I've been a member for just over a week so I thought it was time I introduced myself and explained why I'm here. I'm Mary I live in the Uk and two weeks ago my cousin told me he is poz he has known since early Jan 08. He had been worried about telling me I reasured him that I still think of him as one of my best mates and that would not change.
He seems to be handeling his diagnosis quite well, I looked on the net found this site and here I am
