Living With HIV / Re: support group
« Last post by em on Yesterday at 12:28:38 AM »
SO far  I have a three pages of an out line of different parts. I looked into copyrighting  it online it is 114 dollars I have 212 dollars in the bank as my life savings  and can think of quite a few other things I would rather spend the money on ?

just thought I would share a small part of what I have so far

One section was about group meetings and what different people said quite few times things that stuck out in my mind as being interesting. 

What was said a few times by people mostly that were not HIV + that wanted to help our cause

lets say the lords prayer before we start, everyone that was HIV+ would scrunch up their face and  look down and not want to start and I was raised religious but at this meeting could not recall a prayer it did not seem like a place and time appropriate for prayer cause prayer is about hope and being HIV + hope takes a hard hit with gloom and doom when thinking about how HIV effected peoples lives. It was like GOD was absent from that place and time 

that was over twenty years ago I think times have changed at least I hope they have

god willing things will keep getting better

Buenas tardes, tengo dudas y ansiedad por lo siguiente: Tuve relaciones sexuales con una amiga. Utilizamos condon por supuesto, pero en dos oportunidades este se quedó dentro de ella cuando íbamos a cambiar de posición. Que tan riesgosa es esta experiencia para contraer HIV ??? Debo hacerme la prueba ? Cabe anotar que soy circuncidado. Agradezco su respuesta, estoy bastante ansioso

with the heat index 104,here in SAN ANTONIO TEXAS and the humidity is right up there too!!!

I'm just north of you in the Austin area, and yes, it's been bloody hot, 100 or over every day recently. We have rain chances beginning tomorrow, so maybe we'll cool off a bit!
Thanks for your reply. He is still in the hospital, he has neurosyphilis and can't walk now. I'm really scared for him, he is in a lot of pain. The hospital is treating me like "his friend" and not telling me much at all. I hope tomorrow I get more info becuase it will be Monday. But I can't really blame the hospital. Becuase I found out he is still legally married to his ex wife!!!  We been together over 9 years and he has told me the whole time he was divorced.  >:( when it rains it pours. I'm dying inside, I feel so stupid and native.

  I called out of work on Friday.   It wasn't that I was sick or anything, just wore out from working in 95 degree temps (110 index) all week.   Tomorrow, due to storms, temps are supposed to be in the mid 80's.   
Am I Infected? / Re: popped pimple
« Last post by matthew55652 on July 24, 2016, 07:49:24 PM »
so even if the pimple had a tiny amount of blood its not connected to the blood stream? it wasn't actively bleeding but as it popped a tiny drop of blood came out im so worried this created a opening for hiv to get in to my system...I tested neg 2 weeks after but they said to comeback 4-6 weeks and im having panic attacks about this every day

I'm in a similar place as you with my wife. We've discussed it and read the data. It's her decision and she seems on board with it when I'm UD.

She and I trust the data and the opinion of my ID doc and those like Dr Gallant.

Like everyone here has said; it's a personal choice that is unique to each couple.
hola me llamo jonathan , soy gay , en el sia de ayer le realize sexo oral a otro chico siempre lo hago utilizando preservativo , bueno paso a comentar lo que me sucedio , le coloco el preservativo y comienzo a realizar sexo oral al cabo de unos minutos por los moviemiento de el el pene se safa de mi boca y rosa mi diente y el hace un sonido de dolor!! Al cual yo deje de hacer sexo oral y el se comenzo a mirar el pene y vio q le empezo como a salir sangre (el tenia el preservativo puesto , en todo momento tubo el presevativo puesto).
Mi gran temor y duda es que tengo miedo que mi diente haya pinchado o roto el preservativo y su sangre haya entrado en mi boca ! Estoy muy asustado !!!

Cabe aclarar que al ver sangre el se saco el preservativo y yo lo agarre y lo revise y no parecia ni pinchado ni roto!!! Para asegurarme mejor lo llene con agua y no goteaba en absoluto y estana impecable el preservativo !!! Pero igual me sigue dando miedo !!!!

Me debo hacer la prueba de vih???? sebo tomar el PEPP pro-filaxis por esta exposicion???

Espero su respuesta andy saludos!!!
