Session three over

Very disappointed when I got to the hospital on Wednesday to find that someone else was sitting in MY chair… 🙂 One can get very possessive about these things and it just wasn’t right sitting on the other side of the room. Especially when the young woman in the chair next to mine ended up having 6 visitors and a party… Anyway…

Not been quite so bad this time. Although I only got a couple of hours sleep on Wednesday night, and dozed through Thursday night, last night (Friday) wasn’t so bad. Two cups of Red Bush tea, a Nytol and a hay-fever tablet seem to have done the trick.

Went to see the GP yesterday afternoon, as he asked me when I was first diagnosed to keep him up to date with what’s going on. Otherwise, all he knows is when he gets copied into odd letters from various consultants. As I expected, I know more about this and the treatment, than he does, but that’s OK. He has to know a bit about everything, then pass it up to the specialists. He did agree, though, that something like this needs to be seen as a long term problem, as opposed to an acute issue, and we discussed the fact that there are all sorts of treatments coming through that should be ready for me in 5 or 10 years time if I need them. He said that HIV is now basically just a long term condition and no longer progresses to AIDS, provided you live in the West and keep taking your tablets, and to a certain extent, this is where I am going. Keep taking the tablets.

I updated the website yesterday, so if you want to see what’s been done, just go to and see for yourself. I have had a bit of a cull and a complete overhaul using iWeb. I would be pleased to know what you think.
