a little isolated overseas
      11/24/06 01:54 AM

Hi I have been reading this site and checking the posts for about a year. It has been the only connection I have to other HIV positive people. Thank you all. I am working an overseas contract and living in a country where it is illegal for aliens to be hiv pos. I have to fly to another country every time I need to get tests done, live in some fear of my employer and /or the government finding out and deporting me. Its been bearable but frustrating since I know there are so many people here who are struggling with it and would love to connect with people who are experiencing the challenges of being hiv positive.

I was diagnosed a year ago at the time of major seroconversion illness (had to take 2 months sick leave). All is well now but I struggle to cope with the shocker of getting my test results alone. Body seemed to attack the virus well in the beginning viral load dropped from the millions to 1800 and CD climbed, % was smack in the mid range of normal. But These have been changing every test I have. CD has dropped to 450 (thats a 200 drop in 9 months) and viral load is up at 65,000 and for the first time the % was below normal. This is a bit scary for me. It looks like meds will be on the cards soon.

If anyone wants to write back and just say hi, that would be much appreciated. Looking for people to talk to.

love to you all
