Monkeypox

Monkeypox

Has anyone asked their doctor about monkeypox yet?
I just sent an email to my doctor to see if there was any kind of vaccine for it. From what I have read so far, it does not look like there is, but the smallpox vaccine is 80% effective against it. 80% is better than 0%.
Would you get a monkeypox or smallpox vaccine to try and prevent monkeypox?

HIV And Weight Gain?

HIV And Weight Gain?

Since my contracting this illness I have had a terrible time keeping my weight down. I slowly have added almost 50 pounds since 2008. Been on countless diets, weight loss programs and gym memberships only for my weight to bounce back up. On top of it all is onset of osteopenia and fatigue from the illness. Add to this a sleep disorder from the drugs. How many of us have this problem?

HIV And Dementia

HIV And Dementia

Hello
Is HIV dementia still around
I have had HIV since 1992. I have been undetectable since 1994. I am completely healthy and have perfect labs. I do know that meds can't cross the blood brain barrier. For the past couple of years it is difficult to stay asleep and lately I have been under a little bit of stress from my occupation.
