  • I must be a survivor in many ways...
Anger has caused many a fight on here and I certainly am not an exception to the rule.
My anger is mostly triggered by the harshness of people and their rudeness.

What I have witnessed on here, while Dan was in hospital, is the fact that, when it is needed, support comes first and all fights are put aside.

This is why I joined this place in the summer of 2005.
I had lived , and almost died of, HIV for almost 20 years. But never looked for support or talked about my infection.
These Forums gave me the chance to freely talk about AIDS, about my struggle and the challenges.
I flew to Toronto, only days after I joined, and experienced a transformation within me through the massive love and support of many of you still participating.

This time it was your help and your love you showed me and Dan, while he was in the hospital.

This is not going to be forgotten, by either Dan, nor myself.
Being 5000 miles apart brings a pitifully smile on many faces... poor you....
You , yes all of you on here, have made me feel as through your voice, your words, your prayers, I could be with Dan.
Talking about healing powers.

Each night when I went to bed, alone, I reread the thread and all of your words.
Thank you for holding my hand in the darkness. Thank you for loving me for who I am, not for what I have.

Complete strangers and some of you good and dear friends have lifted me, higher then you will ever imagine.

My gratitude's,  I hope, will be with you for ever.

Dear Herman,

May all the love come back to you, one hundred-fold.

For those who have never met our Herman, he is one of the kindest, sweetest, and most genuine people I know.   He has a glow about him....I think he has a very tender and caring heart, and a beautiful soul.

Love to you and Dan,

Alan   :-*
