I recently found out I'm positive
      03/29/00 12:25 PM


I'm 23yrs old and I got my positive result back on September 17th, 1998. A day that will forever be burned into my memory. I made the decision to begin meds after I got back the results of my first count, my Viral load 35,800 and Cd4 was 330. I have a great doctor/Infectious disease expert from Stanford University here in No. Californiia and he reccomended the Crixivan/Zerit/Epivir combo. After one month my viral load went to 200 and my t-cells climbed to 454. What I am wondering is how relieved should I be and can I expect these numbers to fluctuate while on medication. Also if I miss a dose or don't take them every eight hours on the dot will i develop resistance? I would apreciate any thoughts you might have. My partner has tested negative (an amazing relief!) and I would also like to hear from those with similar situations and how it effected/affected your relationship and what yiu changed or did to cope with the situation. Any replys would be apreciated greatly. Thanks.

Brian P.
