Starting meds tonight
      #191922 - 05/17/06 08:39 PM

Hola people! Even though I'm not a "regular" and only check in on these boards on occasion, I find it extremely comforting and therapeutic to log on every now and then...so I just want to say that I'm starting meds tonight! Am going with the clinical trial for treatment-naive people that I mentioned in previous posts. Was kind of scared yesterday but optimistic today and as Eric told me a while back, "it's time." I'm gonna do the adherence thing and take good care of myself to the best of my ability. Thanks for all of your support. I've gained so much strength and perspective from the people on this board...

Love,
M

Thanks! I'm so glad for the support here and from my family and that I have a good team of docs and clinical trial people committed to keeping me well. Am feeling very blessed.

I echo what Eric Said! Good for you! Take control. And there is nothing wrong with doing the trial. I've gotten some of the closest monitoring ever by being in a trial.

I remember my first night... I took the meds and then laid there for an hour wondering when something would happen.... It was like... Did they really give me anything?

I wish you the best as you start down this path.
