Anxious About My Health And Future

Anxious About My Health And Future

It's been difficult for me lately to accept that I won't have the life I thought I would pre-pandemic after getting COVID twice as well as HIV. I feel like I've become increasingly debilitated physically and cognitively and I'm unsure what the rest of my life will look like. Does anyone have any advice on prioritizing your health and happiness?

I Am Often Asked About Partner Dignificant Other? Often Wonder About Other Who Are Single?

I Am Often Asked About Partner Dignificant Other? Often Wonder About Other Who Are Single?

I am often asked and am single mainly because I do enjoy my own company and that may sound selfish but as much as I would like the company of someone special, I think at my age that probably is long gone. I enjoy my time friends and some colleagues and the occasional fling but I come with more baggage than an airline and wonder how other single folks feel about being single?

Assistance On Finding HIV Care Facility Near Me.

Assistance On Finding HIV Care Facility Near Me.

Hi Team.
I’m new to the group and just recently migrated to the US. Was diagnosed with HIV in my previous country. Since I got here I haven’t taken any medications. It’s been a month now. I have 2 questions:
* Is there a HIV care facility that you would recommend for me to go to for my medications?

*I used to be a truck driver back from where I came from. Is it possible to obtain a CDL in California given my current condition?

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

If A Twice YEARLY (every 6 Months) Treatment Was Available, Would You Take It?

If A Twice YEARLY (every 6 Months) Treatment Was Available, Would You Take It?

Now that in the past 2 years the United States has went from a monthly shot to bimonthly shot for HIV treatment, long after Europe approved it, would you take a biyearly shot
As I always mention, Europe is ALWAYS ahead of the United States in HIV care. Europe has now approved a biyearly (every 6 months) HIV treatment. Right now, it is only available for people who have no other options because of medication resistance. Again, as usual, Europe is leading the way in HIV care. This is why I follow… read more

Is Anyone Taking Prep For Gonorrhea And Chlamydia?

Is Anyone Taking Prep For Gonorrhea And Chlamydia?

I was part of a panel board at the local medical school. The first speaker was talking about prep for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia. He said it 90% effective. I see my doctor next week and needed to know if there were side effects. We're just starting football season and most of the players play bareback.Just trying to get ahead of cooties. What are the downsides of the pills?

Has Anyone Else Contracted Gonorrhea From The Monkey Pox Vaccine?

Has Anyone Else Contracted Gonorrhea From The Monkey Pox Vaccine?

I recently got my second Monkeypox vaccination which was administered transdermally. After the shot they called me into another room to tell me that I tested positive for Gonorrhea on my last Doctor visit. I received that first shot 2 weeks before which was intra muscular. So it was obvious the STI came from the first shot. I received the antidote a few mins later and the gono cleared up in 24 hours.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Being Taken Advantage Of By Family Members Because You Have HIV, And Haven't Died Yet So They Can't Collect:

Being Taken Advantage Of By Family Members Because You Have HIV, And Haven't Died Yet So They Can't Collect:

It was 2014, after finishing my father's probate, my sister told my attorney she nor her family ever wanted to hear from me again. As my attorney, doctors, and counselor said being very candid, my sister is waiting for me to die to collect my estate. Unfortunately I have disappointed her because I am still alive. We have had minimal contact since 2014-present. I did try to reach out once which turned out to be a mistake, but also a confirmation of what my attorney and specialists had… read more
