Jenny said when she was just five years old
My parents are gonna be the death of us all
Two TV sets and two Cadillac cars--
Ain't gonna help us at all

Then one fine mornin' she puts on a New York station
She don't believe what she heard at all
She started dancin' to that fine fine music
You know her life was saved by Rock 'n' Roll

Despite all the computations
You could just dance to a rock 'n' roll station
And it was alright!

Hiya

Even if she had athletes foot or some sores it would not pose an HIV risk to you.

Thanks Jim

I just got worried that she could have had athletes foot or sores in between toes I didnt see under the water; and scrapes or superficial cuts I could have had on my fingers.
Thanks

Do I Have HIV? / Re: Is it possible
« Último mensaje por Jim Allen en Hoy a las 08:59:00 am »
Hiya.

Relax, you didn't aquire HIV from caring for your aunt.

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

Keep in mind that some sexual practices described as ‘safe’ in terms of HIV might still pose a risk for transmission of other STI's, so please do get tested regularly and at least yearly for STI's including but not limited to HIV and test more frequently if unprotected intercourse occurs

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

Kind regards

Jim

Do I Have HIV? / Is it possible
« Último mensaje por Pricklypear2021 en Hoy a las 06:30:50 am »
Dear advisors

Ive read soo many threads. Here is my story. My aunt , very old, in her seventies, was very ill. At that time, docs had not diagnised her and we were all not aware of her positive  staus. She had very long toenails. Her feet were dry and peeling. Like any normal peeling, no sores. I decided to cut her nails. While cutting them, with a nail clipper, I held her feet for balance while cutting. Her feet were sweaty but I didnt mind. I cut all her toenails. Fine, no blood or anything oozing. Anyway, after I finished that. I put warm water in a basin with dettol and liquid soap. I asked her to put her feet there. I was basically massaging her feet , even inbetween her toes while they were in the warm water. Just a footcare for her as she was very unwell. A few months she was diagnosed hiv+ with low cd4. She is fine now. But I always worried that what if I contracted the virus while cutting her nails and massaging her feet. Is it possible? Am not sexually active, and my last test before this incident was conclusively negative. Am just paranoid. Is it possible to be infected this way?

Do I Have HIV? / Re: Protected anal sex
« Último mensaje por Jim Allen en Ayer a las 11:15:00 pm »
Hiya,

Using expired condoms, in general, is not a great idea as the risk of breaking increases but I don't see an HIV issue from this specific event.

Regarding the oral sex, presuming it was a blowjob, receiving a blowjob is no HIV to you.

As for giving a blowjob, the mouth generally lacks a route for HIV to infect, and saliva also acts to neutralize HIV by damaging the receptors needed to infect human cells. It's such a minute risk that we don't recommend specifically testing over it, just test whenever normally next due routine screening.

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

Keep in mind that some sexual practices described as ‘safe’ in terms of HIV might still pose a risk for transmission of other STI's, so please do get tested regularly and at least yearly for STI's including but not limited to HIV and test more frequently if unprotected intercourse occurs

My partner Ed, is going to get his booster of Pfizer tomorrow morning at 9:45 at Walgreens

He went on line a little while ago, downloaded the forms, so that the process can be sped up tomorrow instead of filing the firms out at Walgreens.

Do I Have HIV? / Protected anal sex
« Último mensaje por Pleasehlpme en Ayer a las 06:36:14 pm »
Hey! Question, overly
Paranoid but I had anal sex with a guy with a condom. Saw that it expired 4/2021 but now it’s 10/21 but I used it thinking it’s okay, lubed it up really nice. After 8 secs I was like, nah it’s expired and can break. When I put it on it was nice and snugg, pulled the tip no issues. When I pulled out (only inserted twice in his fine ass :)) then I took it off and still nice and tight and no visible issues. Just continued oral. Is this a risk of HIV?

I Just Tested Poz / Re: Introduction - Bucklandbury
« Último mensaje por CircularNatural en Ayer a las 10:47:00 am »
I have read the thread more thoroughly and have a few comments.

To Bucklandbury:
I believe that things will get better with time with you, as Jim Allen and the rest well said. You are recently diagnosed and are probably panicking (like I am doing since I also got my dx just a few months ago). Anxiety is known to amplify feelings and sensations, it's also normal to feel hyper-aroused and over-attentive to your body for now. I'm sure that as you go through this rough first part of your treatment, it will get better, especially once you don't need any of the prophylactic antibiotics and extra medications.

Have you read or tried accupuncture? It might help with pain issues.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5359694/

Also, you might want to read about capsaicin creams. These have spicy red pepper extract (capsaicin is the molecule which provokes the heat reaction to this kind of spicy spices), and they are also used topically to help with paresthesia and such.
https://www.webmd.com/pain-management/what-is-capsaicin

In my case, I'm finding help with pregabalin at 150mg/day (2 capsules separated by 12 hours) mostly for generalized anxiety disorder and health anxiety (I suffered from these before and they have evidently worsened after the dx). In the US, pregabalin is not approved for anxiety issues, but you could probably get a prescription for other related issues such as chronic pain / neuropathy / fibromyalgia which are valid indications.
Pregabalin is thought to act by blocking calcium channels that are related to various neurotransmission routes, diminishing their hyper-activation / overstimulation / by raising GABA (the inhibitory neurotransmitter by excellence).
In normal doses, it is not known to cause any serious side effects, maybe a little sedation or light dizziness which is dose-related. In my case, I can feel myself a little bit hazy right after I take the pill, but it also alleviates my nervousness / slight panicky feeling, so it's desirable up to some point.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7174704/

Hope things turn out better in a few months from here (I'm sure it will!)
Take much care and try to take it easy for a while, maximizing relaxation activities and anything that might improve your well-being for now, "one day at a time".

Big hugs!
