Any Worried Students?
      #13208 - 12/05/00 12:08 AM

I was wondering if there were any college (or even high school) students out on the boards worried about possibly being infected and waiting out the window period. Are any of you finding ways to cope and comfort yourselves during this period?

There are some helpful people here to talk to or chat with. If you go to the chat room at night, you can talk to people about your concerns. You can get some good advice. Be careful of some people though. If you talk too much they may kick you out or ignore you. Try to be calm.

It is not the purpose of the chatroom to have people engage in debates. I would just like to clarify that that venue is to allow people to vent their concerns and hear what others have to say. It is not a place where you can keep talking and not understand what is being said to you.

Bear in mind that we have regulars who are HIV-positive individuals and one must at least be sensitive in discussing any concerns. Bottom line -- think first before speaking.

Don't go in there expecting concrete answers. We have none to give. It is a hangout and its a heck of a lot cheaper than long distance phonecalls. We can only share experiences and possibly practical advice.
