Sorry for the turn of events.  Not sure if it's something you're happy with, but if not, then do the work necesary to save the relationship.  Otherwise, hope you can figure out how to be happy otherwise.
Off Topic Forum / Re: Here comes Ebola....yikes!!!

looks like it's New York's turn for the Ebola.  This guy seems to have been moving around a lot.  They say he was out bowling last night. 

I wonder if folks with HIV have any immunity against this Virus.  I know that a doctor in Africa was treating some patients with an HIV drug. 
I'm at elmhurst hospital so I'm not gonna be able to post too much. Thanks everyone, you guys seem cool. My aunt went behind my back and called my mom and told her, so they're on their way to nyc. Even if some of you don't believe me, I've read a lot of posts on here and you guys seem like a brave group of people who are apparently much stronger than I.

Thanks dudes

Check in when you can.  Will be thinking of you.

Off Topic Forum / Re: Our new cat!!!!

I'll never understand cat people.

Cats are snakes with fur.

With that low CD4 you need to start HAART right away.
Or your gonna die. dont mean to be rude, just saying the truth.
A friend of mine die because he did not want to start medication, afraid of the side effect.
But, speaking of probability, side effect is just a probability, but without haart it is almost certain youll die. you have nothing to loose.

btw, my friend that died went to traditional medicine practitioner that give advice that he dont do haaart and do the water theraphy. I regret i dont have much knowledge back then and forced him to starts haart.
Living With HIV / Re: The Morality of PrEP
« Last post by Matty the Damned on Yesterday at 09:08:30 PM »
But doesn't PrEP just encourage immorality?

I mean quaffing Truvada like they're Tic-Tacs just gives fags permission to take it raw all the fucking time. AIDS is one thing but what about syphilis?

Or gonorrhea? There are strains of the Clap which are resistant to all current antibiotics.


I have discussed this matter with a local brush turkey:

He was not convinced.

We went to the shelter today and found Geo. He is seven months old. This is the closest anyone of us has been able to get to him since we brought him home three hours ago. My daughter's favorite color is black, (She knows black is absence of color, but in visual art it is defined as a color), and this cat made eye contact with her. He spent three hours listening, smelling, watching, and finally chewing on my papasan chair. We had to put my chair in the work room. I understood Geo would have some destructiveness already. I'm not upset.
Here is Geo with my daughter.

Here's the picture. I tried to post the picture earlier and it did not work. It's what I get when I try to type while eating some raw cookie dough. Geo is cute! The mood in our home has changed already. 
I can not wait to get Geo his little Christmas stocking and hang it on the mantle with ours. Yes, I am having it personalized for him!

Estoy infectado? / Re: sexo oral, preocupadisimo y síntomas
« Last post by sebas12 on Yesterday at 08:51:21 PM »
Hola Andy,le escribo para comentarle mi resultado,como le habia dicho,a los 33 dias del riesgo,el metodo utilizado fue CORE HIV 1-2 y el resultado ha sido gracias a dios y como usted me habia dicho,0 NO REACTIVO!..quien me realizo la prueba dijo que este metodo tiene un periodo ventana de un mes,yo cumpli un mes y 3 dias,aunque dijo que ellos recomiendan repetirlo...tengo que decir que esto ha sido un gran alivio para mi y aunque no sea felicidad completa ya que pienso repetirlo para asegurarme,siempre es alentador recibir un resultado negativo aunque los sintomas han seguido,tanto la candidiasis como cierto ruidos estomacales,pero al menos este resultado alentador espero que me deje concentrar de nuevo en otras cosas de mi vida!,...voy a visitar a un medico como me dijo para ver el porque de mis sintomas y ademas hacerme estudio de otras ets....nuevamente muchas gracias !
