Saw the surgeon same issue t-cells , so I've got to get the count up period , and I'm determined to do so .I bought a juicer and I'm only eating healthy from now on and no smoking of course , keep taking my anti-oxidents  as well .Between the t-cells and the hep-c my risk is much greater of infection , cellulitus is an infection so he gave me new medecine for the cellulitus condition and i must get my t-cells up through diet and supplements at the same time .. So in 6 weks if I'm saying the same thing I'll be upset , right now no , afterr all this is mostly all my fault , this situation that is . I chose to use drugs v, I chose to be an IV drug user  and I had chosen irresponsibility over being responsible . As my brother said this situation won't let you go until your healthy or you live with the pain as is . I'm not staying satisfied living in pain .So thank you all my great friends for your empathy , solace , encouragement and good thoughts , I couldn't have made it to here without all of you friends , I love you all and I'll be around here venting or caring depending on the day until I can get my surgery , I'm trying for two months from now .All my thanks and love to you all my great friends

Mikel We are here for support! So that is what we will do. You know that I will be checking to see if your eating right! You have a very positive attitude with so many problems, and I wish more of us would follow your example of walking in a positive light. So how can we help you? It sounds like we need to make out a list of foods to get you healthy enough for the surgery.
How much work do we have to do? How close are the T-cells to the number you need?

You are going to be great! I know it, I pray it, I feel it and I love you enough to do everything in my power to hope with everything in my heart that those T cells are going to be in the area where they need to be! You've got so many people who love you and are in your corner that we are pulling for you all the way! I love you dearly my Brother and I know you will fight to get this done!

Hey Mike,

I will be saying some extra prayers for those T-cells to keep going up!!

I switched over to all Organic food a few months ago...I feel fantastic! I used to think it was more expensive but places like Whole Foods have sales all the time as well as most stores now have their own version of organic and it's just the same price or even less than processed foods...as well as saving money on any type of take out or drive thru food which I don't do anymore...

I have more energy...face is cleared up...stomach and intestinal issues are all gone..It's amazing how good I feel:)

As well as I only eat meats maybe once a month now...which has also lowered my cholesterol too...

Please don't be too hard on yourself...your past is done with...all you can do now is be in the present and it sounds like you are living the best life you can with trying to eat healthy..and congrats on the non smoking!!! That is awesome:) And whatever light exercise you are able to do with your limitations/pain levels will help too..

I am paying the price now from using tanning beds in high school...Back in the mid 80's..they kept saying it was BETTER than being in the sun since the time was only 15 minutes...as well as not getting harmful UVB rays...WHAT LIES!!!!!! And I went all the time!! And now I am paying the price with skin cancers on my cheek, ear, and leg...So....what's done is done...we can just choose our lifestyle now...

We are all cheering you on and whatever you need from us...we will provide...shoulder to lean on...or wagging of finger to say..nope..no bacon cheesburgers!! LOL...

Big hugs to you (( ))

Hey Mikel...

I've been thinking of you and wondering how you are doing... Thanks for updating us on things, Mikel.

There's so many things that I would like to say... but, for whatever reason, words are failing to come to me (doesn't happen often) :) I guess the simplest thing to say is that I really admire your attitude...despite all the things that have come your way in life... I know you have your moments of feeling down or whatever...but you really have been a "light" here on the board. A much needed light. Thank you for all of your honesty...opening up...and just being the person you are.

I will keep on praying for you...that your t-cells will start rising up... I've heard miracles from people juicing, honestly.

Keep posting...venting...whatever you need to do. And, remember what Cat said - you've got a ton of people in your corner who are pulling for you.

Hi Mikel,

The way I see it, the past is the past and it's your present and future that you need to focus on. You know we're all here to support each other, so consider us your internet family. We're going to nag you and hassle you and question you - all in the most loving of ways! - to make sure you're eating right and doing all the things necessary to get healthy enough for the surgery.

You can do it...and we will be here for you to help you succeed. Deal?

hugs,

Bunky Poo! I agree, lets gang up on the poor man and see to it that he is eating right! :)

Mikel, we will be talking to you tomorrow, so get ready my friend! Get a pen and paper, and start making a list of food that will help you bring those counts up to where they need to be.

Mikel, don't be hard on yourself for your past.  There were alot of people partying in the early years that had no idea of the long term consequences.  HIV & Hep C weren't even discovered yet.  Drugs, Sex & Rock n' Roll was a way of life.  I'm sorry this has happened to you and to alot of my friends. 

Keep working to get those numbers where they need to be and keep your brother close.  It sounds like he is a good person that can help you through this.  You have been a great inspiration for alot of people here and for that I say "Thank You".  You can beat this, so don't give up!!!!

