I was first diagnosed in September 1984 in Atlanta, Georgia by the Red Cross using a prototype of the ELISA test. I didn't start treatment until 1992 when I started on AZT. In 2004, I was diagnosed with my first OI, PCP. After a massive prostate infection in 2005, my prostate shutdown and since then I have had reduced sexual function. I have slight impairment of mental function caused by HIV that occasionally results in periods of minor depression.

There aren't a lot of us who survive from the time prior to the onset of HAART in 1993, but we are here nevertheless. Have faith that all will be well; the odds are that since you have survived this long you will live a normal life span.

Peace, friend.
