The RHATT Watch
Today is Tuesday, July 10th, Day 76 of the Rhatt Watch.
Everyone is talking about the Ratt hiding for long periods, slithering in and out of Town on occasion and his sickly looking appearance in recent months. It appears that information on the Ratt’s illness, if that is the reason for his appearance, is virtually not existent. However, there are rumors that the Ratt’s appearance is uncannily similar to someone experiencing HIV/AIDS. This is a serious life threatening disease that should not be ignored or taken lightly by anyone. Even the smallest exchange of bodily fluids, from a sneeze, from sweaty hands, or from sexual relations can and does cause the HIV virus to be transferred and results in HIV and possibly AIDS.
As a precaution, anyone who has had close relations with the Ratt is encouraged to see their personal physician as soon as possible and get screened for HIV. Also, anyone who is considering a future relationship or exchanging bodily fluids with the Ratt or any other high risk individual, there may be some protection that has become available for you.
Recently, the US department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have approved and are encouraging high risk individuals to consider taking Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) regularly. PrEP is a combination of two HIV medicines (tenofovir and emtrictabine) sold under the name Truvada (R) for daily use. When used properly, PrEP can help you and save your life. CDC and other studies show that PrEP is up to 99 percent ( 99%)effective in preventing HIV. In combination with other preventative measures, like condoms, effectiveness can be nearly 100 percent (100%). HIV / AIDS are not worth ignoring precautions and risking your life now that PrEP is available to everyone. And if you have already been exposed, there’s Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) available for you.
The CDC has a variety of programs to help you understand HIV/AIDS and the various options to prevent and/or treat these diseases. Reach the CDC at 1600 Clifton Road, Atlanta, GA 30329-4027; 800-CDC-INFO (800) 232-4636; https://www.cdc.gov/HIV/basics/whatishiv.html . If you need help paying for PrEP, CDC has helped arrange a medication assistance program. It can be accessed through Gilead, the producer of Truvada (R), at (855) 330-5479; http://www.gilead.com/responsibility/us-patient-access/truvada%20for%20prep%20medication%20assistance%20program. Also, the Florida HIV/AIDS hotline (800)352-2437 has additional resources to help. Don’t put your life or anyone else’s life in jeopardy with high risk sexual activities or sharing needles. Rat that goes for you also.
HIV / AIDS are spred when the Human Immunodeficiency Virus, contained in certain body fluids, is transferred from one person to another where it attacks and destroys the CD4, or % cells. While this involves every exchange of bodily fluids, including any sexual encounter, in particular, it places children who are the victims of pedophilia, nepiophilia, ephebophilia at extremely high risk.
Also intravenous drug use and shared needles increase the risk. White Springs children need to be protected from all predators. If you, or someone you know of, could potentially be exposed to HIV / AIDS take precautions and checkout PrEP.
