Health Care??? What Happened?

This year I was looking forward to changes with the new president.

I realize it is a choice to get on an antiviral therapy and continue to strive to reach an undetectable viral load. Today I went to fill my prescription - $3209.00 deductible. That is quite a bump up from the usual co-pay.

What a surprise after 10 years of meds and adherence to stay healthy. All the while educating not only myself but my community on the importance in knowing your status. I cannot help to notice the error in Health reform. This will set us back in the fight against HIV.

If this is happening in a develop country what will happen to the rest us of the people living with HIV/AIDS in an under develop country like mine Nigeria.

I am so worried and scared that  this can be happening in a well developed country if not checked immediately could have an immediate repacaution on the underdeveloped country such as Nigeria and its neighbouring countries where some are finding it difficult as it is currently to get their ARVs let alone when its being sold at this exorbitant price.

This is really disheartening and heart breaking.
