Im brazilian, journalist, 39 years old, positive since 1999. After three decades of epidemy this Ben Shilts book is true. Life is here, Aids is not a death sentence, i´ll survive ( like Gloria Gaynor song), but as I died. When I discovered positive almost seven years ago, I was strong, but drugs, depression, a self-destructive attitude have change my life. No job, no money, no friends, living with my parents again, I´m alone in a desolate dark, but I´m sure I need lots of things to do. I´m journalist, MA in film with a tesis about Pedro Almodóvar´s film (1995), experience in television and video. And in my country I live a social death. No chances for positives. And my country is consider an example to fight AIDS epidemy. Dear friends all over the world. Write me, I´m alone, need to share my problems, listen ideas, etc.. my e-mail is

All the best for everybody

I am a 47 year old white male who just tested positive on 12 Nov. of 05 and have a roller coaster of emotions. Had a major flu bout for about 2 weeks in early november which prompted my going to get tested. Was told to be gentle on myself and to get the facts together with an hiv specialist. I also have felt a significant amount of lonliness. just moved to atlanta, georgia from the san fransisco area. Am currently looking for a support group. trying to live one day at a time. Hope we can all continue to support and love each other because it is so important.
With love and hugs
