Thanks for your post.
I'd consider you to be very, very fortunate to be a long-term non-progressor. A very small percentage of HIV-infected individuals fall into this category. Some do so because of mutations in the CCR5 HIV co-receptor, others for unexplained reasons.
Call it mind (or body)-over-HIV.
Best of health to you. BY
