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
