Hello and thanks for posting.
It's never too late to engage in care or start treatment for HIV. Medications can and are be very well tolerated, and restore health and can permit a very high quality of life, love and family.
TheBody.com has an excellent Resource Center for people thinking about starting HIV treatment- I hope that this might help answer some of your additional questions. Know that it's important to identify a safe and experienced HIV medical care setting. If we can help in the process, don't hesitate to write back.
Be well, BY
