Worried About Infecting Mom

Hi Pozzie, 

I'm worried that my mother might get HIV from touching my infected blood. Few months ago, I had a little wound on my left arm due to severe scratching. My mom saw my blood dripping, she intended to wipe it with her finger and I moved away but I knew she managed to touched my blood, she was so careless. I told her never to do that again coz it's very risky. She doesn't have cuts or open wounds on her finger but still it made me worry so much. Several months after that incident, I become very anxious and paranoid everytime my mom gets sick...Fever, muscle pains, headaches and had mouth sores once. I told her that I worry bout it though I knew that she really has weak immune system ever since and she said that she's always like that whenever she overworks and gets so much stress and over-fatigue. 

I even check her skin from time to time for rashes whenever I see her scratching.
Can she possibly gets HIV from touching my blood? Please help. Thanks.


Moving to the Philippines


I am from the UK and will go to live in Cagaya De Oro next year and would like to know if I can get the meds that I am currently on. I take Atripla which works well for me and I want to carry on with it so is it possible to buy it in the Philippines and if so where and at what cost please.

I hope you can help me with this.

Best regards

My PLHIV Story: "Huwag Matakot Harapin ang Problema"

Sana ang kwento ko na to ay maging daan para makapanghikayat na magpa-HIV test ung mga taong takot o nahihiyang harapin ang realidad ng buhay.

Dax ang pangalan ko, 24 years old na ako ngayon. Namuhay ako ng puno ng pagaalaga at pagmamahal sa aking pamilya. Mahirap man ang buhay pero masaya dahil kami ung klase ng pamilya na masasabi mong mahal namin ang isat isa. Bata palang ako may laya na akong gawin ang mga gusto ko, hinahayaan akong madapa at bumangon sa sarili kong mga paa. Tinuruan akong harapin ang aking pagkakamali, un na din siguro ang dahilan kung bakita wala akong bisyo ngayon (yosi, barkada, drugs, alak etc) at naging responsible akong anak.

Noon pa man attracted na ako sa kauri kong lalake pero patuloy ko paring ikinukubli ang aking tunay na pagkatao sa pagkakaroon ng mga girlfriend, oo..MGA talaga.. kasi madami sila, ehehe... Bagamat hindi iyon ang tunay na gusto ko, pero hindi kailanman naging dahilan iyon para pagsisihan ang mga pinasok kong relasyon, dahil masasabi kong naging masaya ako sa piling ng mga babaeng pumasok sa buhay ko. Sakanila ko natutunan magmakaawa, umiyak, masaktan at higit sa lahat ang magmahal ng lubusan. Marahil hindi maniniwala ang nakararami na imposibleng magmahal ng babae ang isang lalake na may pusong babae pero ng mga panahon na un pagmamahal ang nararamdaman ko sa mga babaeng dumaan sa buhay ko. Hanggang ngayon nga dumadating pa ung punto na hinahanap-hanap ko parin ang pagkakaroon ng babaeng minamahal.

TRR Foundation in Baguio City

The Project Red Ribbon Care Management Foundation Inc (TRR) has linked up with the Baguio Support Group to replicate all the programs of TRR in the City of Pines. With the partnership of TRR with the Metropolitan Christian Church (MCC) of Baguio, through the commitment of Tita Bootz and Pastor Myke, we will be able to strengthen the promotion of HIV awareness, do our Care Management programs for HIV facilities and HIV and AIDS Treatment Hubs and do all support and care programs. By doing this, with missions aligned, we will be able to improve the quality of lives of people living with HIV (PLHIV) through awareness, resources, care and support.

This partrnership will benefit the key population in and around Baguio City and will also help the PLHIV in the other provinces nearby for their continuance of treatment care and support.

If you are from Baguio or in nearby provinces, please call our TRR Hotline Numbers to know more about the activities of TRR in Baguio City. We will also be entertaining volunteers to help us out with all the TRR programs in the City.


Thank you very much.

Brother Needs Help!


My brother is suspected to have HIV he's in the ICU right now being treated for pneumonia. I have been suspecting it since late last year. He's always been very secretive with his life in fact we have no idea what kind of life he's really living although he told us that he was gay. He would always make stories that we would later find out to be lies even about his health. Anyways I started suspecting when he started to always refuse to be accompanied by my mom for check up when he's sick and lately he's always very sick.
