stopping the clock!!!!!
Aug 12, 2003

I recently asked my doctor about my life expectency now that I an positive. He said its kind of like a clock; once the meds are started then the clock stopps ticking and you will have a normal life span. Now would you agree or is that just B.s I want to thank you for your services, you provide more to the positive world than you probably realize. K.S84

Response from Dr. Young

I think that this is a reasonable analogy... indeed, for persons who have immune dysfunction, the clock actually might reverse. BY

please guide me
