Out of Meds
Aug 7, 2011
Thank you so very much for your expertise in this area of care. I have written repeatedly with no reponse. I came across you and breathed a sigh of relief. My question since you've answered the rest is, why are they coming up with more drugs for long term survivors since this disease is manageable? My partner is on his last combo, poz 25 years never sick. Myself pox 18 yrs, never sick. They scientists know, that there are millions living with this successfully and we need more medications. Why isn't more being done. It is heartbreaking to come this far, and hit a dead end road. Thank you so very much for you blog and your time, you are awesome.
