Afternoon all,

Andrea, I have only one daughter.  She's already had two children who yes, she gave up.  Anyway, I did get the paper done, last Thursday.  This week is the last week of these classes, then they switch.  I'm glad your coughing is getting better.  Sometimes coughs just seem to hang on.

Queen, I hope you're feeling better.

Tendai, it sounds like you're being a good judge of character about the ex.  And you know what, I'm glad I'm single also.  I really have too many other things going on right now to worry about making another person happy.

TreDai, good to hear from you.  Glad all is going well.

There seems to be something (cold) going around all over.  I've read other threads about people being sick.  Next week when I get my Depo shot, I'm also getting a flu shot, and hope everyone else has theirs.  Nothing going on today.  You all have a good one.

tendai- I always get sick with a little stomach bug during my period, although I am sure it isn't a bug but just that my hormones are wacked out and it makes me vomit, almost like morning sickness.

Everything is good here. The show went well the other night. We got kicked out. Good times. Yeah, apparantley it is illegal at that bar to take your drink outside with you when you smoke and the cop/bouncer/rent-a-cop gave us no free passes, he gave us 5 minutes to leave which meant "Animal" (that is what I will call my bf since he is a drummer...you know the characacter from the Muppet Show??) had to break down his drums in that time and be out. It was ridiculous. Their CD Release party is Nov 1 which is the big gig. We will make sure not to take our drinks outside then. Aninal messed up his neck Sunday and is now shacked up in a bed on Loritabs. Got his bloodwork back yesterday and their is some pretty severe inflammation in his body so they are sending him to a specialist for arthritis.

Have a good day ladies!

Hey ladies,

Netta, good luck with the apartment.  I know you've been wanting to move for some time.

Andrea, how's it going?

Tendai, I don't actually know what a bank queue is, but I guess it's like the atm's we have here (automatic teller machines).  I hope you get to feeling better.  I always seem to get sinus trouble the week before my period is supposed to happen.

Jenny, I hope "Animal's" neck gets to feeling better. 

Last night was my last Microeconomics class.  As long as I passed, I'll be happy.  I should know sometime tomorrow or next Monday.  So relieved that's over with.  Tonight's my final Government class.  Next week two new classes. 

Nothing much has been happening the last couple days.  I've been talking to my daughter on and off to find out how she's been doing, and she tells me she's alright.  I hope you ladies have a good day.

Good Morning. Thursdays are my favorite day. We have early release day at school  :) There 's nothing really going on...same old same old!

BT- I bet you are relieved to be finished with your classes. What are the two new ones?

Netta- Hey lady! :)

Jenny- Where are you at again? What is the name of the band?

Tendai-  :)

Hello to all the other ladies!!!! I am glad the week is almost over. It has been sooo hot here. Yesterday the Santa Ana winds were crazy and the kids couldn't stop talking about it. They are so funny sometimes.

Talk to you all later.  ;D ;D

viv- I am in XXX and the band is called XXX. They are an original rock band. Tonight they are doing a radio interview and I am going with them. They also gave a couple of songs for them to play and one of them was the one that I did some "backup" on. Pretty cool huh?

Hey ladies,

Netta, I'm not familiar with the supplement you're taking.  I've heard of black cohosh before, but I couldn't tell you anything about it.  You might want to check with your doctor.

Andrea, I know you're glad this week is almost over.  And it's freezing here in Hoosierville.  They're talking about maybe a little snow next week.  The next two classes are "Forensic Psychology" and "Human Sexuality."

Keeping, congratulations on the B+!  Good job.

Jenny, good luck with the radio interview.

Wendy, what's going on girl?

It has been pretty quiet here.  People must be busy.  I'm waiting for my therapist, then I'm going to my school and to the store.  Nothing going on other than that.  You ladies have a good one.

Nothing much.
We went to Houston again last weekend to meet with the siblings and decide who gets what out of Billy's step dad's house. Billy got several of his maternal grand parents things that where in the house. Which is all he really wanted aside from any money that will come later.
I got a head cold on the trip its in my lungs too. I feel mostly ok. I'm taking bactrim. Its just those annoying sniffles and a pain in the ass cough.

