space to vent)
After every six months I feel sad cos I had to undergo few tests which are required to check my well being. But I hate to see my doctor and Medical staff. Cos in India it's still a taboo still in medical people. However with time I started ignoring their ugly faces :-) and just keep on doing my work only. But this is is only time I start thinking about my condition. Other days I am just fine. But I feel nervous till I don't get my results. I hope this feeling too will go one day and I don't have to go through this.
So yesterday 2 years results came.
Cd4 ~950, UD
But my cholesterol and other lipids are very high. But tensed. Any advices.

I am just over 3 years in and still get butterflies in my stomach till I see "Not detected" written on the result sheet. Then I forget about it for 6 months. I don't think I will change that. Testing is not such a big thing in Thailand, no dirty looks.

For the cholesterol, diet and exercise would be the first option. Mine gets high on occasions, I just increase my workout intensity and try to eat well. It usually drops down to normal or close to it.
