Mychael Knight

Designer Mychael Knight passed away in Atlanta last week at age 39. His family asks for privacy as they bury their loved one today.

Knight’s cause of death has not been released to the public. As a result the public continues to speculate about how he died.

Before Knight passed away, he wrote a now-deleted Facebook post detailing his long battle with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

IBS is also called spastic colon or irritable colon. Unlike Crohn’s disease, IBS is a non-inflammatory condition.

IBS is a collection of intestinal symptoms, such as diarrhea, bloating, excessive gas, constipation, abdominal pain and cramping.

IBS is not a terminal illness. People with IBS are more likely to die from other conditions, such as AIDS, intestinal infections, or other intestinal disorders, such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, or colon cancer.

Cause

The cause of IBS is unknown. Theories include a side effect of certain medications (such as AIDS drugs), infections, food allergies, young age, prolonged fever, and mental disorders such as anxiety or depression.

Women are more likely to be diagnosed with IBS. The disorder usually affects people younger than 45 years old.

Signs and Symptoms of IBS:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Weakness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Change in bowel habits
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Inability to empty bowels
  • Indigestion
  • Nausea
  • Passing excessive gas
  • Urgent need to defecate
  • Bloating
  • Cramping
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  •  

    Diagnosis

    There is no specific lab test to diagnose IBS. Doctors usually diagnose IBS by ruling out or excluding other intestinal disorders that have specific signs and symptoms.

    Treatment

    There is no cure for IBS. Patients can usually manage their symptoms through diet, exercise, medications and stress management.

    Medications for IBS are symptom-specific, such as meds for diarrhea, constipation, bloating, pain, laxatives, antibiotics and antidepressants or antianxiety meds.

    If you think you may have IBS, contact your personal care physician or health care provider.

    • klwbaby

      Unfortunately, its real.

    • Desiree Edwards

      People need to stop speculating. Let him rest in peace. It’s none of anyone’s business why or how he passed away. Let’s remember him for his creativity.

    • MS.BEE

      IT LOOK LIKE HE HAD AIDS BC I KNOW A LADY WHO DIED FROM AIDS &&& IN THE END SHE COULDN’T CONTROL HER BOWELS….THATS PROBABLY WHY THE FAMILY WANTS PRIVACY. ANYWHO R.I.P.

    • Ni Ni

      Me either

    • klwbaby

      Its weird how the the links included in this post did not mention AIDS…??

    • hottlanta

      I don’t care what he died from no more than Whitney Houston had dentures. The dead used to be sacred.

    • MsVAllDay

      This post is shady than a muggg!!!

    • Oh Tommie

      Lawd I can’t believe you posted that picture on the right. Have you no compassion? ?

    • Ms.Vanilla

      Damn.

    • Nophace

      This dude did not pass away from IBS! I repeat, this dude DID NOT pass away due to IBS….I’m willing to put my house and cars on it!!! On a side note, his family should find you and stomp mud holes in you for posting this BS

    • 2telldatruth

      That was a tuuurrrrrible thing to post!!!!

    • stevetheque

      WTF have you no shame? The dude is dead now and it doesn’t make sense dragging dude! If that is what he said he died from so be it!!

    • bemetoo

      when you have AIDS you shit alot you have uncontrollable amounts of shit…you lose weight and become immobile

    • JV

      Lol, right. A quick Google search will tell you that there’s no way to die from this unless there’s severe complications from something else — which means something else killed you.

    • klwbaby

      Nothing is sacred anymore.

    • IAmLegend

      No shade but I was so disappointed when I realized Whitney had lost her teeth around 2007. She had the most beautiful smile and those dentures never did do her justice. I miss Nippy.

    • Ms.Vanilla

      In Sandras defense, this is not the first time I’ve seen this photo of him on the right. It’s all over the internet.

    • stevetheque

      It doesn’t mean she had to stoop to that level and post it. That is no defense. The dude has already been dragged enough. What is the purpose of pilling on? For hits!!!

    • JV

      I don’t doubt that, but his death still has nothing to do with irritable bowel syndrome.

    • Ms.Vanilla

      Yes Steve. That’s exactly why she does it.

    • hottlanta

      A lot of people need dentures and don’t have the money to get them. I see no problem with that. If she had rotten teeth folks would complain she has the money/time to get some new ones.

    • freelancepimp .

