  • Hey I am so thrilled I found your site, I really found you by error, while I was browsing on Yahoo for something else, Nonetheless I am here now and would just like to say thanks for a incredible post and a all round interesting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to go through it all at the minute but I have saved it and also added in your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read a great deal more, Please do keep up the great work.

  • The links in the WODs rarely work or go to the correct site for me. The Zone link (Know your Zone) displays a page not found error. The Spartan Exercise Database link goes to the same Double Butt Jump link above. Is this an issue with my browser or for everyone? This has been my experience with the last few WOD posts — link issues with each.

  • What’s next? That X-men have Filipino origins? Or Wonderwoman and Darna are cousins? Or perhaps Harry Potter was raised by a Filipino mangkukulam at some point.

  • The normal range for a CD4 result is different for different makes of test. In general the 400-1600 range is fairly standard. This is based on the range for 95% of people though. A few percent of people have normal levels that are either or lower than these limits, and it doesn’t appear to be related to any better or worse general health.

  • Best brownies I ever made. I was feared and revered the day I brought these in to the office. Not only is the caramel and peanut butter the best addition to a brownie you could ever imagine, but the brownie recipe all by itself is amazing!

  • Mark Foote, I can sit for an hr without any pain on my ankles or knees, but I just don’t find the value or point in practice anymore, especially in an organization.

  • My first day on Odimune and I am geting an allergic reaction. It is similar to that of a sulphur reaction, which I am allergic to. What should I do with the Odimune?

  • Love the fern pic. Makes me feel there. Funny how you escaped the fog and I keep on priayng for it here. I’m dying to take some misty pics. Welcome back JJ, good to have ya!

  • Hi I’m hiv+ and I’m using atrozia but the problem is a have noticed that my face is always itchy nd I have like a rash covering the my face. Please help because I have been to the doctors and nothing is helping.

  • Brad, don’t let this get you down. They give you flak because you’re honest and you tell it like it is. Everyone who ever does gets crap. Howard Stern and The Ramones, for examples, went through all kinds of mudslinging and hate campaigns against them because they dared to challenge bull$#!. You’ve helped me immensely and you’ll always have my support.

  • Hi Minki, it sounds like you are doing lots of good things to look after your health. It is important to talk to your doctor about the weight loss though as this may be caused by something else. Without knowing your usually weight and height it is difficult to know how significant the change is. However, 20 kg sounds like a lot, especially as most people tend to put on a little weight during the first six months on treatment.

  • I had a dream of where I was racing on a beautiful brown horse. At first I had to catch up to it but once I did, I easily jumped on it’s back and we rode together. It was a smooth ride and quick. Although I didn’t win the race, I wasn’t upset. I was in awe at the experience I had. Is this a positive dream?

  • It sounds like both you and your girlfriend need to talk to the doctor at the testing centre. It is very difficult to try and find out when someone became positive, but this might involve you both having your tests confirmed. You can not infect someone if you are HIV negative. I think the term that may have been used is DISCORDANT couple. This is used when one person is positive and the other is negative. Lots of positive people have relationships with negative people and this can include having children. Treatment for your girlfriend can reduce the chance of the baby having HIV.

  • I don’t know if was dreaming it didn’t feel like a dream. I remember going to bed and waking up in cave. I slowly opened my eyes laying next a fire lighting the cave just a little light. Enough to I was in a cave I jump to my feet looking around for something I thought was lost or might of died. It was a weird wanton feeling. But there she was not dead not lost my wolf I hug her stroke her dead told her I missed. I stand up look out the cave opening into a dark forest I feel the night breeze on my face; and asked she if she if was ready (She was her name). she walks to my side and rubbed me I told her ” remember stay by side run with me.we begin to run I feel the forest a euphoric feeling fills my body. And sitting up in my bed eyes wide open……. SAYING TO MYSELF MY WOLF SHE IS ALONE.

