Finances

Finances

How do you keep up with your monthly finances, and still stay afloat? I can keep up with my monthly bills, and daily living just fine. Then when the doctor bills come along, I just can't handle it all. So then I'm late on paying bills. I get food stamps and go to food pantries, but that's not enough. Sometimes I get help through HOPWA (housing opportunity people with AIDS), but that's only for 3 months. What kind of help do you get to keep afloat every month, that I could possibly look into.

We all know that stress and HIV is not a good combination. Pets can help us lower our stress, and they are a part of the family too. So who has pets? Let's show them off! This is my Odie. He was born August 19, 2010. CLICK ON PICTURES TO ENLARGE THEM.

Have you found any kind of discrimination based on your HIV status, once you shared your status?

Have you found any kind of discrimination based on your HIV status, once you shared your status?

Did your employer want you to do a different job? Did family or friends exclude you from outings (picnics, parties, holiday get-togethers, people not wanting you to do certain things or go to certain places etc.)

How did you find this site?

I was wondering how you found this website. Was it through your doctor, HIV/AIDS organization, word of mouth, internet search or something else? Also do you tell people that you know (doctors, case managers, hiv/aids organizations ect.) about this site? So lets hear how you found this site.

Bug Chasers

Bug Chasers

What are your thoughts on negative people specifically searching for positive people, to have unprotected sex and become positive? What do you tell people like this? Do you just ignore them?

2018 Year

2018 Year

I can't believe it has been 18 years since everyone was freaking out how the computers were going to shut everything down, because the years was only set up as 2 digits, and the financial system was going to crash etc. Wow, I am getting old!
Anyway, with the new year upon us, what are your goals for the year 2018? What would you like to accomplish and check off your bucket list?

Notifications

I am curious as to how many members on this site keep their notifications, for future reference.
Do you keep your notifications after you read them or do you out right delete them.
