horrific physical side effects
      06/03/02 02:00 PM

There is no reason for anyone to have to deal with "horrific physical side effects" If you are experiencing side effects that demish your quality of life, hold your doctor accountable and require them to help you find methods to deal with this.

That is what I have done with my doctor, in the beginning he was not happy with my constant complaining and told me that I was HIV positive and that I had to deal with the side effects that came with it. After much work I have finally got to a point with him where he is no working with me to solve any side effects that I have.

Just because you have HIV and are taking meds does not mean that your quality of life should be any less then someone who's negative and not taking meds. There are work arounds for every side effect. It's just easier sometimes to suffer through them them to hold the medical professions "balls" to the grindstone to solve them.

Don't compromise and don't suffer, "horrific physical side effects" should not be in your vocabulary.

Good Luck
