Robert:
Keep giving us your monologues and make them as long as your want.  You'll always find someone here to read them.    Cliff answered just about all of your questions.  As you can see, just a turn in the road.  A different route, maybe, but you'll still get to where you're going.  Not to worry.  You can handle it.

I just want to reinforce disclosure, or lack of it.  Take your time before you tell anyone anything.  Once the word is out, that's it.

Dear B,
what you are saying is true.  Expressing yourself so clearly is a rare virtue.  It reminded me of  the lyrics of a song "Forever Young" by Alphaville.  I used to love this song (and still do) when I was a teenager in the fabulous 1980s!  Probably you were too young at that time. Lets dance in style, lets dance for a while
Heaven can wait were only watching the skies
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst
Are you going to drop the bomb or not?

Let us die young or let us live forever
We dont have the power but we never say never
Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip
The musics for the sad men

Can you imagine when this race is won
Turn our golden faces into the sun
Praising our leaders were getting in tune
The musics played by the madmen

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever and ever

Some are like water, some are like the heat
Some are a melody and some are the beat
Sooner or later they all will be gone
Why dont they stay young

Its so hard to get old without a cause
I dont want to perish like a fading horse
Youth is like diamonds in the sun
And dimonds are forever

So many adventures couldnt happen today
So many songs we forgot to play
So many dreams are swinging out of the blue
We let them come true

MoltenStorm:
Welcome B99!

"The invincibility of youth" ... that's a bugger that gets a LOT of people into trouble (i.e. drugs, driving too fast, etc).

You're not the only one having to face his mortality at a young age. I'm 22, and I just found out I was HIV+ in April of this year.

I don't want to sound like a broken record, so I won't. Just know that you're going to be fine, and your life is going to go on as it would have. All of the things that HIV requires you to do (diet, exercise, etc) are things you should do without HIV.

If you feel scared, angry, or sad, you can always post here, and you'll find people to lift you up or give you that shoulder to cry on.

Again, welcome!

Molten
