Finding New Clues for a Functional HIV Cure

George Mason University's Yuntao Wu is the lead scientist on a research team that has identified a measurable indicator that could prove instrumental in the fight against HIV.

The research focuses on cofilin, a key protein that regulates cells to mobilize and fight against infection.

Being taken advantage of for having HIV.

Ever since I was diagnosed positive my sister has used to it to her benefit. To make me look less of a person, one vulnerable and without any power. My dad and mom who are now deceased were supportive of my diagnosis and my lifestyle. I guess my sister hated that. She was constantly asking my parents to change their wills so she could get everything since I probably would be dead. And among other hateful things. I did not ask for anything from my parents only they be… read more

How to stop caring for someone

Today, I have a bad evening. My ex-boyfriend have financial issues and knowing I get paid tomorrow he asked me for money. I don't want to give him money because next week will be my birthday and I want to treat myself for a change. But now he made me feel guilty because I'm not helping him.
How do I stop caring for someone who only see me as a ATM machine?

Bug Chasers

Here is a question I posted over a year ago and would like to reshare with all the new people since then.
What are your thoughts on negative people specifically searching for positive people, to have unprotected sex and become positive? What do you tell people like this? Do you just ignore them?

How has HIV been a POSITVE experience in your life?

Here is a question I posted over a year ago and would like to reshare with all the new people since then.
I always see how people write about how HIV is bad. I always seem to see the negative side, and people talking about the negative things about HIV. Yes usually the negative outweighs the positive, but how has HIV affected you in a positive way?

This is for the heterosexual people.

This is a post from over a year ago.
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."