      Most people who die from AIDS don’t usually die from AIDS. They die from medical complications and opportunistic infections associated with AIDS.

    • MoniquetheGeek

      How is she dragging him if this is a medical minute related to something he said he battled…something that was posted on HIS Facebook page? She didn’t say that was the cause of death nor did she say anything bad about him.

    • Letbyegones

      There’s a cure for everything. Don’t believe that lie

    • TheOwley

      I’ve never known the condition to do this to a person. Typically, it’s not a deadly ailment nor would it result in emaciation like this. The cause of death is family business so I’m not speculating here. However, to say it was IBS?? Just leave it at private. I saw a video of him at an event, he was wearing the shirt shown. It looked very sad. RIP to the young man.

    • xenaD

      Who is he? What is he being dragged for? And from the write up (AIDS references along with pic) I’m assuming, word on the curb, is that he died from an aids complication ??

    • IAmLegend

      I do NOT believe that in 2017, this 39 year old man with so much to live for died of AIDS. I know a few people with HIV who are healthier than some without it. I also know some who were walking around with it for years before they started treatment and still do not have AIDS. Of course its possible but I don’t believe it.

      I DO believe that IBS wreaked havoc on his body. In his case as he explained earlier this year, his body was not absorbing nutrients from any of the food he ate. Meaning his body was dying like that of a malnourished person. He had leaky gut which means toxins from his intestines leaked into his bloodstream which for most people is a pretty quick death.

      My heart goes out to this young man’s family and I pray that they find solace in the fact that he no longer has to suffer.

    • JV

      The only thing I take issue with: IBS is not fatal, period. Its inclusion was just a segue to the AIDS suggestion.

    • Coy little wink

      Wow

    • Ni Ni

      I meant to reply to you ?.
      Ikr, whenever i lose mine, I’m going to go get some of those dental implants, if I’m able. I’m not about to be walking around bare mouth if i can help it ?.

    • Coy little wink

      I know someone with IBS…he looks like the picture of health so…I always thought it was manageable

    • Ni Ni

      It is chile.

    • Dollface

      a co-worker just died last Thursday and he had Chron’s disease. It’s SHOCKING and I only just found out today. They said he was supposed to go in for a simple operation, but apparently there was some type of complication and he died. I just can’t believe. I just seen him last week. Geesh! Life is so short. 🙁

      Hello, Steve, you must be new here? That photo of Mychael was taken at New York Fashion Week last month. If Mychael thought his appearance was so unsightly, he would not have taken any photos at all. The fact that he took the photo at NY Fashion Week — surrounded by his models — means he intended for the photo to be seen.

      Thx for visiting.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      That photo was taken at NY Fashion Week last month. He happily posed for the picture at his fashion show. Why shouldn’t I post it? He clearly intended for the photo to be seen.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      I take offense to that. This is an informational post about irritable bowel syndrome. I had no hidden agenda for posting it.

    • Enoughsaid2020

      I know someone, who has this. Everything she ate, would run through her, and she was losing weight everyday.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Why should the links mention AIDS? This post is about irritable bowel syndrome, NOT AIDS.

      May he RIP.

      U mention AIDS as allegedly having something to with IBS. Don’t play this game Sandy. Just say he died of AIDS like u want to.

      Oh sandra rose you despicable ugly woman. Do you have a heart or compassion?? I think this is a new low. Just remember karma will catch up.

      These comments! ??

    • Oya Shango

      lol. Sandra you might as well say that you know that he died of AIDs. You are a nurse and anyone who has been around AIDs patients know the classic signs. This is in no way IBS. This is “wasting syndrome,” a direct manifestation of full-blown terminal AIDS. You know it and so do I and others.

    • http://suzar.com/BOTW/BOTW-ch1d-pages7-8.html Staci Elle

      My mom has had Crohs since the 70s it’s a hard condition RIP to your friend.

      I see your point Sandra, but we all know it wasn’t IBS. That picture was just sad.

    • stevetheque

      If you don’t get where I’m coming from off the rip, no sense in me explaining!

      I will be back shortly, I’m over on TMZ arguing with the DOTARDS!

      I don’t get where you’re coming from so I guess you won’t be explaining

    • thrift.store.jungle

      auntie, you are great at what you do. thank u for this medical minute.

      i’m all for privacy and whatnot. however, transparency by public figures suffering from certain illnesses could potentially provide preventative successes in those influenced by them. everybody wanna be in the spotlight until things get too real. i respect magic johnson and even charlie sheen for sharing their truth (even if it may have been the result of a blackmail attempt).

      peace to this man and his family.

