decreasing Ratio follow up

Feb 17, 2002

Dear Readers,

Somebody rightfully said that stress is in itself a disease. my story is very simple....Had protected sex...Got the flu..Got some rashes that went away in a couple of hours (Trust me the rashes fitetd the description to the T) went hysterical about this disease...had the PCR, WB, elisa all negative...did not believe it...had cd4/cd8...the ratio kept going down. Then met a doctor who said stress is the cause of all this...Went on a anti depressants and just got my CD4/CD8 back right now and guess what the ratio climbed up. Today I still have some symptoms but I can definitely attribute them all to stress. I hope everybody is hearing what I am saying that please dont be stupid and idiot and compulsive like me otherwise you shall end up like me which is not worth it. If the PCR comes negative then you are negative if the elisa comes negative then you are negative. Its my turn for the woohooooo and I have complete faith that everyone who thinks they have this disease just thinks that they have this disease. "Believe in Yourself"
