Looking for poz women in chronic pain
« on: April 05, 2010, 09:43:16 AM »
Tim Horn forwarded the following email to me and asked me to post it here in the Women's forum.


Hi folks, I hope you're all well--this is Tim Murphy from POZ (poz.com), the HIV/AIDS magazine. I'm doing a story on (HIV-related or not) chronic pain in HIV-positive people and looking to profile (and photograph!) an HIV+ woman who deals with this, whether the pain is directly HIV-related or not.

I'm looking for someone okay with using their real name and being photographed, trying to find someone within the week. I need to find someone outside of NYC! Would you pass this along to anyone you think might fit the bill, or even to a few contacts who you think might know someone who does, and have them e-mail me?

I'd MUCH appreciate it. Wishing you all a happy Easter/Passover/spring/Health-care bill passage.

Best,

Tim

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

What do you mean by cronic pain? I have a bad back and cannot stand long, sometimes I have spasms and can't move,  I have had surgery on my disc, pain blocks and on painkillers subscribed .but i don't like being doped up, so I choose not to take the painkillers. I also have arthritis in my lower back, which is where the pain is.i wake up every day with pain in my lower back, I have to move around a lot, and stretching seems to help some, but the pain is always there, if I lift anything, or stand on my feet too long, I have bad spasms. before I urinate and after I have back pain, always going to the doctor , thinking its bladder or kidneys, but always nothing wrong, just back pain. This is the reason I cannot work any longer.

Hi Netta,

Chronic refers to something that continues or persists over an extended period of time. It sounds like the pain you experience is indeed chronic.

Are you going to get in touch with Mr Murphy?

I wonder if this involves travel?  With the avascular necrosis, I have pain every day.  I just can't travel.

You'd have to get in touch with Mr Murphy to find out. I only have the information in the email to go on. I have a feeling though that he would travel to you, but I can't say for certain.
