Believe it or not, not only do many people successfully adjust to life with HIV, some come to feel pride in their courage to live successful lives.

Yes, HIV is challenging. Yes, HIV can be stressful. Yes, an HIV diagnosis can come with stigma and negative perceptions.

But, you don’t know how strong you are until you have to be. And the only thing that has the power to define you…is you.

Don’t view your differences as problems, but view them as an opportunity for you to be with someone who will bring you out of your comfort zone. Differences can bring about a good change in both people, and they don’t always have to be problems.

Lil Wayne’s Trial Could Be Delayed Due to Seizures

Lil Wayne‘s medical emergency Thursday could derail his trial … TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the case tell us, Wayne was scheduled to testify Friday but just before noon Thursday the judge was informed the rapper had a seizure out of state and was going to the hospital.  As a result, court was dark Friday.

Wayne is suing Quincy Jones III over a documentary QIII did on him, claiming it’s a “scandalous portrayal.”  Wayne also alleges producers didn’t have the right to use his music in the flick. (You’ll recall the hilarious deposition tapes we posted.)

Our sources say they’ve been told it is “unlikely” Wanye will be able to testify on Monday and there is a “real chance” Wayne will not be witness ready for a significant period of time.

Humor for the soul

TELL ME THIS WON’T HAPPEN TO US!!!

Three sisters, ages 92, 94 and 96, live in a house together. One night the 96-year-old draws a bath. She puts her foot in and pauses. She yells to the other sisters, ‘Was I getting in or out of the bath?’

The 94-year-old yells back, ‘I don’t know. I’ll come up and see.’ She starts up the stairs and pauses, ‘Was I going up the stairs or down?

The 92-year-old is sitting at the kitchen table having tea listening to her sisters, she shakes her head and says, ‘I sure hope I never get that forgetful, knock on wood.’ She then yells, ‘I’ll come up and help both of you as soon as I see who’s at the door’

TELL ME THIS WON’T HAPPEN TO US!!!

Three retirees, each with a hearing loss, were playing golf one fine March day. One remarked to the other, “Windy, isn’t it?”

“No,” the second man replied, “it’s Thursday.”

And the third man chimed in, “So am I. Let’s have a beer.”

TELL ME THIS WON’T HAPPEN TO US!!!

A little old lady was going up and down the halls in a nursing home. As she walked, she would flip up the hem of her nightgown and say “Supersex.”
She walked up to an elderly man in a wheelchair. Flipping her gown at him, she said, “Supersex.”

He sat silently for a moment or two and finally answered,“I’ll take the soup.”

TELL ME THIS WON’T HAPPEN TO US!!!

Now this one is just too Precious…LOL!

Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades. Over the years, they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures. Lately, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards.

One day, they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said, “Now don’t get mad at me. I know we’ve been friends for a long time, but I just can’t think of your name! I’ve thought and thought, but I can’t remember it. Please tell me what your name is..”

Her friend glared at her for at least three minutes; she just stared and glared at her. Finally she said, “How soon do you need to know?”

TELL ME THIS WON’T HAPPEN TO US!!!
As a senior citizen was driving down the freeway, his car phone rang.

Answering, he heard his wife’s voice urgently warning him, “Herman, I just heard on the news that there’s a car going the wrong way on Interstate 77.

Please be careful!”

“Heck,” said Herman, “It’s not just one car. It’s hundreds of them!”

TELL ME THIS WON’T HAPPEN TO US!!!

Two elderly women were out driving in a large car–both could barely see over the dashboard. As they were cruising along, they came to an intersection. The stoplight was red, but they just went on through.

The woman in the passenger seat thought to herself ‘I must be losing it. I could have sworn we just went through a red light.’ After a few more minutes, they came to another intersection and the light was red. Again, they went right through. The woman in the passenger seat was almost sure that the light had been red but was really concerned that she was losing it. She was getting nervous.
At the next intersection, sure enough, the light was red and they went on through. So, she turned to the other woman and said, “Mildred, did you know that we just ran through three red lights in a row? You could have killed us both!”
Mildred turned to her and said, “Oh, dear; am I driving?”

POLL: Were Lil Scrappy’s AIDS Comments Really That Bad?

Originally posted on 97.9 The Box:

lil scrappy love and hip hopSince Frank Ocean has come out and revealed that he is a bisexual man, celebs have shown their support by saying kind things and thanking him for being strong enough to admit such a secret.

MUST READ: Frank Ocean’s Tell-Tale Bisexual Tweets

On the flip side, “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” rap star Lil Scrappy, had this to say about the whole thing:

“I’m glad that he came out so all the real women that love to mess with real men, straight men, we can keep the AIDS situation down, you feel me?,” said Lil Scrappy. “[homosexuality] is a doorway to AIDS, scientifically.” -TMZ

It seems like Lil Scrappy is referring to the “down low” (the subculture of men who engage in sexual acts with other men but do not make it public knowledge, then sleep with women) and how some gay men carry the disease and spread…

You Thought Bath Salts Were Bad? Heard of The Devil’s Breath? [VIDEO]

Originally posted on Z 107.9:


The latest to follow in the footsteps of “bath salts” is a Colombian drug called “Scopolamine,” more commonly referred to as “the devil’s breath.”

The drug makes you incapable of making your own decisions, and makes you a slave to the person who has given it to you. It’s the modern day “ruffies,” but with a much deadlier effect.

VICE’s Ryan Duffy went to Colombia to check out the strange and powerful drug. The first few days in the country were a harrowing montage of freaked-out dealers and unimaginable horror stories about Scopolamine. After meeting only a few people with firsthand experience, the story took a far darker turn than we ever could have imagined. Check out the documentary below:
