Take care of the rest of your body! We are human guinea pigs having taken these powerful medications year after year. I see many people around me (who successfully maneuvered life with HIV) now getting sick with cardiac, liver or kidney complications. For the first time since the PIs (protease inhibitors) came out, people I know are increasingly concerned about their future. All we can do is live in as healthy a way as possible: good diet, minimal alcohol, active exercise and balanced emotions.

Ask David your questions at the Substance Use and HIV and Mental Health and HIV forums. You can also read his blog, Riding the Tiger: Life Lessons From an HIV-Positive Therapist.
