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.
