LTS Statistics...
« on: Today at 08:01:42 AM »
I have read one article stating how many LTS individuals live in the USA today....but the numbers slipped from my memory.

I am only "labeled" HIV+ with 26 years of this virus in my body.

Is there a need or a drive for an LTS person to be classified:

What type of percentages would these various classifications reflect of our LTS community?

I would also love to know how many of us are partnered, widowed, men versus woman, divorced, how many divorces (lol silently), alone, working,....etc....

Does anybody really care?

After my migration into the ObamaCare system...my health is still good...but now I am questioning if I can even afford healthcare even though I have survived for so many years.

What other kind of statistics would be fruitful for us in knowing?

LTS per state....I would love a comparison of of LTS stats with other countries around the world.

At times I have "wished" that I have been diagnosed with AIDS, which defeats the real fight for an individual to stay healthy.

Have any of you determined how much your meds and medical tests have cost or what the value of the drugs that flowed through our system?

I would love to expand on this topic.

How does confidentiality affect us NOW?

You are never alone...and if you start to feel lonely....search me out...or grab your cat!
