just wondering how many who have been hiv poz undetectable aided by antivirals longer than 10 years that have noticed a slew of things suddenly physically falling apart, even though you've done everything you should be doing, including regular medication and blood work? like virtually overnight?
Just joining this app and feel like it’s my safe place. I was born HIV positive sucks but it wasn’t a chose for me. Been in foster care since birth you can say cause once my family found out they didn’t want me. Mom was already locked up so she couldn’t take me she was fighting her drug addiction. I just found my family after 26 years. Nobody seems like they can answer my questions. I asked my mom why me I had to go years with people telling me nobody’s ever going to want a person with hiv. That I should kill myself. Yeah I thought about it lucky there where people who where amazing to me and told me it wasn’t my fault there was nothing I could do about it cause I was born with it but to overcome and help other children. Now look at me a Fience and four beautiful children that are healthy. Never let anything stop you from becoming something great your past does not define who you become. Love yourself
I started experiencing night sweats again and I'm not sure if I should be concerned about it.
One thing Im noticing is that being in denial about HIV or AIDS is dangerous. When we get in denial about our status, we tend to not be adherent to our treatments and stay up on our health. A lot of times I just want to forget my diagnosis and go back to life before all this…but I know I can’t. I’m trying to learn to be stronger and keep pushing myself to accept this. Anybody else having it hard accepting their diagnosis?
Anyone know their cd4 count? Mine is around 600 last time I checked. My best friend was less than 200 when she had pneumonia but she started a new medication and now she’s undetectable.
I know since having hiv me 46 it's hard to be in a serious relationship since me having hiv I only been serious with to guys and when I told them I had hiv and I'm undetectable I really had to educate them on what undetectable mean
