A Day in the Life Video Series: Robert Breining on Getting Support Online and Off

December 13, 2012

Keeping up with HIV meds often means having to weave daily doses into a busy life. How do other HIVers do it? In each episode of this video series, we'll take a peek into the day-to-day routine of a person who's living with HIV, taking HIV meds and dealing with situations that get in the way of adherence. Watch other videos in the series.

Episode 10: Robert Breining

Age: 33

Home: Philadelphia, Pa.

Diagnosed: 2001

Summary: Cyber-activist Robert is used to connecting with community online. After having a rare allergic reaction to his first regimen, Robert was hesitant to start HIV meds again -- so he took to TheBody.com and POZ I AM, the social network he created, for information and support. Robert speaks on life, love, disclosure and finding a regimen that's nearly side effect-free.

You are brave & dealing hands on with the HIV issue! Many people like me have already accepted the magic work of the pills but are still struggling with different side effects! The doctors here in Malaysia are reluctant to advise on switch of combinations & that also made us lose confidence. Would appreciate your advice, thanks!

thank u for the video and the idea of helping people with hiv.
The video here has not a good audio quality,
the person speaks very fast and the
words sometime are not fully understandable
and the volume level is rather low.

Great story but the video quality is terrible, the audio is very poorly recorded.
