By Tim Hinkhouse
September 22, 2016

I've been thinking about the upcoming election and the future impact it will have on the treatment and funding for people with HIV. Will federal funding be taken away and diverted into the pockets of big pharma if Trump gets elected? Would the economy collapse leaving people with HIV to die in phenomenal numbers like in the '80s? Making executive decisions to divide America and segregate the poor from the rich will only hurt America. In my opinion, if Donald Trump wants to "Make America Great Again," he should drop out of the race.

Seeking Clemency From an HIV Criminalization Sentence: When Has Time Been Served?
By Tim Hinkhouse
September 15, 2016

How many of you know about a site called change.org? I recently received an email from a doctor suggesting I start a campaign on this site. Has there been anyone who has made an issue about the HIV criminalization on this site? Who would be willing to do so for me?

By Tim Hinkhouse
September 13, 2016

I know that it has been a while since you have heard from me. There have been things inside of prison that I have had to deal with, as well as health issues. In the last month, I have had infections in both my ears, but they have now cleared up. I have had blinding headaches and was given a muscle relaxer, which helps. There has been nausea, but I think that it had something to do with my inner ear? I have had practically no energy, which made me spend a lot of time lying down.
