I am reading Joel Rothschild's Signals.It is  deeply inspiring to me,especially since I have never read a memoir by a HIV+ person( recommendations are welcome) It is in this spirit that I highly welcome the news that the US has approved Stribild, a once a day pill to treat HIV. I have seen the many tablets that patients who are on ARVs  take,some as many as 16 and this is welcome news. Of course it's going to be a while before this pill is available in Nariobi. Still,I choose to celabrate this breakthrough,kudos Gilead Sciences

Murphy's Relationship Law

There was a joke during rounds on the net years ago on how women/men are like computers. According to the women,one of the ways men are like computers is if you get one,you realise if you had waited a few months you could have got a better model. I was single for a whole year and now that am in a relationship,the 'better models'are out. My friend Lucy has remarked about it several times,when you are not in a relationship,no man appears to be interested;the minute you get into one,hordes of them appear out of the woodwork,and the funny part is that some of them were around when you were available.Must be Murphy's relationship law
