Looking forward to it.

I was going to send out the calendar invite today for Saturday's meeting but spending the day in A&E (ER) with Caelan, so I'll send out the invite tomorrow instead.

That was fun! Not that I haven't enjoyed the chats prior but we had a crowd this time and that was great!

OMG. so I told Larry that besides being PI day there was another holiday on my birthday. His reply was that I didn't usually give him chocolate or flowers on Valentine's Day so he didn't think that steak or blowjobs were really going to be options on some made up holiday either. LOL  ;D ;D I pointed out that I should still get birthday sex because it'll be, well duh, my birthday, so that'll still work out in my favor.  8)  plus there will be pie. mmm I want a cherry pie for my birthday.

hey numbersguy, what's your cat's name? :) I kept seeing one running around in the background.

I got asked by another forum member what we generally talk about during these meets, so I said I would post a quick note here.

So most of the time, it's catching up, talking about life, how we're all doing, dating, pets, renovations, work, study and family etc., but sometimes HIV does come up, or someone has a question about treatment, developments and those kinds of things.

I think that's a fair summary, but if anyone feels I missed anything, please chime in.
Looking forward to the next session on Feb 18th.

I've got stuff to talk about.  :D We lost our doctor, well HIV Specialist NP; gained a new IV Specialist NP; and got blood results (oh noes! I had a blip! LOL plus Larry and I have the same cd4 and cd8 %s and the same cd4/cd8 ratio). Aberdeen weights 27lbs now - and got punished for the first time.

Same here  :)

So far, we have eight people confirmed, and one maybe for tomorrow's meeting. Looking forward to seeing new people join and catch up with the group, it feels like the Jan meet was ages ago.

Every time our chats span such a wild range of topics.  :D  and don't we run the gamut of time spent dealing with HIV? From one month to forty years.

It was great seeing some newer diagnosed people today. I hoped you got some questions answered, some support, and just didn't feel so alone with all this. If you didn't get a chance to say or ask what you would have liked to talk about, you could always fire off a message to Jim (hope you don't mind me throwing you under the bus like this, Jim. LOL) and I'm sure he'd work it into the next conversation.

If I was dying of thirst and the only drink around was Budweiser, I would drink my own piss instead.

Oh I like a good margarita but then again they kick my butt way too quickly.  Also could be why I only drink them with a friend when we get them by the pitcher.

But also, like the others we sure went all over the place with our conversation but just felt like friends getting together to catch up on what's been going on.

Loved the short discussion about "bovine immunodeficiency virus"
