Trying to Remember the Beginning of the AIDS Crisis, 30 Years Later | by Choire Sicha | Good

I remember discovering that someone I was dating was going  neurologically crazy, and him discovering that he was going  neurologically crazy, like his brain and his body were breaking up. I  remember casual relationships that ended with people going into the  hospital instead of with an awkward conversation. I remember people  changing the whole point of their lives. I remember people being too  afraid or guilty to have sex with me. I remember cleaning out someone’s  boxes from a garage, boxes that then had nowhere to go. Poor boxes. I  remember taking this kid get a spinal tap. I remember lovers parted. I  remember how angry Rob Lowe was. Not the famous Rob Lowe, but a really  pissed off guy with long hair who played Jesus in a street crucifixion  one Easter. Since his name was really Rob Lowe we only ever called him  Rob Lowe.
