Privacy Warning:  Please realize that these forums are open to all, and are fully searchable via Google and other search engines. If you are HIV positive and disclose this in our forums, then it is almost the same thing as telling the whole world (or at least the World Wide Web). If this concerns you, then do not use a username or avatar that are self-identifying in any way. We do not allow the deletion of anything you post in these forums, so think before you post.

  • All members of these forums are, by default, not considered to be licensed medical providers. If otherwise, users must clearly define themselves as such.

  • We ask all forums members to provide references for health/medical/scientific information they provide, when it is not a personal experience being discussed. Please provide hyperlinks with full URLs or full citations of published works not available via the Internet. Additionally, all forums members must post information which are true and correct to their knowledge.

I'm pretty sure the HIV stork is any guy high on meth at your local bathhouse/listing himself on manhunt.

Reading, that shit is for the birds.  I'm with you, it must be an HIV stork.  We should cross post this to Am I so they'll all know how infection happens.

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

I like that.. "Hi I'm Jan and I'm HIV plus"

You can stop now Miss P, you are just wasting your time and damaging your nails.

How 'bout if I just rub Norvir-induced fecal mucosa all over this shitty excuse of a poll/thread instead? I've spent all day doing laundry with stain removal. Well, that and the delicious slice of Red Velvet Cake I just had. OK, since I'm a svelte Queen I only had HALF a slice.

I don't have anyone to talk to about it or that even asks, so my first reply to the title of this thread is that "I don't".

I have had a few people recently say to me that I was so positive, so I was thinking I could use that with a nice big smile on my face

 "I'm SO positive."
Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important

The heaviest thing you can carry is a grudge..

One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

One thing you can't recycle is wasted time.
