Remember that this is a lifetime commitment. It is not like taking a course of antibiotics and then you're done. You should take them as they are prescribed in order to stay alive and have the best quality of life possible. Although you may feel good and look good now, stopping the medication without your health care provider's input is a dangerous idea. If you have side effects, remember they will usually resolve over a period of two to four weeks. Try to hang in there so that you don't become a hot mess.

Wed., May. 22, 2013 at 4:43 pm EDT You get better because you haven't completed Gods' plan for your life. You have the opportunity to help so many people HIV positive or not. Don't waste time sulking you have survived over 20 years with this disease. Encourage, teach, help others, be a witness. You have HIV but don't make it just about you Get busy spread the word.
Praying for You.

Experience from the ones who have to execute it each and every day, who live it not just see it come across in the office.
