Re: Tested HIV/AIDS positive

Hi,
I was recently diagnosed as positive as well, likely from a surgery in the 1980's. I was symptom free, with the exception of a "slightly" low platelet count this whole time, more than 20 years and felt pretty good! Last fall I started getting floaters more than usual. Turned out to be a partially detached retina due to the virus.
What I have read on this board has made me feel more comfortable in a very stressful and anxious time. My cd4 was 20 but load was 10000. I started Atripla about a month ago and now awaiting my first results. Just trying to stay positive.

Re: Tested HIV/AIDS positive

Musoke, my thoughts and prayers are with you. I, too, am HIV+ and know the mental anguish you are going through. Know that this horrible disease is now considered a manageable chronic illness that can be controlled with the use of many different types of medications, some you only take one pill once a day with minimal, if any, side effects.

Start drug therapy immediately and stay with it. Never miss a dose as it will allow the virus to become resistant to the drug. Keep in mind it takes some time for the body to get used to the drugs so although you may be feeling side effects or ill as you use them, these feelings will subside.

Take care and God Bless you!

Re: Tested HIV/AIDS positive

There is a Dr. Robert H. Keller, who is a pioneering immunologist, devoted his life's work to researching immune disorders and anti-oxidant strategies. The impact he has had on HIV's patients is really making a difference in their quality of life.

This latest research ads hope for individual's dealing with HIV to live a more normal life.

God Bless!
