Night Sweats

Night Sweats

I 've been on biktarvy for the last two years. I had night sweats before my diagnosis but they stopped for a couple of years while I was on Truvada and Genvoya.

Who Has Done A Family Tree And How Far Have You Gone Back.?

Anybody working on a family tree? I am taking some time off this site to work on one. How far have you got back if you have started one? So far, I have got back to my great x 132 grandparents.

Who Else On Here Is Either An Atheist Or Agnostic?

This question is ONLY for those of us who are Atheist or Agnostic. All due respect to my religious friends on here but please refrain from commenting.
I’m just trying to get a idea how many others on here are not religious and are dealing with HIV and what experiences you might have had. For me my diagnosis made no difference with my views on this subject and in fact it may have strengthen them. I’m a atheist.
Just looking for a friendly discussion on this… read more