    • lovelygamour

      The hiv advocates are saying distigmatize it so people get tested. What theyare doing is making new cases more likely. Tons of new people are getting hiv/aids. We are a first world country and things like hiv, polio, and mumps shouldve died out decades ago.

    • Louisville Is4TheBirds

      So basically he had AIDS

    • Gamer?? Chick

      Is that him in the right pic or is that an illustrated purpose pic?

      The cure apprently only cured some people so they didnt release it. Said it was a public health risk.

      Well they say slow guys be Packing so…..

      as medicine advance the longer these people live and can spread it purposely to more people

    • Sandyb1117

      It’s sad, that’s how Eddie Long looked before he passed. It happened so fast. ?

    • lovelygamour

      You seem misinformed. Hiv can turn into aids. Whatever stage the person that infected the other was at thats what the other picks up. So if someone with late stage aids infects someone on monday that person now has late stage aids. Hiv/aids morphs. The meds do not work for everyone. You have to be in insanely good health to stay healthly. Also just because hiv levels undectable doesnt mean its gone.

    • Toody Young

      Both of the pictures is him.

    • Nina Ross

      Charlie Murphy too

    • Taylor Shirene

      wayment Eddie Long died?

    • Nophace

      While u may be right, you also could have done an IBS write up without using his pic.

    • Sandyb1117

      Yes he did, it’s crazy. They said it was an aggressive form of cancer

    • Gamer?? Chick

      Wow,thanks.

    • lovelygamour

      Thats what everyone is tiptoe around. Their meds take a long time to produce-more costly, the public is a danger to them so everything has to be special, they have to watch how much sun they get. They are out living their resources. Its too many with too many new cases. Sadly. The new cases have to stop.

    • IAmLegend

      LMAOOO! Not only do you not know what you’re talking about, but you completely missed the point. Go talk to somebody else who is just as “misinformed” as you are.

    • Chocolate

      RIP.
      He was a public figure and died young- not releasing his cause of death is just exacerbating speculation and shunning the opportunity for awareness.
      The unavoidable rumors due to lack of a factual cause of death is more shameful to his memory than just being upfront.
      Peace and comfort to his fam- no matter the circumstances it is hard to see a loved one suffer and waste away before they die.

    • IAmLegend
    • shun king

      that why the lady in the health dept was talking about quarantine which is what’s need because the infection is getting greater as time goes..and once these people get it they are not telling anybody and want others to feel their pain

    • PussyGal0re

      Quarantine? AIDS and HIV are not airborne. You choose who you sleep with.

    • Quitedeliteful

      So true… I know several people with IBS and they are not sick nor did they lose a ton of weight. In fact, they are all overweight…

    • Coy little wink

      But he had leukemia

    • Quitedeliteful

      Yuup .. He had that monster. There is a certain aggressive form of cancer that only folks with the monster get.

    • PussyGal0re

      What do you propose? To continue to stigmatize? Ignorance and ambivalence are the cause. Free will is what makes the cases more likely. People are going to have sex. Awareness, information and openness can save lives.

    • Oya Shango

      Sorry, but I just buried a friend younger than Micheal who died of AIDS. In spite of all of the great meds out today, many of these guys are NOT taking them and are not seeking treatment. Many are also in denial and won’t get tested. In fact, their sexual behavior is worst than before. It is almost a death wish. There is a young black male on YT who is HIV pos and is advocating to leave the drugs and go holistic. That is where things are today.

    • Quitedeliteful

      I didn’t know Sandy-Mae was a nurse!!!

    • Quitedeliteful

      LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!!

    • Passion

      Wow, I’m just speechless, I had no idea that he….Wow, I would have never thought that this was him. I’ve had IBS for 40 years and a bowel resection but only had problems once in a while, nothing to this extreme! Wow! 🙁

    • Renee26

      It was probably sepsis because his bowels lwaked into his body

    • Renee26

      And Charlie Murphy too

    • Coy little wink

      All the medical minutes didn’t tip u off…plus she mentions it here and there ?

    • dontgetblocked

      Clearly, the man had AIDS. IBS was a result of the disease or the medications. What I don’t understand is why the HIV wasn’t managed before it became AIDS. He’s high risk and should have been tested frequently. RIP.

