Hello, I’ve been living with hiv for about 9 yrs now. Contracted from a partner of 4 yrs that didn’t tell me he had it, I found out after he died. Anyways I been taking my meds for close to 9 yrs and have been undetectable for around the same amount of time.
I was on one cocktail for 8 yrs, then they switched me to a “better” one that I was on for some months but it was making me gain weight, and that was causing other health issues. Now they switched me to what seems to be a better one. But what I’m concerned about is the fact that I’ve missed maybe up to 3-4 times over the last 9 years.. this last time I just missed, I absolutely forgot the whole day, usually when I missed before, I at least remembered a cple times during the day but then forgot, usually due to life being hectic at the time. This time wasn’t hectic and I didn’t remember at all the whole day. I’m usually very religious when it come to taking my meds. I’m 45 have had 5 kids. Healthy most my life and I take good care of myself. I do have a reminder set on my phone, google home and my iPad. And I have a gel pack to keep track of my days.. but I’m concerned now because I can’t believe I would of forgot like that, I literally didn’t remember until like 4am the next day. Which is today, so I took them as soon I got up.
