am turning 31 next month. i was diagnosed positive on my 30th birthday. with treatment, ive managed to reach an undetectable status with a cd4 at 990. i worked and continue to work hard at that but its trying. i am addicted to speed. i try to stay off it as much as i can but im not always successful. well now, i have hepatitis C and i dont know how to feel or behave. i have a harvard grad hiv specialist as my doctor, my saint my very patient friend but he seems to want to coddle my worries and id like it real. 100% can someone speak with me who doesnt know the meaning of pretense? thanks...much love...KJView Thread
stay away from needles unless your health depends on it...and for christs sake dont share them. too late for me to heed that advice. dying is part of living. love yourself to death the right way.View Thread