  • Hi Amadeu, I don’t know that my French skills are very good but I try. I have over the last few years traveled a lot to Brussels to perform; if I a going back I shall let you know. I will be performing in Spain this year too but not beautiful Catalonia. Wishing you well. Alyth

  • hello! I have a few questions, can I use a salted caramel recipe in place of the Kraft caramels? also I’d worry the caramel would maybe burn, would it be such a bad idea to bake the top layer of brownie on it’s own and just stick on top of the peanut butter and caramel while it’s still warm and just let it cool like that? just a thought, I’m new to the homemade caramel thing so I need as much tips as I can get lol, thanks for your time!

  • I am positive but my partner is not,I am planning to have a baby but I am afraid to take ARVs for the rest of my life. My viral load is undetactable and CD4 count is 600. Does this mean I will take the ARVs for the rest of my life if I plan to have a baby?

  • I am Zee I have been on Tribuss since February last year and I was never made aware that I need to take a pill on an empty stomach until I read on these blogs.I normally take my medication at 20h30 just after my meals.

  • Now that I have read about the coyotes I wonder if I can have 2 spirt animals cause I relate to this one and the wolf and now that I think about my faithful night back in the hotel it may have been a coyote that ran into the woods

  • This Dingdong Dantes is not an ordinary private individual. Dingdong is an appointed public official in the Philippines and he should act accordingly based on what he promised and sworn during his oath taking when he accepted his role for National Youth Commission therefore any lavish or extravagant parties or ceremonies are not permitted as public officials must take into consideration the current situation of public masses. I guess this is one of the legalities he forgot. Keep in mind that when someone becomes public official their priority is their constituents more than anybody else. Any person is allowed to file a legal case against him so to speak.

  • My friend tested positive while she was pregnant n his bf tested negative,my freind says they did sex even if she was on her period,she doesn’t how she get infected and how his bf is negative while they do unprotected sex. please clarify

  • I’ve jst started using Atroiza, no side effects yet but my abdomen is painful and kidneys sometimes! What time can I take it at night because sometimes I work until late but they said to take it at bed time.

  • Sticking with my theory that the brutal winter left the female unable to produce a viable egg. The adults would be adoring and doting over a fledged juvenile and the last several months have shown no evidence of it. Basing this on my own observances, which spans 4 years now. This time of year the adult vulture will still regurgitate food and care for its fledgling, well into December.

  • I have been going through some challenging times lately. I have an attraction towards long legs. Do not ask me why. Yesterday I went to see Sumatra Tigers at a Park and today walking in a populated area near a lagoon after seeing a bunch of white birds at a distance fly back and forth I saw a coyote run in front of me from a golf area across a street to another bushed area before the next golf area. Yes it did look at me. I feel guilty as I told the people at the resort about it and hope it’s smart enough not to get caught. Then I looked this up. Amazing to think of an animal being a spirit that is watching over me and yes I could do with some nice surprises soon.

  • How long it takes to get used to Odimune? I have been in Odimune for a year but still feel dizzy all the time and i am a shift worker. It worries me at times.

  • Hello, i study your website every now and then and i own a identical one and i was just thinking if you get a lot of junk comments? If so how do you quit it, any plug-in or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s generating me insane so any assistance is very much valued.

  • In my dreams, my lion is white or invisible, and I call him The Professor as he sometimes shape-shifts. He is never scary or threatening, instead, he is my protector and teacher. He often asks me questions, sphinx-like, to guide me in the direction I should go or help me find the answers I’m seeking.

  • Very fine, Kong. I got a tape of Joy Division from Danny, the drummer of the Avengers, and they were the finest thing (even if it was a crummy tape).

  • I have been diagonised HIV positive in 2008 and have been sleeping with my husband everyday of my life without using any protection. Today my husband has tested negative. Where could I possibly have gotten the virus because I never slept with anyone else and was never imposed to HIV situation.

  • When my mother was in labor for 36 hours she and my grandmother looked out the window at the same time and watched a coyote come out of a bush look at the pair of them then transformed into a bald eagle and flew away. Since then I have spoken to a shaman and he said they witnessed the trickster watching over my birth.

