No pointers, you have made it this far and doing great. The key is to just "toy around" with it and click on various things and they will open for you to read. Anytiime you want to comment on someone's post just click on the "reply" in the right hand corner, it opens your comment space towrite then just look for "post" and "continue", the prompts are quite good and easy to follow ... and you can't break it!

You've come this far and welcome, stick around and hope to see more posts from you in the future!

anotherday ... in paradise!
daily ponder ... be the reason someone smiles today!

Ask intelligent questions. Ask stupid questions. If you don't know something (and I imagine there's probably one or two things you haven't learned, yet) any question you ask is going to be an important question to you.

Read previous questions/comments and the responses that were given. Some of the topics can be very relevant years later. Some answers will change, because the field of HIV care is constantly changing. Getting better!

Tell us how you're doing. This is much more than your lab results from your latest blood work. How are YOU?

You're an individual person. Things are going to affect you. Not the same as everybody else, because you're NOT everybody else.

Be prepared for answers to questions. Most (not all) of the responses you'll get on this forum are from other people who are HIV+. Many of us have been living with this disease for years. Some of us for much longer than others, but everyone has an opinion on how to deal with it.

Don't be surprised if you're told many times to talk with your doctor/with the nurses at your clinic/with your case manager. They're people who you will form a relationship with to help keep you healthy. You may be one of hundreds at your clinic, but the people who work there really do care. I can tell you they aren't making the big bucks, so it must be love that holds them.

And, like you were told - try things to see what works and how to post here. You can't erase anything other than the post you spent an hour typing without getting it posted. (Been there! Done that!)
