Thatís not unusual things to see around Dublin city  centre, surprised you didnít see someone shooting up drugs too!

I usually avoid going into the city centre if I can at all. My wife insists on me going with her to these Asian supermarkets around Moore St area, and always in for a bit of entertainment like you describe down that way! Lol

All these stories from your that give us a hope...
Is the exception of the rule not the rule, correct?
Or is it the rule with the modern meds.?

It's not just individual stories, it's data, included in all the studies & publications in the sticky thread to back them up.

I had before contracting the virus some two small lymphs touchable in my left side of neck...and one small but bit bigger than each on the left...

Now they are a 10% bigger , all three, touchable , not seen and not as big as they were during my acute phase in May.

Go see your healthcare provider. In the last few months you have seen plenty of doctors, get one of them to have a look. Could be nothing, like fat lumps or normal nodes that you have been annoying, but best have a doc check it.

Again here..

...... some two small lymphs touchable in my left side of neck...and one small but bit bigger than each on the left...

Now they are a 10% bigger 



Small and yet you are able to estimate a growth of 10% ?????   :-X

Again here..
Good evening how are all you?

I had before contracting the virus some two small lymphs touchable in my left side of neck...and one small but bit bigger than each on the left...

Now they are a 10% bigger , all three, touchable , not seen and not as big as they were during my acute phase in May.

Should I think it will become a lymphoma sometime ?
Because even before , it was always there...last ten or 12 years..

Forgot to inform you that during seroconversion I had some pain when moving my eyes totally left or right to the end and not see well from there .. maybe it was associated with the latent CMV that I had before contracting this.

Guys  ,see you and good night.
🙏🙏🙏🙏 God bless you all.

I have to tell you that without you all here I wouldn't be so well... Maybe you hear me not well but it's only six months having this with scary numbers ... So I need time.
But you cannot imagine how much you offered to me.

Before I take my 1st months results , I cannot explain how I kept myself from suicide , I was totally panicked and couldn't believe that my viral load could ever fall undetectable.

Jim , Matt, Mike , Leatherman grasshopper all of you sorry if I forgot someone , you saved me.

After experience, my lesson is this now..my knowledge I mean.
I lost my life wondering and worrying so much the first month, finally.

Guys , I thought a question now..
All these stories from your that give us a hope...
Is the exception of the rule not the rule, correct?
Or is it the rule with the modern meds.?

Bye guys...
Good night

No, COVID-19 Vaccines Will Not Give You AIDS

None of the available SARS-CoV-2 vaccines have been linked to increased risk of HIV acquisition or disease progression.
