Re: New (Ex Husband recently diagnosed)

i have had hiv for 13 years..
it does effect me mentally a little
i have found
it is a bit harder for me to concentrate on something difficult.

my memory seems to be fine to this point.
some of other study tests (btw i have been thru very many hiv studies)
i have done are tests of the brain function and memory
so i know for sure it is a effect of hiv
alot might depend how far it the hiv has progressed
and also on the individual person itself.

a good sign for him is he is still working and functioning
if he is still strong enough for that, hopefully his body
is strong enough to rebound and get better.

i won't sugar coat it
i have known of some people who didn't respond at all to the meds...
but they seemed to be a bit sicker and further along
then what you say your ex is going thru
as they couldn't function at all.
i will keep my fingers crossed for you it will all work out.