I am taking a break from cleaning house. I just had lunch. I went to work this morning. After that I went to the hospital and picked up some refills and on the way home I stopped at the Half Price Book store and got 3 books out of their clearance section for a dollar each. Other than that its just a plain ole same ole day which suits me fine. Sure as hell beats drama.

hi ladies
i think im getting old.  i changed bags to go to work since i'll be spending friday night at my aunts house so i forgot my wallet in my other bag.  i didnt even have enough money to pay for the kombi ride. he had to settle for $14,000 instead of $20,000. only noticed it when i wanted to pay the conductor. maybe its bcoz i was so pissed at having to come to work when im supposed to be off today, but the lady i work with was like "oooh i'll never manage on my own i cant do it, u know im old and sick, please u have to come".  i had wanted to go to the bank but i cant anyway since i also left my ID at home.. hopefully its not going to ruin the rest of the day.
u ladies have a great one..

Hey ladies,

Wendy, please take care of yourself.  I know you have low CD4's, so I get a bit worried when you're sick.   I feel for you sorting out Billy's father's house.  My siblings and I had to do that with my parent's house and there was 50+ years worth of stuff. 

Queen, I hope you're feeling better soon.  There's something going around right now. 

Tendai, when you talk about a ride to work costing $14,000 it just floors me.  $14,000 here in the states could buy someone a new car.  Inflation in your country is unbelievable.  You really are a survivor to cope with all of it.  Sorry you had to go into work.  I hope you have a good time at your aunts' place.

Well, I got a B+ in Microeconomics.  I have no idea how I managed to accomplish that.  I guess I know more about the economy now than I used to, but I still couldn't figure out those formulas economists use.  Maybe the professor liked my final paper about global poverty.  Who knows. The other class' grade isn't in yet. 

It's raining here (has been all day).  I'm going to check out a couple threads and lay down for awhile.  You ladies have a good day.

Yeah it is nasty here too, cold and rainy. It is about time to quit smokin cuz I don't have a covered porch and I am not gonna battle a freakin umbrella while holding a cigarette. Not worth it to me.

Wendy, I hope you get better, both of my daughters have that nasty cough and there is an outbreak of Whooping Cough going around here.

BT, I was thinking the same thing. That better of been one heck of a ride! heee hee. A B+ !!! Awesome!

Queen-hope you get better too !

Well, off to smoke with my umbrella....oh, yeah too much trouble, that's right. Nevermind.

Morning all,

Jenny, there's whooping cough going around here also.  So strange.  Do you have young children and that's why you smoke outside?  When I used to smoke, I smoked indoors.  My daughter's 24 and lives 1/2 way across the country and I figured it's my place and I'll smoke inside if I want to.  Of course, if I had young children I'd smoke outside.  And cigarette smoke isn't very pleasant to smell either, I understand that.

It's very dark and gloomey here.  I'm going in a couple hours to help a friend move.  She's moving back from another town and has tons of stuff.  I guess I can be glad it's not 90 degrees outside.  There's going to be an NA speaker jam tonight that I was going to go to, but I don't plan on it now.  It's the type of day to stay in and read or watch a movie and that's what I plan to do after I'm done helping my friend move.  You ladies have a good day.

I'll be ok. I did not do much yesterday. Today I've likely done too much already LOL
Its not whooping cough thats for sure. Its not a dry cough. It will pass. Just one of those things when you have a shitty immune system.
Billy left early this morning to go get a couple of more things we could not get last time we went to Houston. He is supposed to go and come back but we'll see. I suspect he will because he had to rent a trailer. It should be interesting because the items he is getting are heavy.
I cleaned some of the garage out again this morning. I'll move things around and make room then a week later everything will be all jacked up again. I've bagged up some clothing and other stuff to be donated. I figure if it has been in the garage for as long as it has obviously we dont need it.

