meech is right! Stick around the forums. Seriously, there is a wealth of valuable information here from people who have a lot of years fighting this bug. You can choose to accept or dismiss the opinions...you know what they say about opinions.

Navigating these shark infested waters can be daunting but these Queens really don't bite all that hard...thank goodness LOL!

You can say what you want about opinions. Say what you want about scientifically sound data. Data, by the way acquired past the period of time in which patient report was the only vector for transmission research.

I would never ask anyone to go by opinion. How condescending to place the long term survivors in that category.

Especially the ones currently giving advice in the AM I INFECTED threads.

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."

I used to keep a spreadsheet, too. Just for myself to keep track. I stopped after guy #100, though.
I wish I had kept logging.
