1 year positive!!
      03/20/10 09:45 PM

Hi Everyone,

I`ve been HIV positive for 1 year now and felt i should post something!! In particular, for those people who are where i was this time last year... a bad place.... to say the least!!

Believe me when i tell you that life does go on!!! Ok, it`s extemely difficult to accept this news!! But staying in bed with the curtains closed feeling sorry for yourself will not change things... in fact that will make it worse!!

I`m glad i found the strength to realise that there are worse things in this world than living with HIV!! reach out to associations, a close friend , people on this site... whatever you need to help you get through this!! i did and it helped me so much... Thank you to so many people (in particular one in Florida.. wink!)

I`m a 33 year old gay male ... it took me a long time to realise that i`m not alone in all this and it`s not the end of the world!! now i want to live life to the full... holidays etc... and meet that special someone!!! i believe that will happen!!!! that will be my next post!!!

If you have have just been diagnosed.. don`t give up!! there are people worse off!!! and there are many killers out there (Cancer, car accidents etc)... get out there and live your life and enjoy it!!! `cos we never know wht tomorrow will bring!!!
