HIV Drug Induces Blogging Hiatus
The recent new mix of drugs in my AIDS cocktail has produced some excellent lab results, but the serious side effects of one medicine have kicked my butt and head. My doctor and support network agree with me: time to stop Truvada. It's the likely culprit causing the problems, and so my cocktail evolves yet again.
Just a few reasons why my blogging has been so light for about ten days, and why I'll keep to an intermittent blogging routine. Emailing and commenting are enough, for me right now.
The new HIV stats for California, the White House making visitor logs even more confusing and user-un-friendly, pushing the FBI and NIH to release the files and contracts I've requested, can all wait.
But I do have time to say thanks to Rick Rosendall of Gay and Lesbian Activists Alliance in DC, for publicizing and endorsing my post calling for the White House to honor gay pioneer Frank Kameny with the Medal of Freedom.
And time to also share a comment from gay legal eagle Dale Carpenter, who is on this medal-for-Kameny bandwagon, and sums up so fabulously part of the importance of what this honor would mean: "It would be nice to have our government say that our only gay heroes aren't the dead ones."
Well, I've got a new three-speed bike to break in, the San Francisco weather is gorgeous and I'm not only on a mini-drug vacation, but also a hiatus from my blog. Catchya later, alligator.
