Other Than Your Family.

Other Than Your Family.

We have the other family that we could serve as our own blood. Who accept you as you are, no matter what. Other than your blood family (which is most likely judgmental in some way,) who did you confess your diagnosis and still accept you as you are?

To me it's the Poetry by the Bay family. They was with me when I was going through cancer treatment and there was with me when I told him the news. They allow me to be me and express my feelings and sometimes rant out the pain that I was dealing… read more

Anyone A Member Of A Support Group?

Anyone A Member Of A Support Group?

Other than this forum, are any of you actively a member of any local support groups in your area?

A few years back, I was. But, I was not getting what I thought I should be receiving from the group. I did speak with the Leaders to voice my desire for the agenda. I also gave it a good run of 2 years of Membership. The Group Leaders took the approach of Education instead of seeking Members Experiences and did not promote any group activities. Although they were very informative meetings, I… read more

Are Taking Drug Holidays A Thing Of The Past?

Are Taking Drug Holidays A Thing Of The Past?

I've been taking HIV medication from 1996 until now. That is 25 years of taking lifesaving but rather toxic medication. Just wondered it anyone has taken one in the past or now. If so, for how long, and were there were any resistance or viral load consequences during the break?

Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!!!

Was Anything Decided If Particular HIV Meds Are Beneficial Against Covid?

Was Anything Decided If Particular HIV Meds Are Beneficial Against Covid?

This topic was discussed during the course of the virus. Wondered if there ever was any scientific evidence to support it, and what HIV meds. I've been completely vaccinated and had my booster. But now seeing another Covid variant emerging out of South Africa and spreading fast to border countries, I figure we need all the protection we can get as immune compromised individuals.

A myHIVteam Member said:

I would be sure and ask your doctor. I currently take two pills a day. My doctor said I could miss up to a week with no worries. That said, I have never done that, but it's still good to know if I… read more
