Finding an Indian friend
« on: May 30, 2007, 10:47:09 AM »
hi all,
 I have been positive for last 2 yrs and on medication. The nos are good as cd4 is 850 n vl undetectable. However sometimes I do hit roadblock and do not know what to do next? I have posted here on forum and got valuable advices from time to time.But thee are certain localised problems in India like availability of nearby doctors esp in private sector. the medicines , and I do not know who to discuss with.As hiv in India is a big taboo and it is very difficult to talk freely with healthcare providers as they could be knowing you and then it is dead end for you both socially and personally. In this background , Iam seaching for an Indian friend with whom i can discuss things of mutual concerns relating to hiv.

 Through this forum , I wish to find someone positive from India to talk about local issues impacting us hivers.so anyone please drop a pm who is aware about various things whch i raised.

Dan J.

There was a forum member from India here at one time but I have not seen him around in a very long time.
We are here to help in anyway we can.

I wish you the best,

This was posted not long ago here. it is a demonstration in Delhi of AIDS activists, some of whom are positive. If you make a you tube account, you can send a message to the person who posted this, and hopefully he or she can hook you up.


Take care & good luck,

Hi alerthari

PM me and we can exchange email addresses. I'm not in India but have several poz friends there.

Her finely-touched spirit had still its fine issues, though they were not widely visible. Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.
