Each year, September 18th is honored as National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day, a time to recognize the struggles and triumphs of HIV-positive elders, and highlight the challenges they still face. The LGBT Health Resource Center has created a place for these individuals to share their stories and draw strength from each other with its new LGBTQ 50-plus HIV Group. We asked the group’s coordinator, Monte Ephraim, LCSW-C, to share more about this important day.

Promoting Compassion

Harvey, Irma, Jose... As we’ve watched with awe, what Mother Nature can do, it’s also brought us face-to-face with the best traits of human beings. Frankly, in the last several months, I had started to question my basic belief in the positive and good nature of people. The divisiveness, the nasty and cruel comments on social media and elsewhere, even with people face-to-face with others in stores, became a huge obstacle to having faith in the human race. Granted, there were many factors adding fuel to that fire, but I kept wondering how any person could become so twisted. This from someone who has been working with people for the last 35 years...

We’ve all heard the saying, “You can’t give from an empty cup.” And to be honest, it used to drive me crazy. I never understood the concept of taking care of yourself, so that you can give your best effort in everything you do. Unfortunately, for most of the population, this concept is non-existent. Most of us juggle many responsibilities and aren’t taking care of ourselves – physically, mentally, or emotionally. Having experienced total depletion on all three of these, I want to give you my top-five tips for making sure I’m taking care of my needs every day. I didn’t understand the importance of these until I could no longer be of service to my family, job, and especially to myself.

As a practicing urologist, as well as the author of The Ultimate Guide to Male Sexual Health: How to Stay Vital at Any Age (second edition), my professional activities have centered around the diagnosis and treatment of urologic cancers. I’ve been a longtime supporter of the LGBTQ community, and during my 30-year practice, it has been my clinical observation that the basic psychological, physiological, emotional, and physical aspects of sexuality are blind to gender identity and sexual orientation. Although my book mainly addresses male sexuality and the penis, my hope is that it will help all readers “with a penis in their lives.”

For the most part, I live a pretty healthy lifestyle. I exercise 30 minutes four to five days a week and I eat more vegetables at breakfast than most people do all day. I don’t mind eating the same things every day. My breakfasts and lunches are standard and I add some variety at dinner. While I try to limit my sweets I am not very successful. I can plow through a box of Oreos and Reese’s are my kryptonite.

Because of the warm weather and spending more time outside, people get more skin rashes in summer than any other time of year. Some rashes are easy to recognize; identifying others takes some detective work. Any skin infection that comes with a fever, headache, shortness of breath, or abdominal pain should be evaluated by a medical professional. This column – the second of two – covers scabies, Lyme disease rash, and impetigo.
