The U=U study.

The U=U study.

1) This should/may be a hot topic, please be conciderate to all.
2) I see many people on this site refer to the U=U study and how HIV can not be passed along. They think they are still safe to have unprotected sex, because they are undetectable. The answer to that is NO, you are not safe to have unprotected sex. You can still get other STI's, but let's stick to just HIV.
3) Even though the U=U study has proven that if undetectable, you can not pass the virus on, the key phrase is, "YOU CAN'T… read more

Shame? How to move beyond it

Shame? How to move beyond it

I have suffered long term shame due to abuse I suffered as a child. As a result, my diagnosis is a big source of shame for me. I have good friends and family who have no idea i have been infected for 27 years and probably infected as early as 1986. I'm really struggling and could use some help in this area. I've done some really incredible things in my life and all I feel.is shame instead of pride

Are you religious, spiritual or neither?

Are you religious, spiritual or neither?

Please be respectful. Keep comments civil and do not bash other's beliefs. No arguing back and forth. If you have nothing nice to say, then don't say anything at all. This site is for positivity and negative remarks can get us down and work against our HIV. Thank you.

Notifications

Is anybody else having problems with their "view all notifications" link either on mobile or the computer? As of April 2, I am unable to view all my notifications at once. I can only view them singly. Anybody else having this problem? If not, it must just be my phone and computer (Both Google products).

Adherence

Adherence

Taking meds daily at the right time can keep up undetectable. For some people, after awhile that/those pill/pills can get frustrating. Have you or had you, ever decided to stop taking your meds? If you stopped, are you still off them? If you stopped and restarted, what made you restart? Have you ever thought about it but never did it?

Any one suffering chronic kidney disease due to virus, medications?

Any one suffering chronic kidney disease due to virus, medications?

I have Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease. It came to light in 2008 when I had a battle with kidney stones and had surgery. Right now I'm stable with the meds and diet, but get very anxious every appointment with my kidney doctor afraid I have crossed over into Stage 4 and dialysis. Wondering if anyone has kidney issues from HIV or medications. Just want you to know you have support if you do.
