not everyone ok my friend I'm still trying to make my mind. I know I'm positive but really hard to deal with it. How you manage your fears?

I don't have any fears. What are you afraid of?

There really isn't anything to fear. Fear is just an emotional response to something we don't understand . So the way to conquer it is to understand about that which scares you which in this case is being HIV. I've been pos for over 20 years now and half the time I forget I'm even pos and the other half is only when I have to take one single pill. It's really nothing to be afraid of .

Hey, riverprincess! I agree wholeheartedly.

I do understand it's harder for some people given differences in geography and culture, but we can't control those. We can only live the best we can under whatever circumstances we happen to be in at the time.

I'm crazy lucky to be able to be positive and not have it affect my life all that much. Good luck to those of you in darker circumstances. Post here if you need support. I'm not always online, but if I am, I'll listen.

Stay strong.

Hey there
I was OK with being HIV+ until I got sick. I have never had much interest in my health so am now finding it difficult to manage my health. I now realise that if I don't do it no one else will. I am having trouble with conflicting advice from my GP, HIV doc, psychologist and psychiatrist. I have major depression but that has been on and off for years, long before hiv raised its ugly head, but is has gotten a lot worse since I got sick.

--------------------

Life's a bitch and then you die, but only if you're lucky!
