From where I am meds are for free in any Public Hospital. Burocracy is not complicated (at all) to get them. For now no meds. We both have acces to health care: private one and public one. The public is totally covered and for free of all expenses.

Sorry if I made a mistake in something that I don't know how to handle and thank you for your advice.

El VIH no es una problema por Vd. Adelante con su vida. Punto.

Estoy infectado? / Re: Sexo con prostituta
« Last post by Andy Velez on Yesterday at 05:33:00 PM »
Hombre, termina empezando nuevas hilos. Es una norma firma aqui para los miembres a escrbrir solamente en el mismo hilo. Si empieza un hilo nuevo otra vez vas a ver su acceso aqui bloquado por 28 dias.

Un resultado negativo a 3 meses con ECLIA es conclusivo y fiable. Un negativo a 6 semanas o mas es muy bueno y significa que es muy probable sera conclusivamente negativo a 3 meses.

Pacienca hombre y cojelo suave!

I Just Tested Poz / Re: newly diagnosed / impact lifestyle? change needed?
« Last post by x0 on Yesterday at 05:32:10 PM »

To make it clear. This topic was about how moderate usage of recreational drug affect cd 4/viral load with respect for treatment adherance.

Moderate for me is like once a month on a night dancing.

Since there is little official out there. And positive people do use, I wanted to hear some experiences.

Sex is something else. I saw people do stupid things just on alcohol/drunk or even sober! so this does not have to be drug related.

I am aware that things can get worse from stds to getting infected with anoher hiv string, and I know somewhere it went wrong for me but I'm still practising safe sex and using condoms.

This topic is not promoting or giving advise in anyway. I think everyone can decide for themselve.

The fact im searching for information about this is because I care about my health.

And yes not doing it would be better, but this count for several things in life when it comes to your health.

Insurance, Benefits Programs & HIV / Re: Marriage and Disability Benefits
« Last post by wolfter on Yesterday at 05:29:44 PM »
Nope -- there is nothing "unfortunate" about the decision for Marriage Equality!!  It is ALL GOOD -- equality is a good thing.

This is about the fact that if you are married, your income is not just "yours" it is "ours" and income based benefits look at all the income.  So it is a "marriage" issue, in general.  We can't pick and choose what we want -- we get marriage, with all the good and bad that comes with it.

Everyone, gay or straight, needs to look at everything before getting married.  It might hurt benefit eligibility to do so - but then again, you might miss out on other benefits by not doing so.  It's an individual thing and should be looked at from both the short-term impact view and the long-term impact view.

Mike.  If you read JR's initial post you will see my point.  he said he thinks this all grossly unfair.  I agree.  We're all equal now and as gay people, we must look beyond the feel good aspect of this ruling. 

It is yet another ruling that gives us equality and options.

Dude, you do NOT want any other STD infection on top of what you already have.  Hep C on top of HIV will eventually kill you
