Now that my SSA is well under my control and I know I will never hurt myself again I am afraid my past will come back to haunt me. It did not last long but it only takes one infected partner...I just hope I am not HIV+ I feel like that would be him winning and laughing at me whilst doing it. I am feeling pretty low and scared this morning and could really use encouragement : /

Hang on Publius,
you were so brave, hopefully everything will be alright.
I'm so proud on you man, it takes a lot of courage to collide directly with own destructive past.You have my hat off because of that!
I'm praying for the best possible outcome!

The test came back negative thank God. I am happy they have public health facilities for things like this and it was a real pleasure to see the results of voting for such levies. Although no one from around here will read this THANK YOU to all my fellow citizens for voting in measures that make these facilities possible!

Wow man, that is so GREAT NEWS man smile
I'm near tears man, I know how difficult can be waiting alone and thinking on many different things about self from the past and not in the most positive way.
This is awesome victory ((((Publius)))), you are inspiration for all of us!

I heard a broadcast report which claims to document a great increase in HIV. The speaker was a scientist, representing a report in the prestigious journal, Science. He emphasized that the heaviest burden was among young black (afro-americans) in Mississippi in the age group of 15 - 23. He carefully avoided the word "abuse", but apparently young blacks are "recruited" in their socio-economic class by the older guys. He didn't really put this slant on it, saying that they were just all in there together and that the young ones just became mixed up in sex with the older guys.

He said that the difficult part was that they just didn't know what was happening and that they were ignorant about being tested for HIV. He claimed that they were too naive to go to the pharmacist to ask for condoms.

I think this is a reference in Science.

(sorry, I'm out of time and I'll have to do this later)

If you Google: PBS in HIV you'll get lots of hits.
