Fortunately, your viral load is low. Your CD4 count is not too bad. It is very important to live extremely healthy when you are HIV positive. You should really take care of your health and refrain from drinking alcohol. Alcohol can most definately suppress your immune system. It is also very important to treat your depression and I suggest that you ask your doctor for a script for a good antidepressant, like Cilift.

Selenium and zinc supplementation can only beneficial for your health.

please dont think about death, i know depression i have been there, it is the worst thing ever, to be honest once i asked God why do i have it at least i must have aids, instead of depression that is how bad it was,
you need to see a good therapist the best therapist i ever went to who really brought some light to me was a clinical one who does hypnotis i did it 4 times and spoke about how i felt, you wil be fine, you may feel like you are in hell but the light does come
