I realized my blog's title is a boring.  Well aside from being too straight forward, it doesn't really have any 'impact'. So I'm thinking of changing my blog's title to POSITIVE. Because I am HIV positive and yet I am very willing to move forward with a good attitude and good disposition that I will overcome this disease. I will not give up and I will continue to fight this disease! I want to write about other things... about my interest, my feelings. I don't want my blog to just revolve around this disease.There is so much more about me than just HIV. And I want to share my ideas and thoughts to the whole world. Well hopefully I'll be able to update this blog more often.

So good bye to I AM HIV POSITIVE and hello to +++POSITIVE+++.

It's been almost 4 months since I last updated this blog.  Sometimes I feel like I want to update this but most of the time I feel so lazy to even open this blog. Besides I dont think there is anyone out there even reading this. Well maybe some of my love ones will read this sometime in the future. When I mustered the courage to let them know about my condition. :(

Well I'm writing now because it's my OFF and I'm bored. LOL!

By the way,  last time I went to RITM I got my initial ARV which is Nevirapine and a combination of Lamivudine and Zidovudine. After 2 weeks I went back and I was told that the Oxygen in my blood decreased (most likely caused by Zidovudine), so I had to switch to Nevirapine, Lamivudine  and Tenofovir.  And so far the results are good.  I still  don't have any allergic reaction to Nevirapine (thank God!). And I can feel that my immune system is starting to recover. 

I still have meds until the first Monday of August. But I'm thinking of coming back to RITM maybe before July ends, but unfortunately Nathan is not available to accompany me. I so I have to reschedule. This will be my first refill. I'm excited to be back and see familiar faces.
