Getting to Undetectable: People Living With HIV Share Their Stories

April 12, 2013


Reggie Smith

Reggie Smith

Atlanta, Ga.; Diagnosed in 1984

After being sick in 2005, I have been taking the antiretroviral combination that has kept my virus at undetectable levels, and allowed me to enjoy really good health. With God's grace, and enough desire to live well, I have been able to adhere pretty well to this regimen. My oldest granddaughter was 2 years old at the time. Now she is 9, and I have two other granddaughters, a grandson, and a set of boy/girl twins! I play softball and golf, take flying lessons, I am of service to my community, and I am blessed to share my experience and hope with you.

Read Reggie's full story of coping with being tired of taking HIV meds.
