i cant believe it's been 6yrs
      09/29/11 11:04 PM

6yrs have flown by in the blink of an eye. i went to see my ID today for my lab results & i actually shoved my Dr & told him to "SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!" my CD4 is at 937, ive maintained my UD status since starting my meds 6yrs ago, my % is at 54... all of my numbers are exactly perfect.. nothing, not one of them is off by even a little bit. when i was diagnosed 6yrs ago & told i needed to start meds immediately all i could see was the long scary road ahead of me. CD4 235, 86000, 25%. wow. it hasnt been easy, or a whole lot of fun, but i feel fantastic. ive gained 50lbs, found a boyfriend, been vaccinated against every damn thing they could throw at me, battled pneumonia... my last hurdle this point is - the dentist. sadly, Atripla is saving my life, but destroying my teeth. but if i can kick some cootie butt, i can brave the dentist & his evil drill. for everyone newly diagnosed, scared, worried, uncertain... know that all you have to do is hang on thru the bumpy part of the ride. it gets easier... really, it does. accept your status, learn to manage it.. not let it define you & you're well on your way to a happy mind, happy heart & happy numbers.
