« Last post by Tonny2 on Today at 03:29:43 PM »


         ojo       Hola Pozmx, lamento mucho tu situacion...no hay manera que lo cites y hablen acerca de lo que sienten?...ya tuvieron relaciones con proteccion, tal vez, necesita que lo eduques acerca del virus, y darle un poco de tiempo para que digiera la noticia...se que esa frase, "no te pierdas", puede implicar muchas cosas, pero si te interesa y segun platicas, el estaba interesado en ti, tal vez ayude que hables con el, BUSCALO, no te des por vencido..y si, te dice definitivamente NO, no te queria lo suficiente..haz tratado en buscar otras personas poz?...no se que edad tengas, peero echale ganas, vale la pena seguir luchando por encontrar el amor....para la proxima, tal vez te ayude ser sincero antes de llegar a una relacion sexual...ok my friend, te deseo suerte y si no fue este, habra otro que si te quiera de verdad...abrazos     ojo

Estoy infectado? / Re: Dudas sí el Condón rompió
« Last post by Nando on Today at 03:27:09 PM »
Buenas tardes Grand. Sr. Andy y amigos membros deste foro.

Tiengo marcado para esta semana (Miercoles) el benedicto test!

Crees que yo puedo estar tranquilo com el resultado?
Estoy nervioso ... y miedo de tener resultado positivo.

Estoy tan solo en esta pesadilla! Usted es el único com quien hablo  y desbafo!

Si der negativo será una gran lección de vida.

Un saludo y todo lo mejor para Senhor.

Abrazo

Living With HIV / Re: He STILL won't take meds

My advice would be if possible to remove your son and yourself out of this situation (to family? Friends?). Take back your control. This will be a safer environment for your child, and eventually for your own mental health. if your partner gets the help and remains steady on treatment you are both then in a position to decide how to go forward with your relationship.

Someone I Care About Has HIV / Re: New To All of This.
« Last post by mecch on Today at 03:24:22 PM »
Weber,
I honestly thought that every year when I went in for my "yearly" at my gyno that I was being tested for all forms of STD's and STI's. HIV included. It came as a HUGE shock to me that I wasn't. I informed several of my female friends of this and they too were shocked. So I just learned that I have to actually REQUEST the test to even get it. So over the years, I have been under the impression that I was clean and had kept up with my testing. Clearly I was mistaken and I am now informing all women I know that the gyno does not typically test for that. I know I cannot really speak on my partner's behalf regarding previous testing.

Yes its pretty ridiculous that there is no routine testing for STDs and for HIV in this day and age. But you know, I bet a lot of people would be offended if they were routinely tested.

As an aside, HIV+ folks don't much like the word "clean" for STD free.  I know its common usage, but as I have HIV for life I don't think of myself as "dirty".  ;D

Weber,
No offense intended, just because there was mention of post-test unprotected sex between couples. Apologies if offense taken...

I'm not his carer, strangely enough he is fine, given his cd4 must be 0 by now.  But the mental health/mood swings he has really take their toll on me.  Sometimes he's suicidal, sometimes he's fine. Just waiting for the next hospital admission (when I know he'll take the meds again long enough to feel better)

De nada, Sebas.

Are you the caregiver?
Im sorry you have to go through this.
Yes it feels like a terminal illness because it is in the case you are describing.
A few years ago my family went through this several year experience with my dad.
Its been since the 80's since I went through this with loved ones with AIDS.  It was not different really - terminal illness with a lot of mysteries and surprises.
Its somewhat worse when its a young person dying of course. My loved ones were young.
When my dad was dying the nurses, hospice social worker, and chaplain were all helpful on the questions.

Muchas gracias amigo.. siempre tu ayuda es valorada

Saludos