   Dear Mike,
 
     Good evening. *hugg* How are you doing tonight? How do your hipps feel? I hope you are still trying to stay off your feet once every few days.
 
     I am sorry I havnt been around much the last two days. I have been busy making jewelry for the girls for Easter. I woke up to very cute pictures of earrings and necklaces a few days ago.... so I have been on a misson to try to make what they drew. Needless to say my fingers are raw but I am almost done, and thank goodness because my palms are buring to boot.
 
     I am so sorry the surgeon told you much of the same that the others did. I had hoped this one would give you leniency with reguards to the T-Cell count. It is hard knwoing you were turned down, again, while in so much pain. Let alone the obsticles you face daily with decreased mobility. *warm huggs* I can't find the words to express how sorry I am that you have to remain in tremendous pain.  I wanted, expected, this one to be different. Thou I am sure the reasons why are beyond my understanding.... I am sure the higher T-Cell count is for a good reason.... It doesnt change how my heart aches for you. If ever there is anything, anything at all I could do to help. Please, let me know.
 
     If you were to do all the doctors want in reguards to diet and medicine, how long, potentially, could it take before you can get the surgery? I guess what I am asking is, best case cenario...  In 2 months would you be going into the operating room or two months before you get re assesed for the possibility?
 
      You know.. And if you think of me differently, well. I am sorry. .. Here goes....  
 
      You once said to me "You are so kind and caring. It must be a strong upbrining". Yes, but not in the way you think. I left home 2 weeks before I turned 15 and I never, ever, looked back. I assure you I have experienced much the same as you did. Dallas had a very dark and dirty world within it, and I hid there physically and mentally for many years. I have experienced many of the horrors this world has to offer. Only thing I can assure you is yes, the heart of man is very dark. And no, those who deserve punishment often dont recieve it. I have met many many people, and you are not a dark soul. I will never in my life understand why the brightest of stars have to fight against impossible odds.... But I for one am very proud to know you. Very proud to have you as a part of my life, dear friend. Please, do not let your past haunt you. Hold it up and show the world what true strength is made of. *warm huggs*
 
     I want oh so much to chatt more, but my fingers are terribly tender and raw. Please, know you are in our hearts and prayers here. Stand tall!
 
*warm huggs*
    dani

Dani, you are truly a woman who looks to the positive in a person first. I too left home, and never looked back, but it did leave a few scars on my heart. I have never seen you write like this before. Excellent wording and thought. From the Heart it was!

Dearest Dani , As always your words , your presence lifts me, the only way my thoughts about you could change is by me loving our friendship even more than I already do. And your instinct is right , I realized that while I was at the surgeons .I'm not doing all I can , I say I want this so badly but , I still smoked and my diet was not completely healthy  .Now it will be , I ordered the juicer over night express should be here today , no more smoking and I'm going to Physical Rehab to do as much excersise as is safe .Diet , Excersise are the keys also I'm taking anti-oxidents and vitamins to supplement my diet .Sweet Dani I'm sorry you expierenced the darkness that people sometimes perpatrate on each other , I was my own victim , did this to myself thru lack of self-esteem and insecurity .I relate claosely with you, you put it out there who you are as I do because we are both completely at ease with who we are , it doesn't matter who knows what about me and I see your the same way .Only we who have made peace with ourselves can be this way .I put it out I'm hiv+ right away because I'm ok with me , but I know others who hide these things as if you need to be ashamed about it .Its great to be so at peace with myself , no one can scare me with any information about my life or as I sense yours Dani  , because we're ok with every aspect of our lives .It wasn't always that way for me , I used to hide my addiction, my feelings of inadequecy , anything I though made me less then .I now know there is no such thing , we are all human .But you Dani are a very special human in my eyes .Much love to you , your husband and adorable ones !!

OK! That's it! No more TV for me! The best entertainment is right here. I love this Reality Healing Well Story....Staring Dani & Milkel! Special guest ...are Catz4, Screaming Eagle....and many more! :)

This is great, and is just what the Dr ordered for us all! We need to all take a lesson form these two. This is what I call putting it out there!

You two are fun to listen to, and it is wonderful to see support in full swing like this!

Love you both!

All of you guys amaze and inspire me. I honestly grew up with the best childhood imaginable and didn't learn about "bad" people until I was 12 (with my future "now ex" brother-in-law. Then high school taught me more about things people do to each other. Then I was too ashamed to tell of the things done to me. It would have been impossible to face my family then. Now I have PTSD, but who really doesn't when you look back.

