I need help
      #97345 - 05/03/04 08:12 PM

Hello. My name is Junior Montero. I'm a Cuban specialist in health promotion. I work with teenagers and young people on a variety of AIDS prevention programs. No matter how hard I try, my work would be incredibly enriched by the experiences of many of those who read this message. I would really appreciate if you tell my students how you advice to prevent AIDS, what living with AIDS is like, the risks of unprotected sex, or any other message of advice, love or the like.

The first thing you need to do is get your facts straight. So called HIV or AIDS is not a seperate distinct illness. Get the facts at

Hello Junior,
Advice to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS: abstain as long as possible. But with teenagers that is almost impossible. Tell them if they choose to have sex..use a night of pleasure is not worth a lifetime of uncertainity and possible pain.

Living with Aids is tough. Every day it seems like there is something new or unusual going on with your body. And every day you fight it with everthing that you are so that you can continue to live a fulfilling life. Having a normal body feeling becomes few and far between. So you learn to adjust..every day.

When I was first diagnosed, I remembered feeling like my life's dreams blackboard was erased and that I would have to rewrite my future to accomodate my illness. THAT was really hard.

People in general can be very cruel regardless of their true convictions about HIV/AIDS. (see denialist comments on Body Bulletin Boards). People tend not to want to get involved with someone who is positive. They are either terrified of getting the illness themselves or they see only the bad or they don't want to love someone they will someday have to let go of.

And lets not forget the lovely side effects of the medications that can include rash, fever, nausea, vomiting, hives, liver fibrosis, etc...just to stay alive and healthy.

Please do pass this on to the children. They do not want this illness and it is so very simple to avoid. All it takes is one small dumb mistake and you live with the consequenses THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.

"No act of kindness,
no matter how small,
is ever wasted." AESOP

ok - a lot of people won't like this.

i've been hiv+ for some 15 years now. this is what happend to me just 4 weeks ago:

got bitten by an insect. after 4 days it was a huge infection. as it was late, went to the kensington and chelsea and westminster emergency room in london, right next to the kobler centre, where i have been a patient for more than 10 years as they are supposed to be hiv specialists. before i revealed my hiv status to the night shift doctor on duty, i was told that bite would need an incision, i'd get some antibiotics and thats that. then i told them about my status.

three hours later the hiv doctor on duty showed up. the infection was quite bad. dead tissue. clearly needed an incision, if not more. the hiv doctor looked at it, and pumped me full of antibiotics. she was convinced that an incision was no longer needed.

the next day i flew out to berlin. had to. work. went straight to the hospital. told them nothing about my status. within 3 hours i was on the operating table, full aneasthetic, big abscess, local aneasthitic useless, antibiotics too can not penetrate dead tissue.

during all this time as a patient at the kobler centre in london i always questioned my treatment options. in the early 90-ties i noticed that most people i knew who participated in trials or adhered to the treatment given, well, they died.

so i did not take azt, nevirapine, ddc, ddc, and what else these things are called.

and i am healthy to date. my ex-wife gets the flu more often than i do. i get it about once a year. and when that happens everyone thinks i am about to snuff it. when my ex-wife gets the flu - weel, who cares!

my advice: make up your own mind. do not believe anything simply because mainstream medicine is telling you so. look around you. read statistics with care. questions science and the people that tell you to take medicine as to what it is exactly they want you to do and why.

and be careful revealing your status. beware of the hiv-aids cult out there. a multi billion dollar industry now exists, thousands of ngo's depend on the existence of hiv and aids.

all of these organisations and people have their own interests in prescribing you substances that are not necessarily good for you - apart from the psycho terror you will go through if you reveal your status and you do not happen to be gay!

thats all i can tell you. good luck!