    • Renee26

      Exactly… sepsis was my first thought when intestinal leaks were mentioned

    • dontgetblocked

      Way minute. I don’t think Charlie had AIDS. Wasn’t it just cancer?

    • dontgetblocked

      Or you’re raped like the young boys who are targeted by older infected men.

    • Wreckognize Game

      I have IBS. Had colon cancer and had a colon resection also. I was on high alert when they said he had IBS. Just thought maybe it was colon cancer.

    • dontgetblocked

      That’s why she gives Medical Minutes. She knows what she’s talking about and this young man did not die from IBS which is not fatal.

    • dontgetblocked

      What’s wrong with telling the truth?

    • dontgetblocked

      Sorry, I’ve lost co-workers and it’s hard.

    • Passion

      He sure did, he looked exactly like this! My SIL brother died of AIDS, his bowels ruptures and it poison his system. My friends son is positive and looks very healthy and is still out there doing the do, he always talk about the straight married men he be sleeping with!

    • shun king

      yes we do but due to human nature a person can make bad decisions when faced with these supreme manipulators, who are out here spreading it like that animal coach.did those boys get to choose?

    • dontgetblocked

      They also use drugs to lessen their chances of getting infected. A lot of people are taking risks and are careless with their health. Once they’re diagnosed, they pretend they don’t have it.

    • Quitedeliteful

      Good luck wit the Dotards! I hope they don’t get your blood pressure up….

    • dontgetblocked

      My Gawd! Whitney….sigh. I’m just going to leave her and Bobbi alone. It’s too sad.

    • Evillene

      Yes. It’s called AIDS.

    • dontgetblocked

      She lost her to drugs. Let’s just drop it. Her whole story is just depressing. To have it all…and lose everything …even her child to drugs.

    • Evillene

      Well…the only thing I can get with here is that IBS is NOT a fatal condition (in almost all cases). IBS is manageable, and increasingly, even treatable. To the extent those pictures of Mychael are real, it should be noted that IBS does not cause physical wasting. Bowel cancer does cause physical wasting. Someone who suffers from IBS could be at greater risk for bowel cancer.

    • RICHIE_RICH

      Who’s to say?

    • RICHIE_RICH

      I wonder why some people are fascinated by his cause of death? RIP Mike, you always had a beautiful soul.

    • hotlantaboss

      He mentioned in one of his twitter messages that he had attempted some sort of herbal remedy. Totally speculative, but if he was indeed positive and abandoned his prescribed medication for some sort of herbal remedy, this is (and always will be) the result. I’ll never understand what could prompt someone to gamble in such a way. I know quite a few people who are HIV positive and live normal lives with essentially no issues. But they all take their medication religiously.

    • Django the God

    • Oh Tommie

      I’m sure he didn’t intend for it to be the front page image of him after his death, but I digress. Happy blogging. 🙂

    • hottlanta

      Wow are you trying to say I am making light of her death. No I am not. I just said we didn’t need to know she had dentures and we didn’t need to know that was too much information. We knew she died from drugs. I stand by what I said.

    • Missy

      Wait…Thts really him??

    • Bossy704

      My cat has IBS. I have to get expensive food and occasionally expensive meds but she is good now. I didn’t think IBS was a “wasting” disease. If anything it distends the stomach, but I am not a doctor.

    • Hmmm~?

      If you’re sexually active, you should be getting tested for HIV/STIs regularly. In today’s age, there is absolutely no excuse for someone unknowingly having HIV long enough for it to progress into AIDS. It doesn’t matter if you’re a man or woman, if you’re black and sexually active, you’re at risk. Getting tested is free and takes no longer than 15 minutes. Death is semi-preventable if you actually give a damn.

    • R in NYC

      His severe IBS caused him to have holes in his intestines. Where’s the info on that?

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      yep. I noticed the drastic weight loss on his IG many months ago. U could clearly look and tell something terminal was going on.

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      I was about to post never hearing a case of anyone dying from IBS, but what do I know?

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      My aunt was full blown and cold turkey, she stopping taking her meds because “I’m tired of taking all those pills.” She was married, so I can’t say how she even contracted it.

