Welcome to the forums.  I'm glad to hear you have such a supportive friend.  I think she gave some good advice.  I try to practice that way of thinking.  Doesn't work all the time, but seems to over the long-run.  Go out and have fun with your friend.  And, I'll look forward to hearing more from you.

Hi Mr. 2012,

Welcome to the forums.  :)

I had my first anniversary recently and I know the internal conflicts it brings about.

Look forward to your participation.

Be well!

Hey Mr,

Your friend is right. That's the way to look at life.

You're always welcome here to discuss anything in your life, both about HIV and not. You've probably already learned a lot about HIV. It is especially important to have a good working partnership with your primary doctor. And to ask questions when you need to.

Welcome to the site.
