Is there a reason why people dont put their pictures up on their profile? Is it because you scared someone might recognize you here. Aren't most in here hiv positive? Im just curious...

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?

This is a post I posted over a year ago.
Here is a question I posted a year ago. 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 long did you wait to tell your family and friends about your diagnosis?

How long did you wait to tell your family and friends about your diagnosis?

I've been wondering how and when to tell my older brother that I'm HIV+. If things go south, he's gonna be the one that I lean on, that I ask for help. I know for a fact that I'm not going to tell him until after Christmas is over. And honestly, between him and my younger sister, my older brother is least likely to tell this to anyone else.

So, how long after your diagnosis did you wait before you told your family (brothers, sisters, mom,… read more

Several days missing medication

Several days missing medication

As you guys mostly know, I went to Hawaii and I came back Monday. But Sadly Monday was the last time I actually took my medication biktarvy. So Tuesday and Wednesday I didn't take it. But I keep myself cover by take my b-12 pills and everything else. I just now got my meds refilled today.
The question is what will happen if I miss a couple days of my biktarvy? Will I be in danger? My last doctor visit I was still undetected, will that change even though I missed two days?

Help with medical costs?

Help with medical costs?

Im newly diagnosed with HIV and the burden of medical costs has set in. Im currently insured under my dad’s company insurance and I also have medicaid. My dad doesnt know im hiv+ yet and I’m not working at the moment because I’m a fulltime college student. From personal experience, are their any programs that I should know of that would help pay for my appointments and medication?

Live in a discriminatory state; what do you do when you want to give up cause there is no way out?

Live in a discriminatory state; what do you do when you want to give up cause there is no way out?

My ex is using my status to keep threaten me and trying to blackmail me... He gets out of prison in March of 2019. My story has the recording of what he can do and how the police will not help. I am tired of being in Oklahoma, where even the assistant District Attorney's use your military and HIV status against you. I wish there was more help for me, I hate being such a minority.

Is concealing our HIV the new norm, in fear of non-acceptance by friends or family!

Is concealing our HIV the new norm, in fear of non-acceptance by friends or family!

I am finding a tremendous fear of rejection revealing my status to people who do not know me. I have great neighbors and we get a long great just as an example. But I feel I can't tell them about my status because it just not something easily heard these days. Especially liking someone who is not HIV who you would like to pursue a relationship with. Lots of barriers I find these days and stigma. HIV/AIDS is a huge part of our life,… read more

My Dr wants to put me on Flomax

My Dr wants to put me on Flomax

I recently had a Dexascan and I have now officially become diagnosed with Osteoporosis. Specifically in my spine L1 & L2
My Dr has prescribed Flomax, but has described the side effects as minimal. Definitely not what I read online
Can anyone tell me their own experiences with this medication or alternative therapy or treatment?
Thank you!