      In her last months of living, she was sleeping sitting straight up and would still have uncontrollable nose bleeds and very thin skin. In the hospital where she passed, the drs kept telling the family not to touch her because the slightest rub against or touch of her skin caused her to bleed. I know all too well the consequences of coming off the meds.

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      I’m melting away…no more popeye’s spicy chicken with biscuits. He had something way worse all along.

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      bowels ruptured? damn.

    • SouthernGirlAZWorld

      My supervisor has it and although quite manageable it took a good minute for them to find a medication that would work for her.

    • Guest©

      He will RIP regardless. I’m not sure who stated he died of IBS but they were very irresponsible for that. I have IBS and to have ppl thinking it causes premature death was/is fearmonging. I don’t know how he died but it would’ve been best not to mention IBS as a cause of death because everyone saw through that one.

    • Guest©

      Thanks Sandra. I manage my IBS through my diet. I did get a little scared when this whole this happened because I have it and no doctor told me it would shorten my life. I appreciate you putting up facts. It’s no ones business how he died but don’t lie and scare others with the condition.

    • isaiit

      Sandra Rose you are a jerk for keeping your cavalier style reporting afloat. When a heterosexual man dies of anything nobody screams aids but anytime a perceived gay man dies the majority of folks scream aids or hiv. You should be ashamed of yourself. You are no better than Trump with all of the misconceptions he has about people of color. Do better. I know you don’t have much morals spreading gossip and all but sheesh have the least bit of some decorum

    • Guest©

      If you go to the original post of this man’s death you will read the comments where ppl really believed he died of IBS even after using Google. Since I’ve had ibs since my teens, I tried to educate but ppl wanted to believe what they wanted to believe. Denial is a mfer!

    • Guest©

      Whats “dotards”?

    • T865!

      IBS is not a terminal illness. People with IBS are more likely to die from other conditions, such as AIDS, intestinal infections, or other intestinal disorders, such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, or colon cancer.

      Are you saying this man had AIDS?

    • Oya Shango

      True. No one actually dies from AIDs. They die from a compromised immune system where opportunistic bacteria, viruses, protozoa etc., take advantage of this, proliferate and kill them. When this weaponized virus was first released in the community, I did much research to learn all that I could, because so many people that I loved were contracting it and dying. I am convinced it is a depopulation bio-weapon that was genetically constructed to infect African people at a higher rate than any other race. There is no such virus that ever existed in African history that directly was transmitted via sexual contact. All STDs prior to this were brought here by the Europeans.

    • Guest©

      Im not overweight but i do get bloated. I dont eat foods that trigger IBS such as diary, redmeat, fried foods, high processed foods….. I don’t get diarrhea but I do get constipated, sorry for the tmi.

    • Guest©

      The truth is treated as lies these days, smh. This is a backwards world.

    • Jay Nation

      So true. Why is it so hard for people to remember the good about a person’s life? Who’s concerned over the cause of anyone’s death other than sick-minded people?

    • isaiit

      I couldn’t agree more why do you feel the need to know what a stranger died from. Her first post threw shade at him saying he dressed the strippers in Atlanta or something like that. WTH? His family and loved ones are grieving but you want to run post on something she knows nothing about. Did his doctor tell you what you are reporting? I’ll wait… she’s a sad miserable key board thug

    • isaiit

      I can’t believe that 14 people agreed with you. You can deflect the newbie but let’s focus on the truth. You were a shady jerk when you wrote the first post about him and even worse when you set your fingers to type this ish. So it begs to be asked why not post the pic of him surrounded by his models? Cause you’re petty about a man who died. Petty to post this as his family puts him the ground. You have to be over 50 and I’m being generous… who still acts like a two year old with no filter

      Yes you did. It’s an insult to everyone’s intelligence to say you didnt

      this man was gay as a billy goat is black and white, he died from AIDS instead of his family covering it up they need to be teaching the public as a lesson because AIDS is real and its taking them out of here planet earth because he’s sick and tired of these gay and bisexual men and women

      I am very sorry for your loss Lorenzo. When I was younger a great aunt died of AIDS. We have a close family friend whose been positive since 1993. With the medication she’s been able to live a full life. Even beat breast cancer ? I’m so glad medicine has improved!

