Hi DW. 

Newly diagnosed and already thinking about survival strategies.  I'd say you've tapped into one avenue yourself. 

The secret to longevity in HIV is that there is no secret.  At least, none that you can hang your hat on.  Each of us must find the path in our own way.  But, if pressed to give some answer, I'd say that honesty and stability are key. 

Stepping outside yourself also seems to be a big factor.  For many of us it's a well partnered life full of love, openness, and respect for one another.  Volunteerism for it's true value, and that is volunteerism without expectation of reward or recognition, does that pretty well, too. 

Otherwise, HIV/AIDS is like a good suit.  It fits everyone differently.

Thanks Gib
If thats what it takes,then I expect a long a happy life. Those are the very same values I ty and live my life by. That may explain that I've lived with this virus for at least 8 years and have yet, thank God to be sick.In fact,I feel better than ever.I have a beautiful healthy wife and 2 gorguous babies (3 and 7 months) so I'll just keep doing what I'm doing.
Thanks for your reponse my friend...Stay well!

Looks to me like you're batting a thousand.  You have at least four things to help you step outside yourself ... wife, two lovely children, a family.  Just remember, above all these things is love, and to love, you must make yourself worth being loved.  Stay with it young one.  There are those who will try to knock you off your mission.  Beware of that.  You alone hold the key.
