Under the Weather

Today is Tuesday and I hope your day has gone better than mine. I knew when I woke up this morning it was probably not going to be a good one for me.

See there are many downsides to being HIV positive for a long time. One of those is what the medications, especially the old ones in the old doses, can do long term to your body. One of the side effects I suffer from is neuropathy. It is chronic and now up to my calves and forearms. It feels like spikes going into the skin causing constant agonizing pain. Even with taking high doses of pain killers, it is only bearable.

So instead of going on about my problems since I know many are worse off than I, I would like to concentrate on the good. I took some time today and finished the photos from the last weekend at Birmingham's Pride. So please enjoy the pics with Dab the AIDS Bear and our sponsor, Butch McKay:

I hope you enjoyed those as much as I did and that you have a great rest of the week.

Wishing you health, hope and happiness.

big bear hug,

Daddy Dab
