Maybe this is ignorant but the whole AIDS classification doesn't make sense to me as with the meds we have now, unless you are resistant, it seems the meds will always bring your CD4 count up. With that being said, i don't think anyone should have to deal with the classificaiton of AIDS. That seems like a term sadly for earlier times when meds such as those we have today weren't available. I don't know, I just don't think the medical community should put that added stress of having that term. Maybe I'm just on rant but it's just added stress that isn't good for anyone especially those of us with HIV. My numbers are fine but I told my doctor if that day comes, I don't want any other classification than HIV. I told him put whatever you want in your records I don't care but don't tell me I have AIDS as i think it's just BS. The only way I will accept that term is if my body completely resists all the many medications that are available to me which I think and hope would be very rare. Don't let anyone put a term on you or put you in a category that you don't agree with. i see the whole doctor thing as a team and I don't allow my doctor to push me around. I'm in charge of my body and my care, he just gives me advice and his view on things and I decide whether or not I want to take it. Anyways sorry for the rant but don't let the doctor make you feel bad and if he does find another doctor.
