Eleven Thousand Two Hundred Eighty-Four Pills a Year

One week's supply of medication: 217 pills

The photo above shows the amount of medication I take each day, and the amount I take each week. I have not estimated the cost of these drugs, but I can tell you that one single prescription, for a one-hundred day supply would cost me over $3500 if I were not fortunate enough to have a prescription drug benefit.

Thank you for posting this- I think people need to see it, especially all my peers who shrug off wearing a condom because of their perception of HIV as a chronic disease...