    • hotlantaboss

      Very sad story indeed. As a gay guy in my early 40’s, I honestly can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve seen this play out around me. My parents talk about the reality of seeing friends their age starting to pass on, then I thought about it… I’ve witnessed more deaths in my 20’s alone than they’ve seen in 70 years on this earth. I’m blessed to have managed to remain negative, but living through the 90’s was a harrowing experience. The last time I counted (I do that every so often) I came up with 36 guys who were all close friends, former co-workers, associates etc. who died between 94 and 2006 alone.

      I lost a dear friend like that. She would go to the doctor to find out what was wrong with her but she wouldn’t take the medicine. She would go to the natural path store and take their supplements. When she saw that the natural medicine wasn’t helping her she wanted to go back to taking the doctor medicine to get better it was too late. I cried when she said “I want to live”. I tell people all the time be careful with those so called natural remedies it can kill you. I miss her to this day.

    • NicoleZee

      Is that what sepsis can really do to you??? I had sepsis years ago after having tonsillitis. They sent me to the critical unit. I thought they sent me in there to die but I ended up being okay. Damn, any kind of illness can seemingly kill you I guess. No one is safe. I just hope people take care of their health. Hell, if something is wrong, sometimes it’s best to just go to the ER, at least they will find out everything that’s wrong with you even if you have to stay in there for almost 2 days until you see a damn doctor!

    • NicoleZee

      I didn’t know someone could allegedly die from IBS. And something else I don’t understand is that after a person has died, why are families so secretive abut their cause of death??? They’re dead, so they can’t do anything else in the world, so why be evasive or dishonest about how they died??? To each their very own, but I just think honesty can bring awareness about certain health issues.

      I really don’t understand why everybody is shooting Sandra down for posting this pic its not like she went on his death bed and took an illicit pic.

      I don’t know if I think it is AIDS. I’ve seen someone die from that and they certainly weren’t walking around taking pics and participating in anything like Fashion Week. I agree that there was something else but if you’ve actually seen someone die from HIV, they weren’t walking around and smiling for selfies a week before. He was a great talent. Whatever and whomever he chose to share his bed with is irrelevant to me. May be rest in eternal peace

    • YES I SAID IT…

      Its sad to say that he died of complications of AIDS! I don’t know why people still try to hide it. AIDS still exist and we as people still need to make others aware that it is out there and that it is still killing people. I know a lot of people that says AIDS is not a death sentence anymore that you can live with it forever as long as you take medicine, well damm! All I know is people need to not be a shame of it and speak on it so they can help save other lives

    • YES I SAID IT…

      I agree with u on everything you said.

      I wasn’t putting her down I was putting down the fact that we didn’t need to know about her dentures and the dead need to be sacred. That ain’t saying nothing bad about her it was complaining about that be exposed to the media. I stand by what I said. You can interpret that anyway you want to but you are not gonna put words in my mouth about the dead. Reading is fundamental.

    • INDUSTRY GURU

      There is a new much more virulent and deadly strain of AIDS, none of the new medical treatment advances work on this strain. My understanding is that the birth place of this new and improved strain of AIDS is Cuba, it began traveling fast and was first discovered to have spread to Brazil, Puerto Rico, and Atlanta….of course it has expanded rapidly. Incidentally these are all the hot locations for the selling of underground transgender hormones, people in the US procure the drugs and smuggle them here for sale on the black market, sales are booming. These are also well known SEX TOURIST locations.

      This new strain can go zero to death in 3 months, which would explain why quite of few celebs in gospel industry, fashion industry, and music industry as of late went from looking healthy to looking violently ill in just a few months, then suddenly pass, of an unexplained ambiguous illness.

      Interesting there has been very little media attention on this.

    • Drea982

      This is VERY interesting. Thanks for sharing, I’m going to look into this.

    • klwbaby

      Like I said originally, none of the links said anything about AIDS. Which is true, right? So I commented that u included AIDS because u think that’s why he died. We can go back and forth with this, but if the family said he died from IBS then that’s what happened. End of a discussion. Have a nice day.

    • Guest©

      I will. Just remember, you’ve had pizza before so you are not missing anything. That’s what helps me not to indulge. Your lunch sounds good though.

    • Mike Jones

      Terrible to insinuate that this man died of aids and try to use ibs as a cover for it, then when someone calls you out for it in the comments, you play dumb. You knew what you were doing when you wrote it. Just sad. May he Rest In Peace.

