My Weekend

I went to a nude pool party Saturday afternoon with some friends. Made a few new ones and saw a few old ones too. Got a little too much sun on my shoulders but don't think it will peel. Went to the lake house for family time. Forgot the camera, but still had a good time and good food.
Also, a friend told me he was HIV positive. I had suspected it for a while. It is still shocking to hear none the less. He assures me he has comes to terms with it and is very healthy for now. That makes 5 I'm aware of that are positive. (Of the 14 friends I've lost, 12 were AIDS or AIDS related illnesses).
Overall, it has still been a good weekend with that one exception. One day at a time.

most people with HIV are long time such, nowadays it is hardly a big deal. For most . I hope it is so with you.

You have been through a lot, losing so many friends to AIDS. I wish the best of health to this friend who just told you about his positive status.

Glad to hear you had a good weekend.

Glad to hear you had a good weekend.

Sorry to hear another friend of you was infected with HIV. Luckily nowadays it can be, somewhat, treated. Didn't they listen when the message went out they could protect themselfs with a tube of latex or clean needles?!

May your friend focus on healthy living and healthy attitudes and have access to proper medications and treatments that he may live long and enjoy life.

My default assumption is that all middle-aged gay men are poz and have years of experience either living with HIV or loving someone who does. Is that bad of me?
If a friend tells me he is neg, I'm very happy for him, but it doesn't change anything. Our friendship's the same, poz or neg.
My hubby Greg tells me it is rude to ask someone about his status, so I'm left to make assumptions. Is Greg correct? Is it rude?
