dr visits every 6 months....
      12/22/11 10:44 PM

my ID told me on my visit monday that i no longer need to see him every 3 months. my initial reaction was to clap & wiggle around doing a slightly weird happy dance while sitting on the table... but as the days have gone by i just kinda feel like my special blankie has been ripped from me. he explained that i have maintained an UD status for over 6yrs, my CD4 hasnt dropped below 800 in over 2yrs, my % is amazing... so he's agreeing with the new CDC guidelines for only needing to visit every 6 months. he said anything that happens in 6 month will not be anthing different or worse than in 3 months. hes been an amazing dr, hes been upfront, honest & very supportive - as well as all the staff. i guess i just feel nervous & kind of scared all over again... like im having the "but what ifs" - he told me if I CHOOSE to come every 3 months, thats on me.. but he really sees no problem at all with seeing me every 6 months.

Anyone else have thoughts... or recently started test driving the every 6 months visit?
