Off Topic Forum / I am concerned about something in my body and scared.
« Last post by idee on Today at 05:54:29 AM »
Last week I was in pain for a few days in a private area. I felt the area to examine myself. It turns out I have this lump. Last week I made an appointment and the doctor said it could be a cyst and women get them all the time. She was rude and I felt uncomfortable so I chose not to let her examine me. She felt it wasn't necessary, but said she'd examine me if I wanted.
I changed doctor's that day. My new appointment is not until the 27th. Yet this lump is only coming up and is larger than I previously thought.
So I tried looking information up online to get an idea of what it is. And now I can't sleep. I read that it could be an abscess. Abscesses can be linked to AIDs and Cancer. I only have HIV, but Cancer has run through my family.
I am up at 4 AM and I am worried. I can't sleep after taking an Ambien at 10 PM. I took some Nyquil at 12:30 AM. I laid in bed wondering what this could be.
All I can think of is this thing is seems to swell up or move up and put pressure on my skin it is directly under. I feel it without touching it and the area is sore.
So laying in bed does not help me at this moment.
I am thinking of something to eat at 4 AM. So at least I have my appetite. That has to be a good sign! :-\

I have the iPhone 4s and wanting to upgrade.
The keyboard does my head, in and having 'fat' thumbs doesn't help.
I'm even done using the autocorrect.
If it's spelt wong I jst send it annywoys. lol.

My only issue is, apparently no way to save old texts.
Any advise ?

Manage conversations: Conversations are saved in the Messages list. A blue dot  indicates unread messages. Tap a conversation to view or continue it.
Forward a message: Touch and hold a message or attachment, tap More, select additional items if desired, then tap.

I found the information above in an iPhone manual. Not sure if this will work but if not try looking for the iPhone 4S manual online. If you forward a text to your email address may be you can save to a document on you computer. I have an iPhone 5C. I am not sure how different my phone is from yours. I always send copies of texts to my email to print them out. The last text I printed was an attachment of a recipe my sister sent. Sometimes I print right from my iPhone to my printer.

I'm really looking forward to changing out my piece of crap galaxy s3 for the new iphone 6 when it comes out and when I'm "eligible" at Christmas. 

The six plus looks great.

I've been wanting to throw the galaxy out the window daily since I got it.  It causes rage.  I hope the new iphone chills me out some. 

Also, if anyone is hard up for a phone I will soon have an extra galaxy.  Peace

 No thanks.
 I have my iPhone 5C. I Would have gotten the 5S but it only came in grey, silver, and gold. I liked the green on the 5C. Plus I don't want fingerprint recognition, it isn't important to me.
 I am also eligible for an upgrade and thought of getting the iPhone 6. I don't want to keep spending when I just bought my iPhone two months ago.
 I promised my daughter she can get the iPhone 5S or 6 in January after she looks into the iPhone 6 features more.

Who doesn't like who?! Hmmm

4S messaging doesn't like iPhone 6.
It's all semantics.

All I can say is that you must have a hell of a lot of Irish charm and a sexy accent to make up for all of that.

Charm works wonders, but it's definitely the accent, and the gift of the gab that reels them in.
But add a smattering of humour and bingo, like a duck to water, they're eating out of the palm of my hand.

Oh, and thanks for taking the time to read all that crap. LMAO

Am I Infected? / Re: French Kiss HIV
« Last post by babai on Today at 03:02:13 AM »
Hi All

I recently engaged in a deep french kiss with a female of unknown status. After 2 weeks I started having stomach problems and hot flushes. 3rd week I developed a sore throat.

Could you please let me know if I need to get tested. I am very worried , please help. What is the possibility if blood was present in mouth during kissing and my oral health also not great.

Living With HIV / What does this mean?

It's been getting a little cold as of recent in my area.  Seen a few 60F days.  Lately my legs to my feet have this burning tingling sensation.  I feel it in my hands too.  Any ideas?  Didn't notice it so much in the warm weather

Also, manscaping in the sense we got manicures! Duh! So yes init I've seen his hands.

O.K., so far from this thread we find out Irish is a troll's red headed step child who like to dress up like Richard Simons impersonating Jennifer Beals from Flashdance and whose knuckles are so hairy he has to manscape them with Abso.

All I can say is that you must have a hell of a lot of Irish charm and a sexy accent to make up for all of that.

Plain, unsweetened yogurt?  I thought that was just used as a base in other dishes.  I've tried it and yuck, yuck, yuck.  IMHO, of course.
