How Long Have You Been Living With HIV/AIDS?

How Long Have You Been Living With HIV/AIDS?

Not sure this question needs additional details, it's to the point already

Diagnosed with CD4 of 36, viral load of 500,000. That was 2004. I didn't realize I had AIDS, my brother and sister in law took me to urgent care where they referred me immediately to a hospital. I now am undetectable with a CD4 of 400-500. Everyone's CD4 is different. Normal people are around 1200, but as long as you have an undetectable viral load and a stable CD4 count above 200, you're doing pretty good. Stay proactive with your doctor!

God got bigger plans for you, and you are testimony. All the things doctors tell are from research and theory. After I had my first born the doctor said I couldn't have any more kids. I started believing what they said. For 9 years I couldn't get pregnant. I started going to church and believing in God and got pregnant. My baby is about to be 20years old. My oldest daughter is about to be 29 years old. I listen to them and then I start praying. I almost died from my bowls locking up after a surgery. I know what God can do! I want to thank you for sharing your story and giving me a purpose. May GOD bless you and keep using you and your story

That's what's up. Mines was at 222 when I first got diagnosed, and now it's at 850 and I'm undetectable

I was first diagnosed around 2004, I don't recall exactly, when my blood donation was tested positive. My CD4 has never been detected below 500 and I'm on Biktarvy now and fully undetectable!

It was a lifetime ago. Some of us have lived longer with it than without. Myself now 31 years since the diagnosis and I'm now 55. Thousands of dollars in pills, countless drs.... it gets old but beats the alternative.
