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?

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

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?

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

Can anyone tell me their own experiences with this medication or alternative therapy or treatment?
Thank you!

Do you have trouble finding someone to date because of HIV and/or your age? How do you handle it?

Do you have trouble finding someone to date because of HIV and/or your age? How do you handle it?

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… read more

A trigger of seeing something sexual

A trigger of seeing something sexual

Okay, I'm just now realizing this this may be my trigger. Everytime I look at something sexual, I get...you know .
For example; my friend posted this stupid thing on Street fighter and has Chun-Li getting screwed by this large guy idon'trememberhisname. And now I want to go to naughty machinae online to watch more hentai, and maybe masturbate.
But this keep on happening to me a lot. Most likely when I see something naughty or sexual in the way.
Is there a condition of this?… read more