Hey all! Well I too still have the remains of my cough. The antibiotics REALLY helped but there's still a little there. I'm still taking Mucinex and using my inhaler. I don't have much going on today. I want to get some work done and then I'm going to a Halloween party tonight.

Have a good day! :)

Hey Ladies----

Sorry, I haven't been posting too much lately. I just really don't have much to say, not depressed or anything. Hell, I haven't even blogged in a few weeks. I have drifted away from Sexy since the arguement, we have talked since then but it turned me off and away from him. Another one bites the dust.

Not doing much today but enjoying the horror flicks on AMC. They are showing some of the Halloween movies since last night was the 30th anniversary of the original. They had Rob Zombie, who shares my Bday, hosting it. and had PJ Soles from the original on there along with the little girl from Parts 4 and 5 who is grown now. So, I have been flipping from there to the Sci-Fi channel cause they are showing some horror stuff too, I just love it. I want to go see Saw 5, has anyone seen it yet?

I have my gf's digital camera so I am going to mess around and take some current pics. Got to get made up for that, I don't want to scare the sh*t out of anyone..*lol* Though I have not been commenting much, I have been reading.

*throws up two fingers*....(not those two fingers...lol) Peace!!!!

Hey ladies,

Wendy, don't overdo it when you're not feeling well.

Andrea, how was the party?

Queen, I love your avvy!  You sound like you're feeling better-that's good.  I've been watching the movies in AMC on and off. 

Nothing happening here today.  It's extremely windy-the gusts are going up to 50mph.  I'm staying in. My brother should be coming over tonight for more of "The Wire." I wish that show was still on.  You ladies have a good day.

Good Morning!
Well today I have sooooooooo much work to do and I just don't want to do anything. The party last night was fun, later at home was not so much. I don't know what happened but I was SICK! I am not a real drinker and it doesn't take much to get me buzzed. I had 2 drinks and apparently that was enough. I didn't get much sleep and I had to do some cleaning...I'll spare you all the details...LOL! My mom was with me at the party with her friend and she said I was drunk but I'm certain I wasn't. I mean, I remember all my conversations and everything I did, I drove home...maybe it just didn't settle well with me. Anyways....I think I might take a nap before I get started on my lesson plans... :)

Talk to you all later!

BT- Yeah I have a 3 and a 4 year old and that is definitely why I smoke outside. It sucks. My boyfriend is great though. He has been used to smoking indoors all of his life and now he can't, he is fine with it and understands. My youngest had an unbelievable case of diarrhea over the weekend. She isn't 100% potty trained yet so it was delightful to say the least. I know she woke up every hour Saturday night and eventually just started saying, "Mommy, I peed again", when it was actually poo. Sorry, TMI.

Good morning ladies,

Just checking in. Nothing much really going on with me today. I was in the bed all weekend with a sore throat and sinus infection. I feel a little better now.  I was looking at the news and saw that Jennifer Hudsons nephew may have been found. That really brought tears to my eyes. That is just so sad. I can imagine the pain that they are feeling to loose their mom brother and now nephew/son. (OMG) I have a paper due on macroecomincs today. I only have to write 400 words, (BT, you think you can help a poor soul in need)  ;)  I hope everyone is doing well

Afternoon ladies,

Andrea, if you don't drink much, those two drinks could have made you sick.  When I drank, I used to hate getting sick from too much booze.  Anyway, I don't know that they would have made you drunk.  Maybe just a bit more relaxed.

Jenny, sorry to hear about your daughter's runs.  I hope she's feeling better.  I quit smoking awhile back using Chantix.  I just got tired of paying so much for cigarettes and not being able to breathe (not a good trade-off).  Not everyone can take Chantix though because of the psychological side effects.  I'm on an antidepressant, and I think that keeps me safeguarded.

Keeping, I have no idea about macroeconomics.  I took micro.  Good luck though, I feel for you.  I heard on the t.v. about Hudson's nephew.  I haven't heard anymore since this morning though (of course, I don't have the news channels on right now either).

