Well I am quite new to the whole HIV / Meds related aging issue, but I am aging, and now I get to throw HIV into the mix. I like to accept it and know it will be a reason for future aches and pains, ones I already have just intensified, I can deal with that. I am far from the way I was physically just ten years ago, aging catches up with all of us, HIV or not. Time marches on and soon we come to realise it's marching right over our bodies!

I respect those that have blazed the way with HIV as people living with it since it's early days to researches constantly finding the next best thing to make our lives a little easier. I am thankful to organizations helping those without a support network realise they are not alone (the body website being one of them). To medical teams around the world helping in every way, and of course to my medical team especially, who look at me as a friend and not a number or patient "suffering" ... they make it not a big issue for me!

The best is of course to accept it, enjoy each day, praise to the power and maker, and of course to know that the person next to you might be suffering just a little more. The key is to enjoy your normal life, your family and friends, your community ... and always, just let HIV come along for the journey, never let it drive the bus!!!

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