Nutrition & HIV / Re: Battling HIV Naturally

The study was designed in the early 2000's and carried out 2004, 2009. Which corresponds to the period in which access to HIV treatment was broadened widely in developing nations, with UN funds, USA funds, and even the beginning of private foundation monies.
In 2005, only half of the people who needed HIV treatment in Botswana had access to treatment.
From the late 90s well into the 2000's it was obvious there was effective treatment available in this world but not obvious how poor countries would access it.
If you know about the history of Africa and withholding of access, you will understand how revolting it was to do a study about vitamins, when such information was STILL being used as part of the BOGUS IMMORAL excuse for withholding access to HIV treatment, in many countries.

That sounds dreadful. We've practically had a drought all winter, at least of snow. I think our total has been 4" only half of which amounted to ground accumulation.

Good point...what I really need is a room count.  Please let me know if you are sharing a room.  Remember we need a hard room count of ten.  I am going to ask for a contract on Monday to get everything set up.  I will post the details.  Almost certainly we will each have to call the hotel (rather than go online) to reserve a room from the AMG block.

For the moment, we all want to know WHO is planning to attend but we also want to know the number of rooms.

I am going to attend and book a room.

Almost - PM SENT. thank you!

Mech, it is way off. My ID did not seem to want to help me. I did ask, but she was afraid to write a script for non-fda approved drugs.

I have not contacted anyone in Florida yet. I know that is the next step.

I was trying to figure out how to get Viraday from India. I am even considering a trip to Mumbai to get a script. I think I can buy 3 months from there.

That should get me by until I get a job and insurance.

Forever is a long time and scary.

Well, we're getting 12-16 inches of snow here.  Already have about a foot. I've shoveled twice.  The temp has dropped 10 degrees since this morning and we're supposed to have 40mph winds.  Ick!

I understood ... You should expect a negative test when you confirm it .

July is a way off so I hope you can figure out some sourcing by then.
I think I heard that in-house pharma had some changes recently. So maybe one does need a perscription. But previously I know one did not need a prescription to order anti-virals from them.

Maybe you should be networking to discuss that option with someone who still does purchase generics.  Have you PM people in this forum who do?

Also have you presented this challenge to a social worker, ASO employee, to see if he/she might have some ideas?

Also - what do yo mean - is your doctor going to stop writing presciptions if/when you lose your insurance?
