One Year Later.... healthier and happier. new
      #276666 - 06/12/14 10:16 PM

So one year ago, I tested positive blood HIV test after having all my oral tests came back negative. Well when the results came back on my counts which were cd4=5 and viral load=416,000. My life changed. I cleaned my self up. No more drugs. I was going to live....

The reason I am posting here that others know that you can do it. Follow your doctor's orders be compliant no matter how bad that you may feel. I am now undetectable and my cd4 is 233. I know the scared and angry. I am now happy and if you need to talk please email me... I am here to give you hope and support. I love you and I understand.

Much love,
Richie

Awesome Richie! HIV can be a catalyst for change, the key is accepting it, understanding it and making it work for you! I left alcohol behind, became happier, enthusiastic and excited about life. Much the same way your life is unfolding.

One can choose to wallow in the dark depths of depsair life hands you or jump up and run. Together we all need to help each other ... those that are doing it on their own and those that need help ... we can all be on this journey together!

Continued success Richie!
