Regaining balance

In May/June I spent 9 days in the hospital with PCP and was diagnosed with AIDS. It was a shock but maybe not a surprise - surprise only in that it must have been 16 years ago that I was infected and I though I was safe.

At this time I am doing well physically, vl in the low hundreds and steadily going down, CD4 still very low, but I am reminded this will take time. In general I feel good other than side effects of the antibiotics I am taking prophylactically. I feel very fortunate that I needed have family support, excellent health insurance and job, and was otherwise very healthy before the PCP. So in most ways things are as good as they could be.

However, I am an obsessor. I have spent hours reading this site and others about HIV. I am also very impatient with myself and 3.5 months of this seems like forever.

So I was wondering from others' experiences, when were you able to shift from having HIV being the central focus of life to just another part of daily life?

Thanks
