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

Primary and secondary insurance??

Primary and secondary insurance??

Hey guys. I’ve been really confused with how my insurance works and I’d appreciate any helpful information. So basically, I’m insured under my dad’s private health insurance (Aetna) and I have Louisiana medicaid as my secondary insurance. Will my dad be responsible for paying my deductibles/out-of-pocket expenses for my claims? Or will medicaid pay for everything?

*P.s.- sorry if these are silly questions. Using health insurance is still new to me and managing both my primary and… 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.

Are your out of pocket payments for medication getting ridiculous?

Are your out of pocket payments for medication getting ridiculous?

I used to be on ADAP, the Government Drug Assistance Program for AIDS for years until I inherited a trust which changed everything. I no longer am eligible, making too much money which I get. I am enrolled in a MedAdvantage Plan with a major insurance provider I have with for years. They take care of all my Medicare expenses, plus provide me with some extras. We know we do not have any generic HIV drugs on the market here in the US that I know of,… 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
