I applaud all you moderators on here. I am new to this site but have had a really good time reading and learning from you guys and everyone who posts.
Each moderator I find has such a unique perspective regarding this HIV journey thing. kicker is best when direct and too the point, river has the passionate approach, calming peoples nerves through words, crabman very technical and dry at times, the others I haven't really read to much on yet!
What you guys say is stuff I would say to alot of these people, and stuff that I like to hear for myself, as I learn and explore HIV (and people in general).
I have been finding alot of people on here (especially the "worried well" you refer to) ... sometimes I get the impression its just easier to hit them with the book then show them the pages ... or that old fish cliche of "feed them fish or teach them to fish", sometimes you need to add just push them into the water!!!
You guys are doing a great job and don't let anyone say anything differently, you commend when commendable, you stomp on when stompable, but all in all your points of view are very important.
For those coming to get a new perspective, take the information, take what you need out of the information and make the most of the HIV journey, that's all any of us can do with our lives!

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