Dear Phoenix1012:

Many thanks for your kind reply. I would like to again wish you all the best for a long and happy life and a good professional life/career. I think that today there is much optimism for not only the current "state of the art" of HIV treatment, but also for future advances that will at least improve the length and quality of our lives as people living with HIV infection.

The reason I responded to your post in the way I did--having been on disability benefits for a considerable period of time now--is that I have found that many people make judgements and assumptions once one discloses this personal information. In fact I now rarely disclose my employment/labour force status, and often respond to queries concerning this, that I am employed in the occupation (technician) that I left when I applied for and received benefits in 1995/1996. Once this detail has been disposed of in social conversations, we can proceed to much more interesting discourse. I find that many people who are in fact HIV-negative and employed, often prefer to leave work matters behind and engage in conversations about matters removed from that realm.

I just wanted to encourage you that people from all sorts of backgrounds and socio-economic strata can offer interesting ideas and perspectives that enrich our lives.

Mr. or Ms. Phoenix 1012, please once again accept my best wishes for all aspects of your life Please feel free to keep in touch and let us know how you are doing--best of luck.

Sincerely,

Wayne
