My Turn For the Happy Dance!!!
      #203176 - 08/11/06 01:42 AM

I've been pretty quiet on the boards for a while now. Several of you know of the struggle I had starting meds. Well, I'm happy to report that about 4 weeks ago the side effects pretty much became minimal. I'm back to working more than I probably should and even doing a bit of traveling. A cruise is in the works for September. And then the best news is from my latest labs. CD4 at 546 and 23% with a VL of <50. So happy dance time. I'm so ready to just get on with my life. And oh... I've even had a date <smile>.

David...Fantastic News!!! When we are on the rocky road, it seems never ending, but that how our "self" works, it tends to exagerate things for us. This rocky road you have been on , is no comparison to the smooth road, that you now are able to see ahead. I'm very proud of you. Maintain this renewed spirit you have built within yourself, and the road will get even smoother my friend.....even when you hit the bumps*

was a very pleasant surprise to login this morning, and see this posting, Ive often wondered how you were doing. Keep up the good work! Good Luck & May God continue to Bless You*

hey thats great news,and kind of incouraging to me,as i too have been having big problems with meds for some time now,i think because of all the changes.a cruise sounds cool,i hope one day to cruise in alaska,surprising for me because i cant swim and watched titanic 3 times,the only problem is to get my wife to agree to do it.o and im looking for a baby sitter for 6 kids too,that in itself may be the biggest problem i may face,im glad things are working the way you want them to.enjoy,and dont be a stranger,congrats on your labs,its encouraging to think this may happen to me,im really wanting to get back to work again,i miss the grand a week thing,i think my wife and kids miss that part of me too,thanks for the encouraging news,take care

Hey David! That's the best news I've heard in a long time. Just think, minimal side effects, working hard, traveling, dating (is THAT the "cruising" you were talking about...lol), and good numbers! It's like you're back to your old self again.

Welcome back! And if you stay away this long again, keep in mind that you're now strong enough for us to beat up on you for disappearing without feeling guilty. :)

-Gary

Thanks Faith! I agree it is great news. And looking like Jessica Simpson...ok... you go for that one... It's just good to feel like I've gotten a bit of my own life back.
