I believe getting tested was a huge mistake for me. It ruined my life and 10 years on I'm not coping with it. I was OK for a few years and I forgot about it, didn't have any checkups and never told my GP. I found the GPs to be rather useless, one practice told me to find another doctor as they didn't treat 'my type'. I live in a regional area with poor access to health services and now that I have gotten sick it's a bitch. I can't find anyone to help me manage my health, I can go to the clinic and have blood tests but they don't offer anything more than meds. If I complain about the side effects all they say is all medicines have side effects. After 18 months on meds my viral load is still detectable and all they say is wait and see. They never seem to want to change my meds. They seem pretty incompetent to me after reading info in these forums and elsewhere. So be prepared for a tough and miserable life. Sorry for being so negative but it helps to vent. My depression is off the charts, anti depressants do nothing and I don't have the cash for ECT.

Life's a bitch and then you die, but only if you're lucky!
