House of AIDS: The destruction of an excellent service for Geraldo Alckmin

, SeropositivoOrgLast Friday I was at the AIDS House, where I've been for seventeen years, and since when House of AIDS was the project of excellence in the treatment of HIV patients and AIDS.

Initially, this creature, Governor-elect Geraldo Alckmin, seems to have been ruling our lives in the State of São Paulo since the passing of Mario Covas, a decent man, with whom I had the opportunity to stand for fifteen minutes. This one, who is elected in the first round in all disputes in an incomprehensible way, a kind of "Poltergeist Effect", closed the house of AIDS and banished us to Emilio Ribas. For me the feeling of orphaning.

I got to 4 hours in line to withdraw medicines and, pressed, the common Pastel of Chuchu found itself in need of reopening the house of AIDS (there is much more around that, and I know what it is but I do not betray the trust of people who clarify the unspeakable).

I want to make a comment here. I once went to one of the Charity clinics with a doctor with whom I consulted, and after I informed him about my serology, he asked me the basic cholesterol and CD4 and Viral Loading rates and he asked me where I was treated, and I said ... in the "House," and he made the following comment about AIDS House, not yet victimized by this metastatic cancer called Geraldo Alckmin:

It is the best center for treatment and care of people living with HIV, as well as an advanced research center in South America, and I still affirm that it may well be all of this throughout the Southern Hemisphere!

The Pastel de chuchu did the necessary, the possible, the impossible to perform the unnecessary. He did not renew the rent of a building belonging to a respectable company, which did what it could, because they knew what was happening there, that it was important and that it should have stayed there.

I do not know why Fernando Haddad got his name on the board of the completely defaced "Reinauguration of the House of AIDS," where many of the most important officials in dealing with patients simply did not go. I want to remember another circumstance.

Once I arrived at the door of the AIDS House completely exhausted, having difficulty climbing the stairs and was seen by the receptionist at least twenty meters from me, the receptionist recognized me, realized I was not well, called two nurses, who already came with the wheelchair. My blood pressure was in 19 * 22 (very high and convergent); I was on the verge of a cardiac arrest ... My physician in those days was Dr Sigrid, and very thoughtful prescribed me about 30 drops of novalgine and constant monitoring of my pressure .... This took about three hours and she explained to me that if I had given medication to lower the pressure, I would eventually lack blood in the brain and I would have a stroke.

There was the adhesion group, from whose actions I myself was benefited, when, after a disastrous emotional shock I simply abandoned the treatment and as soon as I was consulted and I did not go, they called me, affectionately, they talked and I reconnected , even if partially to reality. I came back to understand that letting me die is a passive form of suicide and ...

If that had happened last week my ashes would already be in the Republic Square, my home, "the home of those who lived walking" ... (...) ...

What I saw last Friday I'm going to try to sketch here with light paints and, frankly, my desire was to peel the batatinha and to go to the slang, because only there are the words that better and perfectly classify and qualify this Troll.

One was humble and unfortunately without intellectual resources.

Her doctor, a resident, scheduled her appointment for a certain date 180 days later. He himself knew that his residence was ending and did not warn.

And the poor girl was there trying to figure out what was going to happen, this last Friday, the seventeenth of February of 2017. She asked to speak to the social worker and she went to a meeting and would not go back ... ops ... Does the House of AIDS only have and only a social worker? Well, there are well over five thousand patients!

Well, the girl on the register proposed another date for her, in five or six months at a time when the patient needed to be at work, and if she did she would run the risk of running out of work ...

I did not see how that ended but it certainly did not end well.

I'm sure that the people who created the AIDS House (That homesick of the Zerbine Foundation) did not idealize and did not even imagine that such a thing could happen, as the document copied and pasted below in its entirety says.

I think he stays in power more or less like this.
