Take the survey (please)....
« on: January 14, 2009, 11:02:48 AM »
Help POZ/AIDSmeds, the American Psychological Association (APA) and National Association for People with AIDS (NAPWA) help you!

The Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency (CARE) Act is the largest federal program dedicated to providing care and treatment for people living with HIV. The CARE Act has been hugely successful in helping HIV-positive people live longer, healthier and productive lives, but Congress must reauthorize it this year if it is to continue serving more than half a million people every year in the United States.

Many people living with HIV have psychological difficulties, including depression and substance abuse. APA and NAPWA want to ensure that important mental health services are well funded when the CARE Act is again reviewed by the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives in 2009. To ensure that our mental health needs are adequately addressed, POZ/AIDSmeds, APA and NAPWA are turning to you for input. Your participation in this survey will not only help improve services you may need. It will also help thousands of others living with HIV.

You do not need to identify yourself in this survey and all of your responses will remain anonymous.

Don't obsess over the wrong things.  Life isn't about your numbers, it isn't about this forum, it isn't about someone's opinion.  It's about getting out there and enjoying it.   I am a person with HIV - not the other way around.

I'll take the shamwow spokesguy too, as long as he doesn't try to sell me anything! He is cute!

About the survey, I had a therapist already, which made answering the questions kind of hard, because I did seek counseling for the diagnosis, but only by bringing it up with my person. I'm not sure if my answers properly reflected that.

LOL    Billy Mays is kinda hot......I agree with that!

But that mighty putty is a joke.  My best friend bought some to plug up a leak in a pipe to the water heater....it did NOTHING to stop it.   I am a threat to shop in the "as seen on TV" aisle in Wal-Mart...I have one of those razor sharpeners (works so-so) and one of those handles you stick to the wall in the shower.....

OK back to topic, everyone take the survey!
