Hard to believe today I hit my two year mark.  Change is inevitable, but weather it's for the better or the worse is a matter of perspective.  To those of us who have been in the trenches since the start thank you.  There is no substitute for experiance.  For me at least hearing from those who came before was a much needed source of strength when I needed it most.  Most of all I can say I'm still on the upside of the daisys.  As long as your still in the game of life you havnt lost yet.  To everyone Happy New Year!

Hi, your numbers look very good overall. Being a “youngster” in the community, I’m curious what treatments you had/have and how compliant you are. Best Matt

Started on descovy (emtricibane/tenofovir alafenamide) and descovy (dolutgravir).   The company played shenanigans with our insurance that prompted a new ID.  She switched me to bictarvy 6 months ago.  I've been on ARVs  just under two years and can count on one hand the doses I was late (more than an hour late) or missed.  DX forced a major shift in my medical thinking.  Previously I was known for ignoring my health and having general disregard for personal safety.  The lattice work of scars attest to that.  I genuinely do appreciate advice from the long haul vets.

Thank you. I agree, hearing how others manage such new situation has become at least for me key to learn how I deal with hiv. Thanks for sharing.
