By Antron Reshaud Olukayode
October 15, 2014

So, for a few weeks I've been enjoying the company of a wonderful soul who in such a short time has changed my life in more ways than one. His name is Corey. I met him at a random trip to Starbucks on 7th and Peachtree Midtown.

The Human Pillbox
By Matt Ebert
October 14, 2014

What's in a name? They asked me to come up with a concept and the only thing I came up with is KIM KARDASHIAN HAS AIDS. I stopped there. Even though I know there is more to it, I'll just stop there. 'AIDS.' That's my blog name, keep it simple, stupid--AIDS. I like four letter words like FUCK, COCK, ARSE and AIDS over three letter words like AZT, HIV, ASS and RIP.

Kick Rocks
By Matt Ebert
October 14, 2014

KICK ROCKS is a blog about bracing yourself, skipping down life's pathway with AIDS. I first heard the phrase KICK ROCKS in deep rehab, when I was getting over a three year bender. The merry-go-round was grinding to a halt, and my body was putrefying before my very droopy eye balls. It was good times in gory places. It was somewhere around 2000 something, and someone said if I didn't like how I felt about something (at the time, heroin withdrawal) I could go ‘Kick Rocks!' Meaning there was nothing I could do about it but hurt my foot.

Checking Back in After My Long Hospitalizations
By Lynda Arnold
September 30, 2014

Wow, I've lost count of the days. Somewhere around 45-50 I realized that, gee, I had been hospitalized for a long time. I didn't even know hospitals kept you that long anymore; then just about that time that my reality became clear, I got transferred to another hospital which focused on rehab and short-term IV care. Then finally -- and I mean finally -- I went home. October is about to begin. When I entered the hospitals we were in August.

The Condom Conundrum: What Good Are They Anyway?
By Dave R.
September 26, 2014

Before you get the wrong idea, this is not a call for the abandonment of rubbers in favour of uninhibited sex. It's an attempt to place condoms in the context of a world where sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are out to get us at every turn.

Undetectable: A Drama in Three Parts
By Bob Leahy
September 25, 2014

The plot has never been quite this complicated. At one time, prevention messaging was simpler and, short of abstinence, centered on using condoms. It was that simple. But things became more complicated when the ability of antiretroviral therapy to substantially reduce the risk of transmission became evident. Not only did people have more choices, but these choices became more -- well, complicated. Frequently they involved knowing more about risk than ever before, more about the science of transmission and more about the comparative effectiveness of various prevention alternatives. Throw in controversy, mixed messages, a little bit of moralizing and proselytizing and HIV prevention choices became a bit of a minefield to navigate for the average Joe or Jill.
