Pozhope, I hope this works....I created a "Wordle" that visualizes all the words used in this post:

http://www.wordle.net/show/wrdl/1133956/%22One_Word%22_by_AMF_members

...I will test the link and if it doesn't work will attach a screen-print.

 :)

Steve

note: I pasted all the words into the "wordle" site that generates the image but can't guarantee they all made it into the final product.....I think they did but apologies if the generator dropped "your" word.

Today the word is "Explosive D" but that's because I've had this every fucking morning for the past 10 days, and just today figured out it was because I had the brilliant idea of using Xylitol in place of sugar so that I could peel off 5-8 lbs to appease my sense of vanity.  Unfortunately when I bought this I didn't realize that diarrhea is a common side effect, and I guess combined with Norvir it was triple the effect.

Philly, I figured that at some point someone would have to use "diarrhoea" as the word of the day :)

Successful!

because from life's perspective, this virus is incredibly successful at perpetuating its lineage

because that is what my meds are when keeping the virus under control. They are not perfect but if it wasn't for their success I would most probably be dead by now

because it is what we, people living with this virus, all are. By living one more day with this predicament

because it is what human beings will be one day when, like many times before, they will find a way to eliminate the virus from one's body

Hi all,

My vote is for FOREVER, today. Tomorrow it most likely will be something else.

I would also like to say I keep ALL of my friends, lovers, acquaintances and strangers known to have died of AIDS or any other disease or accident alive in my mind, memories, heart, soul or whatever you would like to perceive "it" as.

Good wishes to all,

death
1997 is when I found out, being deathly ill. I had to go to the hospital due to extreme headache and fever. I fell coma like,  two months later weighing 95 pounds and in extreme pain and awoke to knowledge of Pancreatis, Cryptococcal Meningitis, Thrush,Severe Diarea,  Wasting, PCP pneumonia. No eating, only through tpn. Very sick, I was lucky I had good insurance with the company I worked for. I was in the hospital for three months that time. 
(2010 Now doing OK cd4=210  VL= < 75)
I have become resistant to many nukes and non nukes, Now on Reyataz, , Combivir. Working well for me not too many side effects.  I have the wasting syndrome, Fatigue  . Hard to deal with but believe it or not I have been through worse. Three Pulmonary Embolism's in my life. 2012 520 t's <20 V load

Overwhelming
Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
Calvin Coolidge
