HIV Vocabulary
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

HIV Vocab
You may have heard your doctor use some words, when talking about HIV, that you’re not familiar with. Let’s talk about some of these key terms so you can start to better understand HIV
Virus – A virus is an organism that can infect your body’s cells and use them to make more copies of itself (“replicate”). HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus. It’s a virus that infects your immune system

@A myHIVteam Member as long as your CD4 is high and your viral load is low (preferably Undetecable) then you’re doing well.

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

I always wanted to be one of those guys who could drop the engine of a car, or tear apart a motorcycle with confidence. That's not me. But, this morning I am rotating the wheels on my electric skates, and it's pretty much the same thing. 🤠. Even have grease under my fingernails to prove it!

Well... FWIW... I've always said that a real man takes it up the ass haha

Do You Have Trouble Finding Someone To Date Because Of HIV And/or Your Age? How Do You Handle It?
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

I live in a under-educated part of the country, where if you are honest you are typically shunned. As long as they don't know, all seems to be well. Ignorance is indeed bliss.

I find that at 56 I have become completely comfortable with the man I am and with what I need from a mate. It seems that this clarity coupled with my status creates a very difficult set of circumstances which makes meeting someone both compatible and mutually attracted even harder.

Anyone else experience similar… read more

A myHIVteam Member

Yes, but that ok I guess
