brian needs a friend
« on: July 12, 2007, 12:10:26 AM »
brianthepupil@hotmail.com who is a member of pozmatch threatened to kill himself tonight, he has driving fines, supposedly incurred whilst on meds, and has been threatened with jail?....whilst I know I'm being snowed ,this man is a tortured soul. Hes been diagnosed 17 years and is on atripla, a total mess. I know we all have problems of our own but....any one who would consider just dropping someone who genuinely seems to be at the very least desperately unhappy a line, please do. I know we cant save everyone, and I KNOW people lie, but call me an idiot or too easily conned, this man seems to need our help
Modified to add, hes from georgia, says hes got no facilities locally for support? If I'm being totally thick and this guy has taken my good nature for granted and has taken the piss I'll be disappointed by my lack of judgement, and extremely annoyed...but we all deserve the benefit of the doubt at least once? I dont know what to do with this....thought I'd see what you all think?

This sounds tooooo familiar. I live in Atlanta , you know TRAFFIC HELL !!! Anyway, someone hit me and called the police, said I was drunk and so on. I blew and it was 0. So, then I did the motion test and the police claimed I flunked. I was taken down town and given a blood test. They found all kinds of "NAUGHTYS"in my blood. Even though it was a pharmacy where the drugs came from I STILL got in trouble. 2yrs later and $8500.00 to my attorney and everything was DISMISSED! Even though the BOZO who hit me actually caused the wreck. .... I later found out his car had NO damage. .... But REALLY , you must tell your friend not to drive wildly in Georgia. The police on the streets in the state of GA will take you to jail for nothing!!!

Give your friend some TIME. Maybe find him a GOOD attorney. Maybe someone who is passionate with HIV patients. But let him know you don't like being toyed with...

Laugh a lot / Live a lot / Love a lot!

I e-mailed Brian. I gave him info about Legal Aid in Atlanta. They are a compassionate group for AIDs patients here. I don't know if his address is in the city but, I gave him the phone number for AID ATLANTA and LEGAL AID.

I sure do hope he is okay and can find some help through these people.

 Brian needs more than a friend if he's threatening to kill himself.  It sounds like a cry for help and if you're in contact with him
suggest he seek counseling ASAP.  Also keep in mind no matter where you are... driving under the influence...  Carries a heavy
fine and possible jail time.  Regardless of whether its alcohol or prescription drugs (narcotics)...DUI or DWI is a serious charge
which requires the services of an attorney( pref errably not a public defender)

You should be commended for your concern and your wish to assist him but if he doesn't help himself there's very little you or
anyone else can do for him.  I'll be glad to send him an email of encouragement...and stop beating yourself up for having a big
heart.  It's OK to care.....Gee imagine what kind of world it would be if everybody did!

Well guys i appreciate all that were concerned. I made it through the roughest part and am FINALLY no longer all alone in this fight. I know i never was but i was in person. I have now found the most wonderful woman in the world and we got married the 2nd of this month. Anyway i WISH i ws snowing tigger but i WAS RAILROADED and convicted once already and it was for the awefully impairing combo of epzicom and reyataz. If any of yall know those drugs NEITHER impairs you. The only reason i was convicted was i was denied a lawyer and the judge allowed the 1 i did pay to withdraw from my case 3 days in before trial and i had to represent myself. CAN YOU BELIEVE i was denied a lawyer AND a jury ? I never knew they could do either in America :-[ Anyway i was convicted and now owe over 65% of my years social security , have 2 yrs 2 months on probation , and have 128 hrs of community service that I CANT GET TO TO DO . Well its not that bad now i can get there at least but to be honest before i met my new wife Kathleen it had been over 4 months since i got to go to the grocery store or see my therapist. BTW i do see an awesome therapistr at a wonnderful place called positive impact where they cater to nothing but those of us with this bug;) Anyway I still have 1 charge pending that is from OVER a year ago and if i cant walk away from that case clean I WILL go to jail because that redneck bastard thinks he has a faggot and wants to punish me. So far i have spent 50 days in freezing 2 meal a day hell and PRAY i dont go back but this SOB is dieiing to put me back in.

 BTW atlanta legal aid does not do criminal neither does aids legal project and sorry to say but as far as i am concerned Aid Atlanta is TOTALLY WORTHLESS they have done nothing but cost me money and have NEVER helped with anything yet :( AAnyway i appreciate all those who were concerned and just happy to say i made it through and am TRULY HAPPY for the firs time in the 18 yrs that i have had this bug. I only hope for more to find this happiness and peace in life that i now have ;)