Nothing going on today.  I'm waiting for a friend of mine to come over and get my car.  I'm going to let her borrow it because she's having hard financial times.  And I'm still driving another friend's Toyota.  If I get another car, I'm just going to let my friend have the car.  Then I won't have to figure out what the hell to do with it.  Other than that, nada.  I hope you ladies have a good day.

Hi GFs~

Kicking serious butt at work, my teammate wants me to take some of her work, but I'm not even done with mine!  PITA was already upset this morning and her teammate won't talk to her.  Ugh, such drama! 

I am at Ice's for a few nights.  We took youngest to the pumpkin patch yest and had a great time! 

BT congrats on the the B+ in Micro!

Queen, glad you're feeling better, you look great in your avitar, GF!

Has Mum ever come back?  Doesn't look like it...  :(

Going to curl up with a bowl of soup tonight....

Yeah, I just read about Hudson's nephew being killed too. How can anyone take a life especially that of a child. I really feel for her. My sugar has been been crashing like crazy and I think it's because I haven't been drinking Pepsi for the past few days. Not a good feeling at all so I went out and got a 2 liter. It seems to be the only time it crashes is when I don't drink any.

It's no wonder everyone is getting sick, it's that time of year when the weather changes. It's been raining and snowing off and on. It hasn't been sticking yet but it's suppose to start. Time to get the car road ready. I am dreading it already.

I need to go cook me some dinner, I think I am going to cook some liver. Am noticing that this thread is taking a long time to get to 100 posts. Are we actually running out of things to say? :D

Good evening ladies! I agree with Queen, it certaintly is slowing down but that's ok. Maybe everyone's life is calming down.

Tomorrow is my surgery and I just want to hurry up and get it over with. I just finished typing up my lesson plans for the substitute. I do have kind of a funny story. I told the kids I would be gone for two days. I always try to prepare them and give them a talk about how I expect them to act and so on. Well they asked why I was going to be absent and I told them I was going to have a little surgery. Well one of them asks if I am going to have plastic surgery. Another boy says, that is not a nice question to ask! I told him, No I was not having plastic surgery and did he think I needed it or something. The kids just laughed. What I want to know is how does that kid know about plastic surgery? Funny.

Well that's about all for tonight. Talk to you all later!

Good Morning Ladies,

I have a slipped disk in my back. It hurts so bad. I have never felt anything like this besides labor pains.



The boards are slowing down quite a bit.

Viv- I hope everything goes well with your surgery

Just checking in for a min. Still doped from the shot last night. I will check later.

Hi Everyone!
  Trying to catch up with everyone but probably won't remember everything or everyone.

keeping- Sorry to hear about your back, that is worst pain.  AMG stands for aids meds gathering, I think, I didn't want to put it on facebook, just in case :)

BT- Great job on your class grade!!! I knew you could do it.

Viv- Good Luck on your surgery tomorrow!

Queen- YUCK!! You guys are getting snow!  We might get some tonight, it has been pouring here- I am not looking forward to it at all.  I have been watching TV about the Hudson and the tot mom case, such sad stories.

Drag- I hope your day was as beautiful as you wanted!

Moon- Do you guys have a maze at the pumpkin patch?  I went to one around here once, not my idea of fun with 4 small ones and the children of the corn playing in the back of my mind.

I have been running around with my head cut off.  Still not ready for Halloween yet.  So much to do, so little time to do it.  I might be meeting a poz women that moves close to me this week for lunch, hopefully we can align our schedules.  I would really love to have someone here to talk too.

I hope everyone is doing well!

Hey ladies,

Cin, I've been eating soup lately also.

Queen, we had snow stick last night and a bit this morning.  It's so cold out, it's like a shock to the body. 

Andrea, good luck with your surgery.  Please let us know how it goes.  I'll be thinking about you.

Keeping, ouch!  What are they going to do about it, besides give you shots?

Snow, I hope you get the chance to meet that other positive woman.  It does help to talk to someone.  I wish there was another positive female here to talk to, but they're all in hiding.  Good luck and let us know how it goes.

I got an "A" in the other class I took (Government).  Tomorrow night starts "Forensic Psychology." 

