Hi Guys,

This site really helped me pull together after being diagnosed poz. I spent hours here reading articles and chatting. After beginning treatment, I developed a Sustiva rash, I dropped the Atripla and began Truvada, Raetaz, and Norvir. Once I was on meds and had adjusted to the a healthier llifestyle. I really needed to stop fretting about this and focus on my hobbies, work and my partner. I was able to think of other things and not be focused so heavily on my hiv status..

After beginning meds in August, my doctor order bloodwork in late September. Yesterday, I received the results. My CD4 count has gone from 330 to 664. My viral load has dropped from 58,000 to 80. Needless to say, I am pleasantly surprised. Three people at the clinic checked the results. It's a little remarkable.

Anyway, I'm feeling really good and enjoying life. I just wanted to say hi in case there is anyone out there who needs to talk.

Life isn't over.
