One day looking in the mirror, I noticed the signs of facial lipodystrophy, which is facial wasting due to HIV infection.
This experience was psychologically devastating to me. I am very fortunate to have Dr. Jochen as my dermatologist who has been successfully treating me intermittently through the years to alleviate the symptoms of facial lipodystrophy.
I think of Dr. Jochen often, when looking in the mirror, in the work place, or going to social occasions, because now I am no longer concerned with being stigmatized as having HIV infection.
Just recently, I sent Dr. Jochen a card saying- A HEART FELT THANK YOU!
Once again, DR Jochen,-A HEART FELT THANK YOU!
