Title: My story isn't unique but I'd like to share. I'm a 41 year old....
Author: Anonymous

My story isn't unique but I'd like to share. I'm a 41 year old
gay male who tested positive in 1988. At the time I thought it
was the end and told my lover I wished for it to hurry up, kill
me and get it over with. Soon after, I came to my senses and
began living again. I've gone through most of the "cocktail"
options and unless they come out with some more new drugs, I'm
reaching the end of my choices. I took disability 3 years ago and
at the time didn't expect to live more that 18 to 24 months--but
here I am and feeling good. My CD4 count hasn't been over 65 in
about 4 years and viral load has fluctuated from a low of 4500 to
a high of 300,000--currently 46,000. I know this disease controls
much of our lives but we can't let it control our attitude
towards living. Everyone keep a positive attitude and share your
feelings with others. For it's in sharing we can uplift each
other and deal with all the emotional turmoil we go through.
