Response from Dr. Frascino


You should be working closely with your HIV specialist physician. He is (or at least should be) best equipped to advise you regarding disability benefits and other services that may be beneficial to you.

Refusing to take your Atripla certainly won't help your situation! You sound extremely frustrated at the moment. Counseling and antidepressant medications may well revive your spirits and your will not only to survive but also to thrive. Don't give up now! Things can ( and will) get better.
