I'm positive I'm happy to be here

(1/3) > >>

Hey, ladies.

I'm really happy to be here. I posted an intro on the "I just tested poz" forum, although more accurately, I just tested poz for the HIV I've had for three and a half years or so. I want to say something specific to being in this situation, and being a woman: being a woman's got its challenges any day of the week. To be HIV+ and female is more challenging still... and for me, being in my very early 20s, and poz, was quite a shock. I'm happy I've found you here, though. There's nothing I'd like better than to get to know some of you (heck, all of you!) pretty well.

I'm constantly tired and thanks to a new job, also constantly busy, but I've found a few things help a LOT.... sleep, friends, family, faith, fun and cuddly cats, as well as good books and the odd cup of tea. I don't know about you, but the above really help me out when I'm stressed and needing some down time. (My VL needs some down time, too! Heh. Bad joke, eh.)

Anyways.... a warm hello to you ladies. Right now, I'm not terrified. I was when I found out I was HIV+, and that I'd had it for some time, and that my CD4 wasn't very good.... but now that I've gotten a chance to think, I've found that being open and being able to talk and being able to pray and laugh and question and everything are just great... and I hope I can do all the above here.

Be back later. =)


Welcome Angels,
Glad to hear your in such great spirits. Having a good attitude is really helpful in long term acceptance/outcome  of the disease.
I'm really sorry to hear that your're so young, because it really difficult, I know been there, done that.
I just wanted to let you know that you are more than welcome, and I hope that we women are of some solice to you, as they have been for me.
Welcome again,

Hi Angels

Welcome to the forums.

I have always believed that a good attitude and knowlegde is the best medication.

I hope you stay around and take part in some of the other forums.."Living with" and "Off topic" will find that the guys here are a good bunch and are always willing to help with advise, so don't be shy in asking any questions you may have.

Look forward to hearing more from you.


Hi Angel;

Am so happy to have you on board, am happier still that you have found peace and are able to laugh, and pray.  I have found that laughter and prayer are  the best medicines and since finding out 8/2/04 I have been open and honest, with little to no rejection, those who have shunned me their lost, those who accept me my treasures.

I hope that this community is as helpful to you as it has been to me...

lots of hugs and prayers

Hello CAA,

I had just turned 24 when I found out and its been 13 years.  I am new to the forums and I love these women so very much aready!  I am never lonely when I am here and I am getting more strength every day from these posts.  I am considering becoming more open about my status in order to weed out the truly bad people in my life, as they come along.  I am pretty much a loner now, dating some and NOT disclosing very often.  I don't really have any "best friends" anymore.  I have chosen to keep myself "safe" and I feel that I am letting life pass me by.  I am so thrilled that you are here reaching out, too!  These women here can really help lift your spirits, everyone has such a twisted sense of humor, and it can really help you to escape, laugh and get through any rough times! 


Cindy   :D
