"I'm a 31-year-old transsexual woman living in rural Arkansas with my boyfriend of five years. I enjoy dancing and music, and I really like photography. I am disabled and on SSI (Supplemental Security Income). Right now I'm just learning to live with HIV."
Well, I had my doctor appointment with the infectious disease specialist.
I loved the whole team. They were great. Very caring and sympathetic.
I had a ton of blood drawn, over 13 vials worth. They tested for everything under the sun.
I ended up having to wait quite a while to get my results back. Several weeks actually.
The results were good though:
My doctor does want to start me on meds. I'm not sure how I feel about that, but I'm going to move forward and do what they say.
Overall, my counts and everything are A LOT better than I thought they would be. I'm very thankful for that.
My next appointment with him is March 2nd. I guess we will start the meds then.
I'll add more soon,
