I know I need to take care of myself and continue with meds...AND...I am dr thinks I may be clinically depressed and has given me another drug to take...right now I am taking Truvada, Sustiva, paxil and trazadone. I am tired of taking medicine everyday - I will continue to take meds, work out, eat well, etc. etc. I just want to say "I want a break!" I want to feel normal again and not think about HIV. In the big picture - life is going well - good job, insurance, supportive family, boyfriend that cares.... I know all about gratitude being important and doing what it takes to take care of me....needed to vent and then move on. Take good care all.

Focus on your potential.

Let me tell you how I get through it...I don't think about why I take the meds. I know that as I get older I will need to take different meds. So I look at my meds as part of getting older.

"I want to feel normal again and not think about HIV" quote Sun

When you get to the place in your thinking that you can say that being HIV positive is normal for you then you can relax some. Its not going away, you will continue to be HIV positive forever. The best response is to get used to saying..." HI my name is Sun, and I'm HIV positve."
