A place where we can share our experiences and effects of being a long term survivor.

only those that lived in those times Pre-HAART can understand what we have been through! We were the Guinea pigs for the medication that we have now. we come from an era where we had nothing but each other. Many of us are living in isolation, we have PTSD,Depression and Anxiety! WE ARE THE FORGOTTEN ONES! we are still here and alive. #Longtermsurvirosmatter

Many can learn from our experience ! we have a fountain of information.

 

love and light

Sean McKenna "Life with AIDS isn't so damn "Fabulous"

"I tend to present my life with joy and good humor (and let’s face it, I have never had a challenging emotion that wasn’t worth stuffing down as far as possible). Sean, on the other hand, wants us to face the harsh realities of today’s long-term survivors. He has sent me messages to chastise me for painting too rosy a picture. He puts me on the defense a lot.