    • Drea982

      Medical records are private so the only people who deserve to know what he had are those he CHOSE to tell, and his sexual partners. I don’t know why people think him telling his status can be used as a teaching tool. It’s 2017. Everyone knows the risks of unprotected sex. If his family is “covering it up” they are well within their rights. Yeah from the looks of things it’s either Aids or Cancer but revealing his status isn’t necessary to teach the black community anything. It’s just spilling tea. Aids has been running rampant for decades and everyone knows what you risk when you go bareback. People need to use condoms, limit amount of sexual partners, and get tested together. Stop humping around like there’s no tomorrow. Our society over sexualizes EVERYTHING. Be careful out here in these streets if you must be in them. You don’t even have to be promiscuous to get caught slipping that’s why I said get tested together. Even if you’re married make sure you do it. People can’t always be trusted.

    • LeXx

      Lol Sis PLEASE!!! you wrote this being malaise.. Just say the man was “allegedly” positive n he passed due to complications… Your not a medical Anything and the sufferers you are referring need to go to the doctor and not read your opinionated “medical minute” bc yr nothing but a gay black trump supporter blogger

    • OP2

      Exactly! I know a number of adults & children who have IBS. It has never come close to be a death sentence.

      Unlike yesteryear, no longer will any HIV patient be written off as dying (or died) from AIDs.

      -it will be anything but that to remove the stigma.

    • OP2

      To take the stigma out of HIV, no patient will no longer have AIDs written on their death certificate. -expect to see cause of death as cancer, pneumonia/flu, IBS, etc..

      Yet, the SCAM is to keep alive those charities raising funds for AIDs, although no one is said to ever again be dying from AIDs.

      -they can’t have it both ways. Either AIDs still exist or it doesn’t!! ijs

    • klwbaby

      Thank u for writing this. In this day and age, if u don’t know the consequences of having unprotected sex, then his death will not change that.

Hope you don’t block me coz I so like to read yr font. But if you do ah well

    • Chocolate

      I hear u, but typically when heterosexual men die, a cause of death is freely given and If they were ill, that was known beforehand. Awareness is beneficial, especially for the person affected bc their platform affords them resources and opportunities that may increase and extend their quality of life. So when they don’t take advantage of this self-serving edge, its fishy.
      I agree with u tho, the speculation is in bad taste but I can’t see any way around it when they are cloak and dagger abt their illness and death.

      This is funny because I know you spin stories for gain, however, this is the one post that actually makes sense. I didn’t get the feeling that you were trying to insinuate anything other than what people with IBS deal with and lets be real, when people try to cover up something it’s usually something that brings shame and controversy, so I say that to say, they don’t have to tell anyone anything. They owe us NATHAN and I respect that. People cared and loved him so naturally they would want to know especially if the last time the seen or heard him he appeared healthy. He died mysteriously and naturally that raises speculation too. Remember The ‘True Blood’ Actor Nelsan Ellis family shared the circumstances of his death due to alcoholism? To each his own.

      On Topic/ Off Topic: Why do people say RIH? I assume it means Rest In Heaven? Are real Christians(Christ Followers) saying this? Have they not read the bible?Are we (maybe I have too) just saying this because it sounds good? Don’t they/we know that people who die are not in the presence of God, that when you die, you are dead in every way? A soul is not a ghost that lives on after the body dies. There are a significant number of scriptures that let us know that when a person dies, These verses are very clear, the dead are not celebrating in the presence of God. All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return.
      they are dead and awaiting the Rapture or resurrection, your choice.

      This has been your spiritual minute.

    • hotlantaboss

      The first HIV case that I witnessed was my sophomore year of college. One of my friends (who was admittedly promiscuous) was diagnosed with both HIV and Syphilis in 94; I was only 19 at the time. I mean, I went from high school not even knowing anyone who had Mono, straight to this type of thing within a years time. It’s indescribable to witness people you actually know deteriorate before your eyes as frequently as it was happening at the time. I was always somewhat prudish… which probably saved me so I’m grateful.

I explained to her the power of boosting her overall PH level in her body to fight off disease and what ever toxins that were trying to take over her body. We immediately began a detox. We as condition people think the doctors have all the answer. We have to fight also. I taught my mom the power of Chlorophyll, Wheat Grass, Alkaline Water. All the power of Alkalizing the body and getting as close to 7 as possible. As of today she is healthier. No more cramping, bleeding etc… and she still drinks wheatgrass and chlorohyll 3x’s a day to keep her healing.
