Best Ways to Develop Support
      #37692 - 07/31/02 12:50 PM

I'm 30 y/o, newly poz (May '02) looking for advice on developing some support networks. I recently moved to a mid-size midwest city, so I'm basically surrounded by strangers. I've got a few lifelines always availible by phone that helped me pull through the first couple of months. My numbers are good, my attitude is great, but I know that I need to find some long-term supporative folks. What's the best way to reach out and try to make connections relative to being poz?

It would be great if you could say what city you are from...there are lots of AIDS organizations you can go to, depending on where you live. YOu can join a support group there or volunteer! Also it depends on if you are gay or straight, male or female...there are lots of support groups for each possibility.
