Is anyone here opting NOT to take meds?
      10/08/12 01:57 AM

I am very newly diagnosed and the pressure to be on medication immediately is intense. I understand this is the new protocol but if someone's t-cell count is over 500 and their viral load is very low, what's the rush to get on meds?

I know many HIV positive people whose doctors just watched their t-cells closely until they dipped below 400 or 500 before advising medication.

Is anyone out there choosing not to go on meds yet? I feel very alone and unsupported with my decision thus far.
