Response from Mr. Shernoff

It sounds like you are very depressed. If you are living in London there are many palces to turn to for help like Pink Therapy services. If you live outside of London there are still AIDS service organiztions you can call to make an appointment to beign counseling. You just need to do a little research to find the one that is nearest to where you ive. They will offer confidential mental health counsleing services, whihc you sound like you could greatly benefit from. You do not have to go through this alone. Use your skills with the Internet to locate a counseling service near you and call them to beign to get the help you need and deserve.
