Welcome


Welcome to the POZ Community Forums, a round-the-clock discussion area for people with HIV/AIDS, their friends/family/caregivers, and others concerned about HIV/AIDS.  Click on the links below to browse our various forums; scroll down for a glance at the most recent posts; or join in the conversation yourself by registering on the left side of this page.

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.

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.

Hi Derick.

Are you living with HIV? If so, are you new to living with HIV and how are you feeling? Are you on treatment, and how is that going?

Hi Jim! Yes I am, since 2019, Iím on biktarvy, and honestly I feel great, Iím
Not depressed or anything, I rarely think about it. Just trying to take care of myself more than ever. But the bad feelings come sometimes, like in waves. :)

Well, I think it's a good thing. HIV isn't the end of the world, take your meds and move on. There are far more shitty things & conditions that can and will happen to us in life, HIV medically is easy with treatment.
