So I recently spiked a slight viral load and was unsure why because I never skip doses. I've been undetectable since 2003. I was told if you don't skip doses you won't become resistant to your antivirals. Not true for me. I have been on the same regimen for 15 years: Kaletra and Epzicom. My doctor did a genotype to identify my resistances. I knew already that I had a lot and it turns out I'm resistant to 75% of all that are currently available. So before anything gets out of control I will be switching to Presista, a Norvir booster and Biktarvy. I hope this will work for me and get me back to under 20 copies again.
It's a bit scary, and of course I have anxiety cause it's been so long since I've had a medication change (15 years). So as an HIV advocate, I like to share some of my journey with others. I'll keep you all posted. I didn't expect this but I guess with HIV disease anything can happen. So I'm asking again for prayers. I don't want to ever go back to the horrors of my early diagnosis 30 years ago.
