Thanks for your email. Please note that advocates at i-Base are not doctors and we have no formal medical training.
A CD4 count of 955 is very good and suggests your immune system is strong. You can read about CD4 count and viral load monitoring here.
Are you receiving treatment for your TB?
Lots of people ask us about life expectancy. With ARVs, started when you need them (usually with a CD4 count around 350) HIV+ people can have a very good life expectancy, similar to HIV negative people. There are lots of previous questions about this here.
