GAY POZ CAMPING IN TX May 2019

Greetings to my Gay Brothers & Sisters,

I am curious to see if anyone has attended the camping weekend for the GLBTQIA who are POZ set in Texas? I am planning on attending this coming year with a friend. If you have attended, I would love to hear your experience and maybe what goes on. If you know of more gatherings\ workshops\ conferences near Arizona, please let me know and hope I can attend if it revolves around the GLBTQIA or Healthy POZ living and lifestyle. Thank you.

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.

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.
