I recently found out I was positive. Sept 1 2005. Never gonna forget that date. Anyway, I went to a counselor the NEXT day and I've been seeing him ever since. I just wanted to tell EVERYONE that it has helped me so much in my struggle. I was a little skeptical at first, but I've embraced it and I've since become an advocate of counseling. I can't tell you all how beneficial it is. I'm not sure about your cities, but in Las Vegas they have a community counseling center that is free for recently diagnosed individuals. Looks into that for your cities. Even if you have to pay a small fee, your lives will be enriched.
The Funny thing is I rarely talk about HIV. I talk about all the other crap in my life. I am extremely blessed in my life- but still have the kinks to work out and talking to an objective person has given me so much perspective about my life and the lives of the people around me.
We're not alone guys....if we all face our fears head on, we'll be ok.

I have always had counceling in the back of my head. But you know, the friends I have made, the boses I have talked to. The doctors who I have talked with. The wonderful people on this site have propelled me through so many feelings. Its such a ride!!! I am glad I have the option of counceling if I need to...

God Bless
