my dr said everything is normal..NORMAL?!!
      02/02/06 06:31 PM

Nothing has been "normal" for me since 8/23/05 @ 9:30am when i was diagnosed. My HIV was discovered by accident. I ended up in the hospital after running a fever of 103 for 3 days & stomache cramps like I had never known. The fever persisted @ 103 - 104 for the next 2 weeks. I was taking 3000ml of Motrin a day to keep the fever down & 2 different kinds of antibiotics. i live in Florida, so 3 hurricanes in a row made for tricky doctor appointments & a lot of cancellations. It turned out that I had chlamydia & I was pregnant. The infection abcessed my fetus & the infection spread from my uterus, fallopian tubes, bladder, kidney & urinary tract & stomach lining. I was not in good shape. The doctor had suspected ovarian cancer from the ultrasounds, but I begged him to run EVERY SINGLE bloodtest in the world on my... I wasn't going to go back to the hospital for anything. Well, I went in to his office a week later all ready to hear I had cancer. NOPE. "I don't know how to tell you this, you're HIV+" And then I fell off the chair, hyperventilated & cried, no sobbed hysterically. My bestfiend was there & she held me and just kept telling me it was going to be ok. Long story short, my first set of labs came back with my CD4 280 & my VL 86,000. My doctor recommended I start meds (SUSTIVA & TRUVADA) it took me 2 weeks to take the prescription to the pharmacy. I was about to begin the rest of my life on meds. That was 10/3/05. 2nd labs 10/31 CD4 330 & VL undetectable. My 3rd set of labs 2/16/06 VL undetectable & my CD4 is 651! My doctor told me he'll see me in 12 weeks, get out of his office because his office is for sick people. He told me to go live my life... but be careful & take my meds! He said that there is nothing wrong with me & I am perfectly healthy (minor cold, but I'm all over it now) So what happens now?? Just keep taking my meds and living? How long will this last? I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop, so to speak. I feel so very blessed that my #'s are the way they are... but is it just a fluke?
