Oh mom, how to explain this ... when we get HIV, as with other life "changing" illnesses and such, we get a new appreciation for who and what is around us. His "NO" could be his way of wanting you more in his life then he had before. He wants you to call everyday even just to say "hi" ... with HIV, I know for myself, I see things differently, I appreciate and respect others completely different to before.My peace of mind came with diagnosis and my health is great even with HIV. It changes us and sometimes for the better!

If you don't want to call him, that's your choice, but I bet under that tough guy exterior, after what he has been through, he would just like to hear mom's voice everyday, even just to say "hi". Don't wish to roll back time, take the moment and run with it ... enjoy that he is here, he is getting better and just know it's a new outlook that he is having, might come slowly but he is seeing things alot differently, and not always in a bad way!

With a diagnosis of "whatever" gives people the chance to reassess their lives, see where they came from and what they can change to make things better now. He might look like the same old W, but his outlook on life could be changing for the better right before your eyes!

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