Help With AIDSmeds Report on HIV & Depression
« on: December 19, 2007, 03:36:13 PM »
Dear folks in the forum,

I'm in the midst of writing a special report for AIDSmeds on HIV & depression, w/a bit of a slant on what impact the post-holiday time and New Year's resolutions have on people who are suffering with seasonal or regular depression. We always do our best to weave in the voices of people with HIV who have experience with whatever topic we're writing about, and I think that's particularly important with this subject.

As part of my research for the report, I scanned through a lot of the postings in this forum and was struck by the eloquence and passion in a number of the postings. If you're willing to openly share your story, experience and truly beautiful voices with our wider AIDSmeds audience as part of the report, I think it would increase its value tremendously.

I know we're heading into a period where a lot of folks will be on the road or unavailable due to the holidays, but if any of you would have ten or fifteen minutes to spare for an interview between now and December 26th, it would be much appreciated.

The best way to reach me if you're interested and available is to email me at devans_aidsmeds@yahoo.com

Thanks again and I wish you all a safe and peaceful holiday time.

Hi David!

While I totally understand why you posted in the Mental Health forum, I've moved your thread because you will get more responses here in the Living With forum.

Happy holidays to you too!

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

Thanks so much to everyone who responded to my request for interviewees. I wasn't able to use all of your stories, but those who expressed an interest in sharing your experience in an AIDSmeds or POZ article are sincerely appreciated, and we're always looking. In fact, AIDSmeds is scheduled to post 26 such special reports in the coming year, so anyone who's ever thought they may want to share their experience and inspiration with other POZ folks should feel free to write to me at devans_aidsmeds@yahoo.com

The article is live now, and I hope it helps anyone feeling blue after the holidays.

Here's the link:
