In Response to OMG
Aug 16, 2006

My t-cell count was 17 when I started medications. I had lost around 44lbs and kept dirreah most of the time. I was wasting away. But when I found out I was HIV, I started medications immediately, Thank God no side effects. From day one they never botherd me. One year later in fact one year today, I have gained all of the 44lbs back. I not longer have any dirreah, my Doctor assures me I am doing great. My Viral Load is undet. and my t-cell count has went up slowly from 17-122. If you looked at me you would never guess I have Aids. So do not be afraid to take your meds, they will help you trust me. I would be dead today had I not started taking them, but Thanks to God and the work done on HIV, I am alive, well, and happy. HIV means life changes but does not end.