I got my flu and Depo shots today.  I feel alright so far.  I cleaned my apartment yesterday and touched up my roots today.  Sometimes I think about coloring my hair back to its natural color, which I think is light brown.  It's been so long, I'm not really sure.

Also, Sunday marked my 3rd year drug/alcohol-free.  I had forgotten about it; my sister in Arizona reminded me.  That's about all that's been happening for me.  You ladies have a good evening.

Of course there was a maze at the pumpkin patch!  I was bugging Iceman all year long about going to it!  LOL  We got in late and didn't have time to find all of the checkpoints.  I always bring trail mix cause my sugar crashes running around in there for hours!

They have another one near me that you go in at night with a flashlight.  One year I got turned around and stepped out the side of the corn.  There I was, face to face with a barn-full of turkeys looking at me, lol.  :)

I figured since I am up at this ungodly hour, I might as well check in. Went to visit Sexy the other day, no sparks, I think he may just end up being a friend. He has too many hangups with females because he got with some nuts. And frankly, I am getting tired of being compared to them when I am nothing like them. Did start talking to someone online who lives about five hours away from me. So, I guess I'll see how that goes. Maybe I'll call him, Papi... ;)

Yeah, it is really getting nippy out and still raining. Winter is on the way and I freaking hate it. Not much else really going on. My son wrote me today and they still have not sentenced him yet. It seems like our county jail is filling up with kids doing adult crimes. It really is sad.

I guess we all have something occupying out time that is why the thread is moving slow. I take it as a good thing, at least the thread is staying alive.

Good Morning Ladies!  :)

Keeping- Your back sounds painful! How did that happen?

Snow- I know how it is when there is a lot to do. Good luck with the potential pos friend. Sometimes I REALLY wish I had some friends who were in the same position as I am in. Most of the groups are so far away. There is a lot in Los Angeles but that really is not very local for me.  I don't know...

BT- Congratulations on the 3 years! What an accomplishment. Is it still hard? I don't really know much about addiction but I imagine the urge never leaves. Good for you with the A. I am totally interested in your next class, Forensic Psy. I wish I could take it. I just really want to say that you are a special woman and I think about you often. You are so positive and are making the most out of your life. Good for you!

Cindy- I would be the ding-dong that they would have to come searching for in one of those mazes LOL!

Queen- Too bad about Sexy but I see you've got more to occupy your time....go girl.

Well, I had my surgery yesterday and the doctor said everything went well. I woke up with a lot of pain and they gave me something for that. I had A LOT of bleeding for the first couple of hours and had to call the doctor and then everything calmed down. I was just mostly very tired. My voice is all messed up and today my throat hurts but they said that is from the tube they put in my throat. I have today off from school and I am just going to take it easy. I am just dealing with the bleeding. It is like going to be on my period for 3 weeks but like the first day, you know the heaviest. The doctor took a sample of the tissue and sent it to be tested and I should find out next week if they got everything. So I guess we will see...
When I had to fill out the paperwork I had to put down that I had HIV and my mom asked if that has gotten any easier. That was only the second time I've had to put it down and it bothers me. I guess it is just something about putting it in writing...Do any of you have the same feeling? I guess maybe the more time I have the easier it will be...

That's all for now. I am going to rest today and hopefully get some papers graded!

Oh...everyone is talking about it getting cold where they live...well here it is still in the 80's. They say it is the hottest October for us. I am ready for a cool down but I definitely would not enjoy the snow.  :)

Hey ladies,

Queen, it's sad about all the kids doing crimes that only adults used to do.  Last Sunday night the town I live in had 5 shootings in one night with one person killed.  The very next night there was another shooting and that victim is in critical condition.  And the shootings were all done by teens.  It's like they have no regard for life.  I don't know how to ever change that either. 

Andrea, thanks for the kind words.  I'm sorry you're going to be bleeding for 3 weeks.  That's gotta majorly suck.  I'm keeping fingers and legs crossed that they got it all.  Be sure to keep us posted.  Oh, about cravings...no, I don't get them.  I just remember the withdrawal and how awful that was.  I don't think I could physically make it through another one (withdrawal).  Truthfully, I think it would kill me. 

