Living With HIV / Keeping my HIV status to myself
« Last post by idee on Today at 12:36:58 AM »
I made a friend today at an AA meeting I attend. I have only attended twice and she has been sober/clean 33 years. She told me up front she has RSD. I said on problem.I listened to her explain her illness and felt happy to meet someone who is overcoming other peoples expectations.
We exchanged numbers and plan to meet for coffee.
I figure we are two women who are starting to be friends. She has a boyfriend and I have a husband. There isn't a reason to tell her about my HIV.
I don't want to be feared or looked at in a negative light anymore. Plus HIV is not who I am, it's only what I have.
I spoke up today in AA. A woman attacked me for being prideful and stuck up. I told her as well as everyone... "I have a reason to be proud. I have worked for ten years on my sobriety. I also come to meetings as no matter how hard I work for my family's approval I only hear accusations of thinking I am better than them. In reality I have confidence in my decisions today and the past ten years. I am tired of being an emotionless robot in order to not let them get the effect they want... watching me break down. I have feelings and can't deal with pretending I am not hurt any longer. So I come to AA. If I mention my achievements it's not to sound better than anyone, it's in hopes of finally getting a pat on the back and being told I did a good job. Except I realize these family members will never respect, approve of, or even like me. Now I work to prove to myself I can do it and be an example for my daughter."
I made a few friends today because of saying this.

What an awesome idea, this Friday night I'm going to have some THC fudge brownies my cousin gave me, with some wine and munchies... Homer will fit right in to the festivities  :D

I also enjoy watching the Marx Brothers when I'm getting stoned  ;)

I don't get smoke marijuana. It has a negative effect on me. I get very depressed.
I did like the Harpo when I was younger. The funny thing is when my husband shaves everything except his mustache he looks like Groucho at times. Especially with his glasses on.
Ebola medicine is being found,
while no one gives a damn about HIV.  ::)
people with Ebola have been waiting on a cure since 1976. Isn't it about time they got their cure since HIV wasn't clinically observed until five years later? And who says, no one is giving a damn? I mean have you bothered to read this "Research News & Studies" section??  ??? ;D

Great to hear your already noticing an improvement in your sleep after just a few days of changing.Wishing you continued success.

I'm interested in making a change from atripla for the same reasons, so will be interested to follow your post.

Thanks for sharing.

Can it possibly be SO good that you also have to watch it in Spanish ?
gods no! Doh! I took french in high school in nc with a teacher who had a Southern accent. LOL besides I can't roll my r's anyway so spanish was out.

that episode is entitled in Spanish because Homer eats a Guatemalan insanity pepper (mmmmm insanity peppers) and hallucinates an Mayan pyramid looking for his soulmate as he is assisted by the Space Coyote (voiced by the late great Johnny Cash)
Definitely! I also plan to save extra cash just in case.

They would answer: HIV is not a bug, but a feature.  ;D
