Bipolar Lifehacks!
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

Seeking Practical Advice and insights for anyone who is HIV positive & also...bipolar-

I've recently come to think I may be living with bipolar disorder. Finding out my status and moving to a place where Ive been isolated hasnt helped. Im doing fairly stable after my diagnosis , antivirals are great, BUT--- as someone who has battled addiction, including sex and alcoholism, I'm cautious about finding a western treatment that would be suitable for me.

Why Is The Issue Of "DAMAGE To The Body", From All The Yrs Of Toxic HIV Medication Never Included When Talking About "Aging & HIV"?
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

At 38+ yrs with this, I am experiencing digestive, organ, & an array of other problems that point directly to the toxicity of ALL the HIV meds I've had over the years & the health problems from just that makes diagnosis difficult for dr's & prolongs suffering & depletes quality of life. This fact is "ALWAYS" overlooked when talking about "aging & HIV", ALWAYS!!!
Thank you,

Do Anyone Have Lipodystrophy???
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭
A myHIVteam Member

I've had a buffalo hump since the late 90's. My limbs are thinner than normal.
I'd like to blame my big belly on crixivan, but that would be a lie. 😊

World AIDS Day
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

What did you do for World AIDS Day? Mine was a flag raising ceremony and a proclamation by our city mayor. My little brother was extremely happy to be there. When I hopefully see him tomorrow afternoon I will educate him on what HIV/AIDS truly is and I will tell him that I have this chronic illness.

Life Insurance Policy
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

As Im getting older I am thinking about those closest to me and Id like to put my ex in an insurance policy. My hiv specialist promises me I will be undetectable & my health is otherwise ok. i just got an awesome death and dismemberment insurance but I am wondering if anyone with hiv has found a good life insurance policy despite everything because I put my ex at risk...and he is negative..but he is very poor and from a mayan village.

A myHIVteam Member

Thank you :) All of this help from you & everyone is invaluable for me as I have not been in the usa for decades, basically!
