1 year positive!!
      #249816 - 03/20/10 05:45 PM

Hi Everyone,

I`ve been HIV positive for 1 year now and felt i should post something!! In particular, for those people who are where i was this time last year... a bad place.... to say the least!!

Believe me when i tell you that life does go on!!! Ok, it`s extemely difficult to accept this news!! But staying in bed with the curtains closed feeling sorry for yourself will not change things... in fact that will make it worse!!

I`m glad i found the strength to realise that there are worse things in this world than living with HIV!! reach out to associations, a close friend , people on this site... whatever you need to help you get through this!! i did and it helped me so much... Thank you to so many people (in particular one in Florida.. wink!)

I`m a 33 year old gay male ... it took me a long time to realise that i`m not alone in all this and it`s not the end of the world!! now i want to live life to the full... holidays etc... and meet that special someone!!! i believe that will happen!!!! that will be my next post!!!

If you have have just been diagnosed.. don`t give up!! there are people worse off!!! and there are many killers out there (Cancer, car accidents etc)... get out there and live your life and enjoy it!!! `cos we never know wht tomorrow will bring!!!

Dreamer

Dreamer76 I just wanted to say that reading your post is incredibly uplifting. I'm currently playing the waiting game to see if a risky exposure has turned into a hiv diagnosis. It agonizing and I'm sick with anxiety over this. But reading your positvie post makes this whole thing a little easier.

Thanks fot your post, it really came at the right time. Stay well and I'll keep you in my thoughts.

I love your spirit and your thirst for life. I, at 25 years positive, can contest that life does go on, there is always hope, and there is always a new adventure. Take care my friend.
