Hi from the UK.

Hi Folks. Well, I had written a nice load of text but then I pressed the wrong button and it all went!

Anyway I was just saying hello. I found out I was positive on the 29th January and I'm going for my first set of bloods after the initial consult. I'm very grateful of the NHS and the centre I go to has been excellent. I've had counselling and lots of support. My first set of results were CD4 986 or 58% and my VL (chiron) 3500.

Anyway I wanted to say I really love this site i find the interactivity a good thing as I tend to come on everyday to see if there's any new news or stuff.

I do have a question and it's this. I've not told anybody about my status yet. I told my dentist as I know him personally and I'd like to think it would be of benefit to me. Apart from him I've told no-one and I'm not ready too just yet. I just feel like once you've told somebody you can't untell them. So my question is this. "How long was it for you before you told people and (in the main part) how was their reactions.

Thanks a lot & I'll let you know what my results are. (They've got this e-results service which I'm joining which means I just go in tomorrow evening and they email me my figures so I don't have to take time off work!)
