Are You A Long-term Survivor?

Are You A Long-term Survivor?

Being a long-term Survivor has its many setbacks. One of them being loneliness and feeling left out. With the new generation of Atriplas, many of us long-term survivors experience feeling forgotten.

I am a 20 year survivor. Years ago I wondered if I would ever make it this long. I have never been able to become completely undetectable. There is some type of resistance that they are unable to pin down to get me on the right medication to accomplish that. Hugs to all the other long term survivors out there and hugs to the new people, just do all the things you are supposed to do and you will be a long term survivor too!

Yes thank you Luisgabriel we are forgotten and we have our own group here but on the other hand kind of upsets me for the simple fact that we have the HIV meds that are given out free to people in the form of prep so are we forgotten yes no but they get this for free to keep them protected catch 22 life is never fair I am awesomely good with it but we have paved the way for people who have not contracted HIV to get HIV meds for free I don't know if people are aware of this adap insurance is given to those people wow so we should not be forgotten because we've tested these meds for these people keeping us able to have them and be on them that's my take on this loves hugs and blessings to all

Let me let me start off by saying next week I will be 60 years old. That brings a lot of things to mind especially the fact that my elderly parents are the only source of support that I have other than my partner and my bulldog. My concern is their departure from this world. I have begun to think what I can do to help me through this tough time. I just needed to put it out there as I'm sure I'm not the only person who suffers from this.

25 + yrs. here & despite all that I do to maintain the positivity in my life there are times when I experience the isolation and loneliness that comes with being an LTS. I guess it comes with the territory.
