What's up with these Zombie threads?   ???


Wolfter reckons it is directly linked to the End of Days.

I reckon he may be right. :o

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

It's too early for me to consider this. So far, it has made me think more about my future.

In the first days of grief, however, I found by accident an excerpt of a book about Spiritism talking about the fate of a man who had HIV. It said that HIV was not a punishment, but a trial for a person to go through in order to become a better person and feel compassion for his fellow human beings.

I don't really believe in these religious ideas, but reading it did make me feel better. I do feel having HIV gives me the urge to be a better person. It puts us in such a frail position that we realize how stupid some things are and that we stress so much about.

Judging someone does not define them, it defines you. 

True peace is not merely the absence of war, it is the presence of justice.

Well, now that its resurrected.

For me it can go either way but the few months on sustiva definitely tipped it into the short fuse arena.

I'd say it popped some of my illusions and Im not sure that's always a good thing.
