When filling out the "my story", I feel like when it comes to my truth, I am either left with saying, "retired" or "other". I think it would be appropriate to have a selection for " Disabled" individuals.

Is there a reason it is not included ?

Who can I contact to let my voice be heard ?

Thank you. Cynthia ❤️

Antiretrovirals

I started treatment about a year ago and started taking Isentress and descovy. I read that people take descovy as Prep. Do I need to be taking both medications? I have noticed that my numbers have gone out of whack with these medications. I exercise regularly and eat healthy.