It's sunny here today, but cold.  It's only 44 out right now, but in a couple days it's supposed to warm up into the 60's.  Yep, winter is on the way, Queen.  I don't like it either. 

For Christmas, my sister in Phoenix is flying me out there for a week.  I'm a little nervous; I haven't been on a plane in 16 years.  I'm going to get some Dramamine 'cause I get motion sickness pretty easy.  I hope the airline doesn't lose any of my luggage.  I'll be flying from here (South Bend) to Detroit to Phoenix.  That's the plan for now anyway.

Nothing else going on.  New class tonight, that's about it.  You ladies have a good day.

As for the rest of my GFs, I hope you're all hunkered down and staying warm tonight.  Only a few of us can still enjoy warm weaather.  Brrrrrrr....!

I miss Iceman, he is out of town again tonight and I am still at his place from last Sunday.  I may never return to my own home, lol!   :D

hello there

cindy - its HOT here! last night was terrible, get under the covers and u burn, get out and mosquitos eat u alive, and i have the horrible scars to prove it.  i hav ea mosquito net but sometimes my arms poke out or i get out and forget to tuck myself back in properly or something.

betty - congrats with the A! and the anniversary. three years is a long time, im proud of you.

andrea - im glad the surgery went ok. i hope the results come back ok. i've never had to fill in paperwork that required my HIV status, and im not sure if i would fill it in. but i suppose it gets easier the more u do it, kind of like disclosing to people.

queen - too bad about sexy. guys with hang ups are a bit difficult, all that work trying to prove yourself. need the patience of a saint :) Did u call the new guy yet?

Keeping - sorry about your back, i hope its better now.

i've just found an old high school friend on facebook and im so happy. i was wondering and wondering where she was.  she's still here in zim but in a different city.  facebook can be so depressing for me sometimes when i see how people are all married with kids and living in better countries doing so well for themselves.  feel like a loser sometimes. but hey we cant all have everything.
shyguy came to see me on monday at work, honestly he's asking for it...

Afternoon ladies,

Cin, today it's getting into the low 60's; much different from yesterday when it was in the low 40's.  We had a little snow here Sunday night, of course all melted now. 

Tendai, is there no way you can keep the misquitos out of where you live without having to stay inside the netting?  Girl, I swear.  I don't know how you keep your sanity.  About other people being married etc., just because you're not does not make you a loser.  If that were true, then most of us would be losers also.  You have made a career for yourself and you hang tough through everything that happens to you.  You're a winner in my book.

I'm waiting for my therapist to get here, which should happen in about 25 minutes.  I'm running a bit behind.  A friend of mine called this morning and we ended up talking for an hour.  I haven't had time to take a shower yet; oh well.

Last night's class went alright.  The teacher is scattered and she admits it.  She said she teaches 16 classes at four different universities, most of them online.  I have a little bit of homework to do before next week.  Tonight's class is "Human Sexuality."  I've had the teacher before and I really like him.  Other than that, nothing else happening.  You ladies have a good day.

Happy Halloween everyone. It's been about 6 months since I last posted here. I log on a read a post or two occasionally. I'm seeing a lot of new names and I think I name change or two. Maybe some of you remember me.

When I come here and read I know that I should come here more. A little more than a year after diagnosis and I still feel like I don't know enough to get what I'm reading here sometimes. I guess its an ongoing process.

Since I last posted I have started a new job, separated from my husband and started casually seeing a guy from my past. We were always close to disclosure to him was almost easy. I can tell him anything...except how I really feel about him. (Stupid girly feelings) He is totally cool with my diagnosis, very supportive and has went out of his way to learn about HIV. If only life would let us be more than casual. (sigh)

My last test results were upsetting to me. My VL rose and my CD4 dropped to 362. I am all about avoiding meds for as long as possible to I was really bummed. I told myself I would do all I could to hopefully bring my CD4 numbers back up then I came down with something that I am still trying to get over.

Other than being sick and only working part time for now, life is pretty good. I am way less stressed and definitely happier since the separation. IMO that's a big step.

