LOL! You're screen name is great dude! Laughter is good for the soul and what's good for our soul is good for our bodies. My partner and I tested positive last week, so we're going through the same damn shit. I feel the need to reach out, share my story, share info, listen and support others.

Be well!

Hi Rick:

Just tested poz last week as did my honey. We're doing everything we can to get a defined diagnosis and get on meds as required. I am also seeing a nutritionist and we are both seeing counselors. From everything I've been reading the prognosis IS GOOD. Even though my CD4 counts are a sucky 183 and I'm in my 40's so the generation of new cells that may be missing in my infection resistance profile may not be able to be regenerated...there are drugs, treatments, therapies and holistic approaches to living that will keep me healthy and happy a long time.

I am looking to share experiences and info with others. The one thing that seems to resonate among all the info I've read so far is this condition is really complex and it's a completely different experience for everyone.

The other thing that POZ peeps say is YOU GOTTA TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME! :-) Be safe, be healthy, take care of yourself.

God is within.
