For sure, Cindi...and especially as a youngster it must be difficult. I was 21 when I contracted the virus, but had other medical issues which pushed it way into the background - until I started noticing symptoms in more recent years. Great that J can get treated now and will be able to enjoy his adulthood free of its effects, both physical & mental.
