Beginning week #2
      #169997 - 01/17/06 12:51 AM

First I want to thank everyone who has shared with me. It has been a big help this week to find this place and have some conversations. I have my first appointment with the HIV specialist tomorrow at 1 PM. I'm sure I won't know much more tomoorow but hopefully soon.

It's been a week of ups and downs. No more panic attacks after the first night but it sure does turn your whole world around. I've found out who some of my very best friends are. And of course, I've cried some. That didn't start till Saturday. But I've made the whole day today (so far) with no tears. Life goes on! I'm doing the things I'd normally do and now I'm thinking in terms of "days" since I was officially diagnosed and not "hours". It does bring you face to face with the fact that you are not invincible. And this summer I'm going to do the parasailing I've always wanted to do.

Thanks again! I'll let you all know what I find out in my doctor's visit.

Sustiva, Epivir, Videx EC

Keep up the good work, i know it is rough but people have been living 20 plus years with HIV/AIDS it will be a struggle. it is a good thing that you have a few friends who are also positive so you can have someone to share your feelingS with to understand where you are coming from KEEP YOUR HEAD UP I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST

Blixer, Make it want you want. Make it a struggle, or make it a success story. Only you can write your destiny. You shape the world YOU live in. I choose to make this a postive charecter defining aspect of my life. I will lead HIV to the four corners of the globe, its not going to LEAD me!
