What a fantastic call per usual. Iím not sure about everyone else, but I know meeting with some likeminded people and just commiserating, or rather laughing for a few hours, has been highly beneficial for me and provided a much needed relief.

Jim and Michael, you are both wonderful people and, more so, a wealth of knowledge. Itís a shame more people donít tune in to these calls to learn, laugh, or just take a breather from real life for a bit.

Until next time my friends!

I always love catching up with y'all. I'll probably have to jump off close to noon though. It just depends on how early any of the pool party guests show up. ;)

No prob. Don't worry, if you leave the call early we will not spend the rest of the time talking about you...

Looking forward to seeing you all as well.

The meeting is Sunday this time round as Saturday is the pride parade in Dublin and Avril asked me to take her. I admit I do like going as I get to scare the haters.

wait?!? Sunday? Cool! The pool party is Saturday! any talking about me can be done to my face. :D

I do like going as I get to scare the haters.
I certainly admire your allyship. Being brave and bold standing against the discrimination of others makes you a class act, my friend.

Not to mention, as someone else who has spoken out about issues, your combativeness is hot. ;)  :-* :P

Pride was excellent. Pissed down with rain but it was happy and vibrant. Only had to say "Fuck off or die" twice this year so really good 👍

The monthly social call was inappropriate and insane as always and I loved seeing everyone.

Topics discussed: Personal grooming & waxing, Pride, Aging, Travel, Sex, Fitness, Being positive a year post diagnosis and finally the relaunch of peer support calls.

Stay tuned as we will have updates soon on the relaunch of the peer support calls.

It's always GREAT catching up with y'all!

We got that nice bonus of having a member coming back after a while to catch us up on how well things are going. When you're first diagnosed, it's always a shock and it takes a little bit of time to wrap your head around it, get onto treatment, and start getting those good lab results coming back. Congratulations on your good results and don't be a stranger! We meet up every month. :)

I just wanted to emphasize that part of the call because I know I tell a lot of newbies that it does get better....and I know that's hard to hear, much less believe, when you're in the middle of it. But I've just seen too many people get through learning to deal with HIV and going on to live great long lives with daily ARVs. These days I just believe that when you're diagnosed with HIV you need to know it's not the 90s or even the 2000s. ARVs will save your life and health, and life is going to go on with whatever YOU make of it.

Clearly, the weekend pool party and this call started me off on a positive note this week. LOL :D :D Have a great week, y'all!
