So our next meeting in August will be the first anniversary of facilitating these calls.

Hard to imagen a year has already passed. Initially setting this up, I mainly expected it to be newbies with questions about starting treatment etc. Although we have supported people new to living with HIV during the year and discussed living with HIV & HIV news on every call,  these meetings have been a platform to discuss life and challenges far bigger than HIV, and it has been a platform to offer each other support with a good dose of humour.

We have laughed, cried, and supported each other during the year. Thank you to everyone who attended, but special thanks to;  @leatherman, for helping me start these meetings and co-hosting them over the year, and @numbersguy82, kentfrat1783 & Fabio for being regular members & the support over the year.

Looking forward to the next meeting, and sign up if you haven't signed up yet; I think it's a great platform to share a problem and gain support, but its also a good laugh, and we all need that in life.

OMG. has it been a year?!? It sure doesn't feel like it's been that long. It must be the great company on the call.

Initially setting this up, I mainly expected it to be newbies with questions about starting treatment etc. Although we have supported people new to living with HIV during the year and discussed living with HIV & HIV news on every call,  these meetings have been a platform to discuss life and challenges far bigger than HIV, and it has been a platform to offer each other support with a good dose of humour.
I thought it would be a lot of newbies too. maybe even too many? But it became a core group (most of my IRL groups ended up this way) with a few other members and newbies dropping in to visit every once in a while. And you can't forget our family members (humans and furry) who have gotten in way of the cams every once in a while.

I look forward to these calls as if I’m meeting with old friends who share so much in common. Our diagnosis brought us together, but I like to believe that we’ve forged a genuine bond of friendship. I can’t imagine not hearing about your crazy adventures in photography, Michael’s dogs, Kent’s devotion to his health and world travels. Oh and Fabio always has an exciting story to share as well! Looking forward to the next one! Cheers and hope everyone is enjoying their summers!

I still can't believe it's been a year.  Then again I did miss a few.  :(

The next meeting is in two weeks. Saturday the 2nd of September.

Topics this week included; HIV Care, Stigma, Ageing, Sex, Death, Instagram, Fitness, Movies and TV shows.


Although these calls do touch on serious topics, they have developed into a more lighthearted and social meeting, and the point was raised about the potential need to have more focused peer support. So a couple of members will be working on this, stay tuned for updates over the next few weeks.
