my best is " this to, shall pass" it has helped me in a big way the past two months......
Bide the Wiccan law ye must,
In perfect love and perfect trust
Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill
An' ye harm none, do what ye will.

What ye send forth comes back to thee,
so ever mind the Law of three,
follow this with mind and heart,
Merry ye meet, and merry ye part.

Thirty rules for a good life…

1.   No one can ruin your day without YOUR permission.
2.   Most people will be about as happy as they decide to be.
3.   Others can stop you temporarily, but only you can do it permanently.
4.   Whatever you are willing to put up with is exactly what you will have.
5.   Success stops when you do.
6.   When your ship comes in, make sure you are willing to unload it.
7.   You will never “have it all together.”
8.   Life is a journey, not a destination. Enjoy the trip.
9.   The biggest lie on the planet: “when I get what I want I will be happy.”
10.   The best way to escape your problem is to solve it.
11.   I’ve learned that ultimately “takers” lose and “givers” win.
12.   Life’s precious moments don’t have value, unless they are shared.
13.   If you don’t start, it is certain you won’t arrive.
14.   We often fear the thing we want most.
15.   Everyone hears what you say. Friends listen to what you have to say. Best friends listen to what you don’t say!
16.   Yesterday was the deadline for all complaints.
17.   Look for opportunities, not guarantees.
18.   Life is what’s coming, not what was.
19.   Success is getting up one more time.
20.   Now is the most interesting time of all.
21.   When things go wrong, don’t go with them.
22.   Sometimes the majority only means that all the fools are on the same side.
23.   God can mend all broken hearts. You just have to give Him all the pieces.
24.   A person who asks a question might be a fool for five minutes, but a person who doesn’t ask, is a fool forever.
25.   A best friend is like a four leaf clover, hard to find, and lucky to have.
26.   A friend is someone who reaches for your hand but touches your heart.
27.   A coincidence is when God performs a miracle, and decides to remain anonymous.
28.   I don’t have to attend every argument I’m invited to.
29.   Your worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God’s grace and your best days are never so good that you are beyond the need of God’s grace.
30.   Our eyes are placed in front because it is more important to look ahead than to look back.

To "just testes poz' ;  I wish I had received all this great advice when I tested positive 25 years ago.  But, much like yourself, I too felt like I could throw myself over a bridge.  Looking into the abyss is horrid and I feel for you and myself all over again.  It is shock you're living now.  It will feel that way for a while, wisdom doesn't grow in a day or even a week; but takes root slowly and slowly you will climb out of this dark hole transformed into this new aspect of your life.  But indeed, do take deep breaths, sit quietly for a few minutes each day.  Free yourself from this darkness, there is light at the end of this tunnel.  My heart is with you.     Gisele
