Immune System

Immune System

I got a cold a month ago and it only lasted about 36 hours and just recently I got a slight cut on my finger and it stopped bleeding in around 10 minutes. What does this mean for my immune system. I do recover from sight illnesses quickly.

@A myHIVteam Member it means that your immune system is strong. Some of us have weaker immune systems. So it will take a while to get over a cold, flu, allergies, pneumonia or any other sickness. Those that have a weaker immune system will take a little longer. Or perhaps going to other complications depending on the illness. Some have died because their immune system couldn't take the illness/ sickness / disease. I've had many friends that have passed away because their immune system was in strong. I encourage everyone to take their meds daily. Your meds play a big part against the virus. Our immune system fights along with the cells in our body. Hope I said something to help someone out. Blessings!

I had liver disease and it stopped functioning in 2011 to the point I had to stop all meds until my t cells were at 340. But the liver regenerate and milk thistle helped. We can't take it with meds tho so be careful.
