The Treatment forum is highly specialised and thus low traffic. It's not uncommon for threads to languish there for days or weeks before someone gets around to answering.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and presume that you're an HIV positive member like me. If that's the case you should try reposting in Living With or ask a friendly Moderator to move this thread there for you. It's high traffic and where most of the HIV positive members hang out. You don't have to slum it here in Am I Infected with the Worried Wells. ;)

If you're not HIV positive then there's probably not a lot we can do other than to ask why you're wondering about that particular combination of medications.

Hi matty,  yet, tested but  waiting for a conclussive result, but sympotamic (very.. candida.. oral leukoplakia,... swollen lymph nodes more than a year...sore throat... dry coughts.. .got some skin infection earlier this year...  ) and the most definitive ....  with a ex Girlfriend who tested positive....  so.. . i guess that will ..works  .. right ?

I did not post this in the living forum since I do respect this place and i know it is a sacred place for people who has only been handled the positive test result...officially...

so i am in the shadows right now... but i do feel the need to know more... i am trying to prepare...

so basically i am in that frame of mind, and can not get a sleep right now.. I hope the people dont find a problem to help me in this matters since i am very ignorant about this...

thanks for your kind and quick reply .. .

You're right not to post in Living With. You shouldn't post in Treatments or the other specialist forums either. I seem to remember your name from the old forums . . . .

Anyways, before you go freaking out about your HIV positive ex-girlfriend you should probably read our Welcome Thread. Similarly it would help if you posted some more details about any risk behaviours you've engaged in so we can address your specific questions.

Get some sleep. Take a sleep pill for a couple of days if you have to. And wait for your results. OK? I've responded to your question in the other forum, assuming you were positive. Jay
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.

--evil smile--

I certainly DO remember you now. Clearly you don't remember me. But I'm sure you remember:

Your original thread from the Old Forums in Febuary this year.

Your first apology thread.

Your second apology thread.

Ah search engines, where would we be without them, eh?

Have you bothered to get tested yet? All this hand-wringing isn't doing you any good. Go get tested and get it over with.

Chances are very good that you are hiv negative anyway. Hiv is a fragile, difficult to transmit virus and more so from a woman to a man.

Stop assuming you're positive, stop feeling sorry for yourself and go get tested.
