When Being Poz Is No Longer Your Main Thought Each Day
« on: June 10, 2008, 08:14:07 PM »
Like my title says l have come realize over the last three months that being poz is no longer something l dwell on or even think about much.The only time it crosses my mind now is when l am running low on my meds or have to see the dotor/lab.Or when it comes to dating and knowing you have to have the talk.That still is for me emotionally very hard.

I have been so busy with work,my dad ,friends etc that being poz is at the bottom of my list now.

I know that right now l am in a good place in life and that helps.


Is this when you know you have accepted what has happened? That you cannot change it but damn you can live with it after all.

I personally think there are levels of acceptance of this. Sometimes you get to stop worry about it... then you have reached a level of acceptance... but with the years, things might change and something new might come (related to your health but not necessarily related to hiv)... and then you realise our condition put us on a different position than others... and it might take you long to accept it... but eventually you will... then you reached another level of acceptance. A higher one.

I don't care how many levels of acceptance may be.... i am happy of being in the level i am and having overcome the initial fear... if something happen in the future... i will worry when it happens, not before. So my message is... live more and worry less :)
