No one understands!! Support group needed.
      #3656 - 04/27/00 02:49 AM

I need a support group with other heterosexuals who I can identify with. I live in NY, and the few times I've attended a group it was a disappointment, and I had nothing in common with them. Most of the people were a bit older than I am and were ex-addicts (sorry, no offense) and I feel left out. I get no encouragement. Prior to my diagnosis I was very fun and outgoing, but now it's the total opposite. I'm practically a HERMIT, because I went into seclusion. Most of my so called friends have disappeared and I need to have fun again with others in my situation. I don't even have the urge to do anything again because I keep dwelling on the past, and not moving on. I'm limiting myself to so many things. If anyone knows of a fun group in the NY area please write back, I'm tired of staying home feeling sorry for myself. Summer is soon here and I need to get back the social life I once had. Please help. No one else will understand. Please leave your email addresses and I'll write back.

Thank you
28/F/NY

Well your taking the first big step which is trying to communicate. I went through the same thing. I understand how you feel about support groups, I couldn't fit in either. Either I was too young or just couldn't relate. Most of the heterosexual groups I went to was attended mainly by people in rehab or much older then me. I'll be 27 this year. If you like, e-mail me at PRTia@aol.com. Just remember your not alone. And life is worth living and enjoying and that there are people out there just like you. Just wanting to live life and have fun.

I know thatthis is an old e-mail, but maybe for the next frustrated gal in New York looking for a peer...You know that there has GOT to be a bunch of us flaoting around in this city, it's just that we are all hiding. I am 31,Pos for 7 years, married to an HIV- guy for 4 years. Still loving life, and taking very good care of myself. I am looking to start a support group for thoughtful, health focused women who can't seem to find their peers. all of my girlfriends are HIV negative and I would like to change that. I do some volunteer work at Body Positive, my mother actually is running the Garden Gala Event in June. I was thinking of starting the group there. Pleease e-mail if this sounds interesting. jennabanenna@hotmail.com In the meantime I wish health and peace of mind to all of you.
