    Firstly I'd like to say that i'm still just a medical student and maybe my advice is not the best out there.

    I would say that you have a good chance of keeping your virus well controlled, but it is important to find a good AIDS specialist in your area and get appropriate antiviral treatment and most importantly, regular check-ups. The doctor may also give you other drugs to take, such as antibiotics to prevent infection because that's the major concern with HIV infection.

    Your test results, at least in theory, are not that bad, you have a moderate viral load, your CD4's could be a bit higher for confort. The most important thing still is to have a good relationship with an HIV specialist.
    Regular check-ups, a healthy lifestyle, regular exercise, a well followed treatment - if you do these things you'll be doing well for a very long time! Even if HIV is not curable yet, it is still very manageable.

    Good luck!
