Living With HIV / Re: "HOPE DIES LAST"
« Last post by Tonny2 on Yesterday at 08:59:15 pm »



             ojo.           @JimAllen, thank you, my friend for Reading sometimes even long timers need to hear from others because sometimes I feel like throwing the towel. But it is what it is we had to do what we had to do if we want to keep having a good quality of life. I really appreciate you lines, and of course I will keep you guys postedÖ Ha

                ojo.          Sorry, sorry for the question, did he get us a settlement and his job?. If he just got a settlement thatís not good. My humble opinionÖ Hugs

I wish this claimant had received more that just 100k so they would have felt more of a sting where it counts!
i feel that about many legal judgments. Corporations and organizations are rarely actually "punished" by civil judgments and any policy changes are often short-lived

Def progress! TN is soooo backwards, but their cops are usually friendly. I had a good experience with one of their state troopers, who almost arrested me back while I was in high school.

Do I Have HIV? / Re: Terrified I have HIV - oral + blood from POS partner

Iím not sure I appreciate your tone

I can certainly live with that.

So I warned you not to post about this again, it's now a 28-day ban*. I'm not going to pretend what you posted here was an HIV risk or needs testing as that would be a disservice to you and the community.

at the end of the day

No! At the end of the day, you had no HIV risk, no drama needed. Someone gave you a blowjob, who owes you absolutely nothing, kept their private medical information, which is no concern and has zero impact on you, private...you went to a clinic who correctly told you it's not an HIV risk, I agree 100% with them.

Nothing bad happened to you, and I'm not here to pretend otherwise. I get that you also did not like the clinic's assessment or attitude but I agree with them.

Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result or no-risk situation, will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). If you continue to post excessively after one Time Out, you may be given a second Time Out which will last eight weeks. There is no third Time Out - it is a permanent ban. The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.

Asked and answered already. I did read your post three times before answering that you had no HIV risk.

Get over it, talk to a therapist if needed but move on with your life.

I do wish you well but don't post about this again.

Iím not sure I appreciate your tone. I was lied to at the end of the day. I will report back after my test if it comes back positive.

Use condoms & PrEP, get vaccinated against HPV, Hepatitis A & B and get an STI screening yearly.

Saliva is hostile towards HIV breaking down the receptors needed to infect.

Perfect. You had no HIV exposure, no risk, no PEP needed.

Receiving a blowjob lacks the conditions required for acquiring HIV; a bit of blood, graze on your penis changes nothing, thus, it makes sense that after 40+ years of this pandemic in terms of BJs, there hasn't been a single documented case of HIV transmission to an insertive partner (the person being "sucked"), and you will not be the worlds first.

Move on with your life.

Here's what you need to know to reduce your HIV risks:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse correctly and consistently, with no exceptions. Consider talking to your healthcare provider about PrEP as an additional layer of protection against HIV

Keep in mind that some sexual practices described as safe in terms of acquiring HIV still pose a risk for other easier-acquired STIs. So please do get tested at least yearly for STIs, including but not limited to HIV, and more frequently if condomless intercourse occurs.

Also, note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms; testing is the only way to know.

Kind regards

Jim

Thank you Jim for the kind words. The clinic prescribed me PrEp.

Can you be so sure that there was no HIV risk? Like I said, there seemed to be blood on my penis and in their mouth. What if their blood got into the graze on my penis?
