Do you feel alone?

Do you feel alone?

Has HIV had an effect on your social, personal, sexual or family life?.. Has it cost you relationships? Made you more reserved and distrusting of others, creating an atmosphere of loneliness in your life at times?

Who has pets?

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.

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.

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.)

Oh, plain and simple. The owners of the last company I worked for told me they fired me for having HIV. Try proving it to the EEOC is another thing.
