My Life After 5 Years of Diagnosis

Posted by Pozziepinoy on 9:40 PM

It has been 5 years since I was diagnosed to have HIV. I was late diagnosed. I was already dying from pneumocistis carinii pneumonia (PCP) and bi-basal pneumonia in September 2011. 

I rebounded. (Please refer to the first day entries of the blog).

Now, 5 years since that life-and-death situation, I am doing great. My viral load remains undetectable and no changes with my antiretroviral medicines. I am still on lamivudine, tenofovir and efavirens cocktail which I still take at 8pm. No missed dose for 5 years. Once in a while I still have vivid dreams and warmness of skin if I eat at the same time as my medicines. Other than than, I am great.

Up to now, Tag and I are still doing great. I came back to my work in the first 3 years of my heath rebound but have focused on the HIV advocacy for a year and a half. It was hard, but still trying to make a difference through Project Red Ribbon Care Management Foundation, Inc., which I founded.

Life goes on even with HIV because I am alive and my health is perfect.

P.S. From time to time, I will update all the readers of my health. I started this blog and you need to also know what's going on with my life as you have been part of my HIV journey.
