CD at last count was 455.

What if life is more about trying to survive AIDS leaving no substantial quality of life:

For some Long Term Survivors like myself living 30+ years with this disease and all that has come with it, life now consists of constant doctors visits, monitoring, procedures, surgeries at a much more accelerated pace than ever before.
