Justin's HIV Journal: Justin's 10 Year Anniversary living with HIV

It has been 10 years since I’ve been diagnosed with HIV.  I’ve changed HIV medications twice and my body seems to like the latest one far better than the other two regimens I was on.  I seem to have been dealing with things that have come along with being infected with HIV rather well.  Physically I didn’t expect to get Rosacea but I’m keeping it under control by trying to avoiding things that I really like to eat and drink.  I did break out into hives on my arms one time and it was intolerable to the point where I was screaming in pain but that went away when I took an inflammatory.   

Since having HIV is have earned an Associate’s in Communications, a Bachelor’s in Political Science, a Master’s in Public Health and now I’m in school to get my Doctorate in Public Health.  During those 10 years I’ve gotten married and have two sons by adoption, Lundyn and Tavis.  All in all, I’m happy and I’m doing well.  10 years down and as many years as it takes to find a cure to go.

Texas Lt Gov Dan Patrick's Tweets & Pulse Night Club!

In Orlando Florida about 2am on 6/12/2016 a gunman entered the (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender) LGBT club called the Pulse and opened fire killing approximately 50 patrons.  Just hours after the mass shooting Texas Lt Gov. Dan Patrick an avid anti-LGBT campaigner sent out a tweet saying, "Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows." just hours after a mass shooting, which is from the Bible and found in Galatians 6:7.  Representatives for the lieutenant governor said the post were prescheduled and that Patrick and other statewide officials usually share Bible verses on social media on Sunday mornings. 

 The tweet was deleted around 11:00 a.m. Sunday.  The Texas' Democratic Party responded by calling on Patrick to apologize immediately.  Patrick campaign spokesman Allen Blakemore strongly denied the tweet was in any way related to the Orlando shooting and that Patrick was currently out of the country.

Whether accident or not, why has it taken this long to get an apology from him? What is the hold up?  You are a major _ _ _ hole, no doubt.