Hope all are well. I saw that many had been coming down with colds. Congrats to Drag on the wedding and Cindy I was so happy to see the Iceman still in your posts.

Have a great day everyone.

Hey ladies,

Cin, have fun cuddling with Ice.

Andrea, any pics of you in your costume?

Confused, if you had your labs done when you were ill, then I wouldn't be real overly concerned about your numbers.  Give it another lab or two to see if there's a trend, or if it improves.  The T's might bounce back and the viral load go back down when you're well.  I'm glad your life seems more calm. 

I went out to eat with a friend of mine this evening.  And this afternoon I got all my homework done for my two classes.  Tomorrow night NA is having a chili supper, speaker and a dance.  I probably won't stay for the dance, but a friend of mine is speaking, so I want to hear that.  She's got like 16 or 17 years clean.  Nothing else.  Have a good night.

Some will want to put it off because its a change in lifestyle. Remembering to take meds ect. Taking the pills makes having HIV more real. Others may be concerned with the toxicity of the meds.
For some it could be a financial burden. I'm sure there are a million answers to the question.

Hey ladies,

Damn, where is everyone at? 

Andrea, Wendy answered the question pretty good.  There's lots of reasons people don't want to start.

Wendy, how are you doing?  What's up in your world?

I went to the Goodwill today 'cause it is 50% off day.  I got three shirts.  Now I have an hour to kill before I go to the NA thing.  I'm loaning a friend of mine (the girl who's speaking) my car, since I'm driving my friend's Toyota.  The girl I'm loaning the car to has had some financial trouble and her car got repossessed.  I told her as long as she pays for the insurance, she can use it.  If I get another car at the end of this month, I'm just going to let her have it.  It saves me the trouble of trying to figure out what to do with it.

Nothing else to report.  You ladies have a good evening.

I don't know where everyone is but I sure miss you all!

BT- It seems like it is just you and me!  :) I would post a picture of me in my costume but I am just too fat. I have been on Nutri System and lost about 15 lbs and then stopped. I know I have to exercise but I just don't want to.

Wendy- Nice to hear from you. I hope everything is ok.

Well this weekend I did absolutely NOTHING! All I wanted to do was lay around. I did my laundry and just barely did my lesson plans. This week is 5th grades week to have them checked and I just don't care. I still have a little cough and now I am sore from the coughing. I just can't get it out. I have constant wheezing...another trip to the doctor  :( I am so ready for vacation!

Have a good night!

hie ladies

had an ok weekend. saw an old friend from school but it was late and i wanted to sleep so we didnt spend that much time together. apart from that i shut away watching tv. really should get out more, if it werent so tedious with transport problems and all

viv - i'd want to delay taking meds coz im scared of the side effects.  plus i'd want to start when our economy settles down and drugs are easily available.

Hi!!!! I thought I'd just drop in really quick.  I hope I will have time to respond to everyone this evening.  Things have been really busy on my end.  I went by my doc today.  I decided to start treatment early.  I decided to go with an Isentress/Truvada combo.  The only thing that worries me with that one is that it is so new that they don't know whether it causes birth defects or not.  I figured that since children are at least several months off, I'd get started on them now and wait for some more info on it.  It seems like a great combo. 

I'm worried because my SO is really slowing around about getting tested. He knows he has to get tested, but is still nervous about it.   He wants to use a home kit rather than go into the doctor's office or go through some anonymous testing.  He ordered a kit online, but it hasn't arrived yet.  Not knowing is really killing me.  My doc told me it is harder for a man to get it from a woman, so I am hopeful he is negative.  Still, if it were me, I would want to know right away instead of being in this terrible limbo state!  He says that "in his mind" he believes he is positive, but yet and still he is not doing anything about it.  He is talking about which doctor he wants to go to if he's positive, so I'm hoping he just needs a little time.

In happier news, I will be moving in with him in December, so hopefully when I am there full time it will be easier to nag him about it if he hasn't done anything about it yet. 
Tested positive on September 11, 2008
