Thank you so much for getting back to me. Now I understand the correlation between the drug use low immunity and co-infection. I am not a drug user and my first set of labs showed my immunity is in great working order (yay).
I agree with knowledge is power and 1 way to fight this disease. I for one am a great believer in touch but I still use universal precautions on everyone and give hugs when needed. I have to say since this has happened to me I can understand the psychological factors that go along with this diagnosis because I have had every emotion. But most of all I know we all need support and understanding infected or not. As human beings we need touch to heal and to feel love.
I have to say that is one of my fears if infected that I will never have that intimate touch or love again. Its hard enough meeting a straight honest man when your not infected. add in the positive factor I can see how these women get depressed!
Oh and I will be soo careful with the needle"pricks"

Could you show me dear?
Something I've not seen.
Something infinitely interesting
