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.

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).

How does one become an HIV educational speaker to our younger generation?

Lately, I have been thinking about being an HIV speaker, educational speaker, or something of that sort. I think I would love to teach the truth about HIV, get the education out there, reduce the stigma, especially to our young people, preferably high school kids.
The problem is I do not know how to begin such a journey, or where I could get such information or even how to get started. I believe once I got my foot in the door, things will… read more

This is for the heterosexual people.

Most of HIV deals with gay men. Straight people with HIV probably feel left out with support, help, or somebody to talk to. My question for straight people is, how do you address things when people talk about HIV and how it's a gay disease, and how gays deserve it for being deviants. Or how do you address when people say, "it will never happen to me, I live a moral lifestyle."

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?

Hi. Anyone experience dental issues related to their HIV meds?

Anyone experience dental issues, such as cavities, loss of, or soft enamel and/or gum erosion as an adverse effect of their HIV meds, Atripla, specifically? I've been taking Atripla since it became available, 10+ yrs ago, and I'm having these dental issues, despite taking care of my teeth. My dentist thinks it's from the meds causing dry mouth, so that bacteria thrives in the mouth, softening enamel at the gumline, creating a good environment for… read more

Functional Cure Achieved in Monkey

A ‘functional cure’ of HIV has been achieved in one monkey given gene therapy that induced it to make two broadly neutralising antibodies against the virus.

Researcher José Martinez-Navio of the University of Miami told the HIV Research for Prevention conference (HIVR4P 2018) that the monkey received no antiretroviral therapy (ART) at any time other than two therapeutic vaccinations containing the genes that induce antibodies, and has remained with an undetectable viral load… read more
