a whole lot of peer support.
-ugh. health care in America sucks.....and that's when you have access to it. and mental health care is bad too...even when you have limited access to it.

some American politics and European culture
-a lot of racism and a lot of tribalism going on these days.

a mix of LTS chat and discussions about simply living with HIV for a long time.
-thank goodness, the old days are the "OLD" days, amirite? ;D

laughs and good times all around, like usual.  ;)  ;D ;D

HIV Stigma & studies study under healthcare providers outcome
I know I commented about this report in the other thread; but thanks for sharing that. The whole thing was really interesting. Quite frankly, I think the reason I trusted the results and liked it so much was because of some of the "bad" responses. If the results had been that everyone was hunky-dory with all things HIV, I'd have known the study didn't ask the right questions, didn't question enough people, or wasn't confidential enough that people could honestly answer. The results though show what PLHIV know: outside of HIV clinics, healthcare professional aren't very knowledgeable about HIV; some healthcare personnel are under-educated in general about cleanliness and precautions much less HIV; and some are just bigoted jerks.

Spiders.
Ick. ick. ick.
Our property backs up to some woods with a small creek running along the side. I run into spiders and webs all the damn time! After we left our call today, the doggos wanted out and I wanted to smoke. 8) Stepping on the deck by the pool, I ran through a spiderweb - and the large writing spider I knocked loose ran across my head. :o :o :o But, no bites and only one manly scream as I thrashed about to knock the spider off. No neighbors were around (and I'll leave the screaming part out when I tell this story to Larry. LOL) so it was all good.

Indeed. I also thought it was very interesting and that it confirmed the experiences PLHIV have flagged for years when dealing with non-HIV specific healthcare providers, some of them are horribly outdated although somewhat understandable and at the end of the day healthcare providers are just people, and some people are just assholes.

And Xena, Warrior Princess
"In a time of ancient gods, warlords and kings, a land in turmoil cried out for a hero. She was Xena, a mighty princess forged in the heat of battle. The power, the passion, the danger. Her courage will change the world!"

So you've seen my Xena a few times (blk/wht border collie/spaniel mix); but this is the old gang (my second pack of cockers). That's Gabrielle, Joxer (OMG, the doggo was a doofus but super sweet), Zeus and Aries.

That's me at the pool in Ohio back in the early-00s, barely not dying of AIDS with my dyed-red hair. lolz
and Joxer, Aries, Zeus and Gabby way back in the back not caring about whatever the boyz are doing. LOL

Yeah, it's been a while. Plenty going on, including that I had my balls fondled by a stranger last week. Anyhow, will tell you all about it on the call. Hope you are all doing okay as well.

Really looking forward to upcoming Sundays meeting and can't wait to see you all

I think between the monthly meetings and the more recent topic focused bi weekly sessions have been great and seeing you face to face has enormously beneficial for me at least and I hope for you as well.

I've enjoyed these calls a lot too!

And after missing the last call, it seems like I haven't seen y'all in forever, so I'm really looking forward to Sunday :D

            ojo.         Hi there!!…I’m sorry missing another call, specially you guys talk about dating because I’m looking for a date.
Unfortunately, my 96 years old uncle fell down and ended up in the hospital with six broken ribs and this morning my mother (her brother) and I went to see him. Fortunately, he is doing fine just with some pain as you guys can imagine. I hope that’s for the next call, I cross my fingers, I will be able to make it.
.. on my first call I just got to meet Jim and Mike I hope and I can meet some more members of this community…hugs

Ps. I wonder if in those calls that are speaking Spanish members

        ojo.          Hi again!… hi Fred on this thread, I don’t remember if he was Kent or Jim talking about my sisters cancer, thanks for asking, fortunately she’s doing pretty good so good that she is right now in Cancun on vacation. Now after her radiation treatment, the next step is the reconstruction of her breast. He got to be so traumatic for her to see herself mutilated, but like I said, she’s very strong and following doctors instructions. Thanks again.