  • Boy, the Zen gang has so much more fun than us banal Shambhala people. We started out with a wildly flamboyant teacher and it seems like everything since has been about homogenizing and smiling sweetly and creating McDharma centers. I just might have to find myself some black cushions and decamp to the local Zen center where I can stir up trouble by declaring my loyalty to Brad. (I do that a lot at Shambhala gatherings but they all just stare at me blankly, they are really not a bunch that likes to go off the reservation.)

  • Also, I fully admit that the “psychological benefit of the doubt” can be a very self-righteous and condescending response to another person, but I don’t know of anything better yet. I suppose it’s less condescending if one remains open about ones own temporality of self-control. Emotions are just like that. Or so my experience has been thus far.

  • As with any symptoms, this is something to discuss with your doctor. Some people who are diagnosed HIV positive when their CD4 count is already very low, have nerve damage caused by HIV. This is called neuropathy. Another cause is the HIV drug stavudine (d4T).

  • The only thing that will keep you healthy and your HIV under control are HIV meds. If you are having trouble with Atroiza you can ask at your clinic or doctor if there are other meds available.

  • it is so hard to find that you are hiv positive and sometimes it feels like the end of the world but we just have to hang in day and live our life carefully because simelwe wukufa.

  • I had a dream that i transformed into a (werewolf sized) green lion, all of a sudden it was like the end of the world, nd i was this lion fighting nd killing zombies or zombie like people. All of a sudden i was joined by 2 other spirit animals(blue goat,& purple bear) i start we start running up a glass like tower and jumped into another part of the world. Were we had to fight some mysterious dark hooded figure. The goat was killed first, than.later the bear died. But i survived and deafeated the dark figure.

  • This is not a good idea, unless you normally sleep during the day and are awake at night. The recommendation is so that you are asleep when the drug levels are highest a few hours after taking Tribuss. If you take it during the day, you are likely to feel drowsy, dizzy and disorientated.

  • I started using Tribuss for a month, now i am using Odimune. I have problem with acid before I started the medication, I just find out that I have ulcers. I want to know if this is side effect and i have been using ulcer treatment for 3wks but I still experience the samething every morning. Please help!

  • Hi there… I am 35 weeks pregnant & have been taking Tribuss since I was 12 weeks. The problem is I dont take my meds at the same time everynight. I take them at 9, sometimes 9.30 or even 10 pm. Will this affect my baby? I am really worried.

  • I dreamed that I was walking next to a beautiful, huge chestnut horse. As we were getting closer to the stables I saw a man hitting a horse, also a chestnut, the horse was on it’s hind legs trying to pull free. Then suddenly the horse lay down on it’s side. Blood was flowing from it’s side. I was shocked at what I saw and started running towards the stables, shouting at the man to stop and saw that there were 3 horse’s lying on their sides with blood streaming out the wounds. When I reached the horses I was relieved to see that they were stil alive and that I could still help them. Then I woke up.

  • “I” have practiced Soto Zen, Zazen, etc. for the past 2-3 years, and I have come to see that Buddhism is not tenable in American organizations. This is a “Dhamma ending age” and pratyekabuddhas tend to emerge in this period. Buddhism has been distilled into simple phrases such as “live in the moment” when it dealt with much more “painful” topics in the past. Zen also began with much promise but eventually became too laid back in its illogical riddles, fetish over non-dualistic “formless practices”, and etc.

  • Since I have a thing for blue and white, I love, love, love that shirt. And now I want it to be summer, so I can wear my own denim baseball cap. Oh well.

  • Hi i started treatment at 32 weeks of my pregnancy and have delivered an HIV negative baby, so now my baby has been coughing for four days, i took him to the Dr and he said he is having pneumonia, what is the possible cause of these and is it possible for an HIV negative baby to have such disease? Is there a cure for these disease?

  • Spot on with this write-up, I actually suppose this website wants rather more consideration. I’ll most likely be once more to read much more, thanks for that info.
