Hi my name is Luis and new to this wonderful website. I was infected exactly two years ago and have not been dealing with my HIV status the way I am suppose to and have lived these two years with many fears to confront my reality. My family and friends know about my status and they have been super supportive, more than I think I deserve. I was involved with drugs and was quite promiscuous even after several STD scares I continued to live life in the fast lane. I am currently on medications and despite the horrific side-effects i suffered in the beginning I am currently doing well. I've been coming to this website and reading several threads for quite sometime but have not bothered to become a member but feel like I can learn alot and perhaps share my story with any people who have been recently diagnosed. I would also like to give my admiration to those people who have been living with HIV for many years and are still with us, without you the contributions of you guys perhaps I would be in a different state of mind now.

Luis

Hi Luis.

Welcome to the forum.  It's nice to meet you.  I'm not sure we will help you escape from all of your fears but we can certainly try.  You've got family, friends and now us.  That's a good trifecta you've got going for you and it wouldn't surprise me to see you opening up a lot of new doors.

robert

ps...congratulations on your graduation also!

Heya Luis! Welcome to the forums. I think it's terrific that your family and friends are so supportive.

As to the fear, I hope you will find this foum a safe place to talk about it... and maybe even get some tips for overcoming it.

Hello Luis,

Welcome to the forums and I hope that you will find many of the answers you seek by reading through the threads and starting your own, like this one.  As I read through your post I was struck by many comments you made and I would just like to add some perspective on some of the feelings you have expressed.  You say you have been poz now for two years and do not feel that you are dealing with your status as you should and my suggestion to you is that there is no right or wrong way to deal with becoming poz.  You do what you have to start adjusting and that adjustment can take so many forms that all that matters is you find your own path using whatever support you find works for you.

That leads me to my second suggestion and that would be for you to start working on forgiving yourself for whatever role you may have played in becoming poz.  Yes easier said than done, but until you learn to really love yourself (with forgiveness being one of the highest levels of self-love) how will you ever feel worthy of being loved by others?  And if you do not love yourself enough, you will see no reason to take care of yourself and to accept the support that is lovingly given to you by others, both personally and through these forums.

Luis, my friend, you have done nothing to deserve being infected with HIV and nobody here cares how you became infected, only that you are and that you found your way here.  Welcome to the forums and the family you will find contained within.  While we can never tell you how your journey with HIV will unfold, we can guarantee that you will never have to walk alone as we will be there when you need us.

Welcome to the AIDSmeds family.

Welcome Louis,

Thanks for the very informative post and it is good to see you finally came in and posted.  I hope you find what you need here, and I trust that you will be a help to others at the same time.  This is truly the best of both worlds.

Thank you Carol. I must admit, being diagnosed with HIV kind of Tampered with my religious faith but I've learned to accept my mistakes and I am responsible for my actions. I am a content individual who loves Christ and I love all people who are genuinely nice regardless of their religion.

Luis,

I agree completely.  I think that all religions have an underlying message, and that message is kindness.  Bhudists, Jews, Christians, etc. all believe that kindness is the ultimate path the enlightenment.  Some extreme factions of any group lose the message of kindness.

I am not sure if God exists, but the cohesion that religion should bring I think is good.  Sadly, religion has brought a lot of bad too.

That doesn't mean that you should lose any of the hope and strength that your faith provides you.

Hello Luis,

Iím not normally one to discuss my spiritual beliefs in public, but I do also have faith (uncategorized) and have friends of various beliefs Ė mostly Buddhist, Christian and Jewish. My strong non denominational faith in a loving God has given me more than I would have had without it. Mainly, the ability to grow and thrive in "the big bad world" while living with the challenge of HIV/AIDS. I am certain a loving God exists because I have years of personal experiences that wiped away any previous doubting.

To me, love in action can be a powerful and healing force. I hope you are met with lots of that during your experience here.

Ditto.  I think one should also be suspect of anyone who posts 35 times in about 6 hours.  He was working miracles.

Edited to add:  I can actually ignore them now, they took up way to much space with all the pictures and stuff.

It's VERY offensive considering the huge amount of time that this forum spent after IHH's diagnosis propping him up on countless threads.  It's unfortunate that he sought refuge in the Unholy Trinity and was seemingly convinced that everyone here is evil and must be fought with espionage, including the use of defamatory and libelous  blog postings with imagery directed at various and sundry members.

I try to adhere to not holding a grudge at people for things, but I'd be lying if I said I planned on doing that in this case.

Really!  I read JK's thing about "3 hours from start of thread to bustage".  Let's face it:  we all can truthfully deduct about 2:55 from that time.  Most of that time was spent discussing the fraud amongst ourselves whilst we waited for mods to show. 

And like when Peter said, "We've been had"...all I could think of was, "not really".  A few people posted welcomes here and there early on, but that's just cuz we're all so warm and friendly here, ya know?

I feel bad that Joe took the time to respond so thoughtfully to the initial post of "Luis," only to learn that he was a fraud.

To misquote The Bard, "the quality of mercy is not strained."

Even though Joe's (and everyone elses) kind words and warm welcome were directed to a trouble making sock-puppet doesn't mean that they were wasted.

The inherent kindness of such intentions never are.

Me thinks CarolAnn should go directly to the light.......................and keep on going.

You better be careful. People may start to think that you really are not that mean in real life.

Wow,

It's getting as bad as the fears section. OK, not quite.

Jesuslovesyou. I must admit that this name raised my eyebrows a bit. I can't get into the head of people who do that. I well remember the somaforu incident. That was just weird.

Well, Jesuslovesyou is off in cyberspace performing all his miracles...latest one; wine into urine.

They may give you food for thought, but they should not direct you to do anything but fuel discussion.