Anyway, I chose to be the criminal justice gal, the tough one on the exterior (leaving the inside raw and torn) and trying desperately to be a good wife (and later mother). I became so affected that I couldn't even read the files anymore to find out what the criminals admitted to doing. Mind you, the information was minimized by the ones who did it, but I couldn't live with what I read anymore. It was too close to home in the heart of me. You see, I believe that many of us were so victimized that our bodies couldn't contain the emotion anymore.

This is why I see you guys as such an inspiration. I read what you have written and am touched by emotion because of your survival and your concern for others. I've always been referred to as hard and cold and unfeeling, but I'm so unlike what people see. I was even told that I could never be a good mother because I had no feelings. Naturally, I looked this hateful woman directly in the eyes and told her she sees exactly what I want her to see. My child is my world and I never stop telling (or showing) her how much I love her. I think my worst flaw with her is that I am so over-protective that I have a hard time letting her go anywhere where I don't have control of her environment.

I'm rambling now, but I just wanted you guys to know that your words are read and are inspiring to others.

retiredmom, I think we all are having a bonding moment here, and I have never seen this since I have been a member here.

I do have a little bit of advice for those who will listen. I also had a very traumatic childhood and was abused severely by my mother. Then the adoption by my now parents did not go well either.

It bothered me well into my late 30's and I decided that I was robing my future every time I looked back and kept digging up the past. I was almost 40 before I came to terms with my past. What a waste of life to dwell on the stinky things of the past.

I encourage anyone with a troublesome past to keep your eyes fixed on the future and come to terms with the past as soon as possible. I believe it can affect your health as well.

Good Post today, and I think it will draw us all closer together.

Thank you for responding SE. I think you are right about the bonding. We are all here together for a reason and we are anonymous for a reason too. It gives us the opportunity to express things we could never express otherwise.

A non-alcoholic toast (due to meds) to becoming closer! Cheers

I've loved reading this thread :) You guys are all amazing. Really. It's an amazing thing to be able to talk to people here that just "get it"... that life, for most of us, hasn't been the easiest thing...be it from childhood or whenever.

I love you guys :)

Hello Mikel! I'm just checking on the Errol Flynn of HW here! :) Really though, I'm pretty interested in the juicing thing you are doing, and you know that I will keep pestering you until I'm sure that you are taking care of business in getting your t-cell count back up to where it needs to be.
I know you have not had it very long, but how do you like it? I did some of my own research on the Model and Brand you picked out, and it rates as one of the best in the business. I think you did a great job in your research on it.

You know, I'm willing to bet that there are several members interested in this Juicing that you are doing. Can you tell us if it is more expensive to eat this way. I have also watched some of the youtube videos on it, and was wondering why they just don't eat the whole carrot or the apple. Do you have any thoughts on this yet. I think the bottom line with these Juicers, is that you are getting better nutrients this way.

We all are pulling for you, and of course I will be following you closely. It's good to see you on FB as well, and puts a personal touch on the relationship for me. In fact, we have quite a few members there now, and it is wonderful to see them.

Also, congratulations on the girlfriend, and I for one am glad to see someone there for you in person.

Thanks brother ! So far the juicer is working well , some things to consider are that to get the best result you really should make it fresh each time you drink ,to get the best nutritional value however i juice about a quart worth , drink my fill and have a drink for later or tomorrow .Of course you must wash the juicer parts each time , about 4 pieces and the 2 collection holders .One holds the juice one the fiber . You can also eat the fiber as well it is good for the digestive system too , put some salad dressing on it and munch ! You of course must buy fresh veggies every 3 days or so , not too expensive to me anyway I think its reasonable to be healthy .I bought kale , spinach , apples and carrots enough for 2 days under $10.00 bucks so if ya buy it all at once probably 30 bucks a week or so would cover it .For me I'm worth it , although I didn't always feel like this , I encourage anyone to try juicing or anything healthy that can improve you quality of life . GO GO GO !!! Mikel

I LOVE my juicer! I got one many years ago and my favorite 'pick me up' drink in the afternoon is two apples, carrots, and a tiny bit of parsley...(Parsley is a huge energy boost...I put a handful in one time and couldn't fall asleep that night!!!)...

for people who think..YUCK!...You really only taste the sweet things..so it's like drinking apple juice...and the good juicers completely liquify everything so not a hint of pulp!

And yes..the pulp that you make in the container you make muffins or many different yummy things...

It is one of the best investments I have made! Love trying all the different juice recipes that come with it..as well as finding combos online from other people...

Glad you are liking yours Mikel:)

Hey annie ! Are you saying the color has anyhthing to do with potency ?or that it just looks kind of funky ? I wasn't sure what you meant !Why did you stop juicng ? Actually it hasn't been bad `at all . Although the kale does taste better than the spinach , the apples and carrots help the taste be bearable . I just tell myself this is good for me and will help me and that seems to make it easier .
