Today we at the Spin Cycle lost one of our dearest friends. Christine, from the AIDSmeds Forums, lost the battle against AIDS at 2 PM on October 17th. The picture you see is of Christine enjoying her recent and last birthday.
HIV positive since 1993, it didn't seem to matter what treatment Christine tried. They all failed her dismally. To those who say HIV infection is a "manageable chronic illness" we say -- Feh! You wish!!
She was good and true and honourable, unlike the arseholes who read and write this blog.
I have disabled the comment facility for this article. Frankly a proportion of our readers are dead-set butt-munches and I won't have those sorts of people profaning Christine's memory.
There is a condolence thread for Christine in the AIDSmeds Forums.
All of us here at the Cycle send our condolences to Christine's loved ones.
For and on behalf of the Spin Cycle,
