Got a place to live in Kingsport TN
« on: October 02, 2006, 08:11:04 PM »
Hello forum family just wanted to let everyone know that this has started out to be a good week for me. I finally found a place to live here in Kingsport TN. Also I have a new roommate that is also HIV+. We are going to share expense's and pay as we go for the apartment. Things are finally going to be for the good for once in my life. No more living near my folks and doing more for me thinking more for myself and trying to get on with my life. Everything else has been going great with my life. Have to go to see my ID doctor soon and I will be closer to my ID doctor. So that is another good thing for me it is only 20 minutes from my new place so that is great.

Jerry,

This move has been a long time coming, and this is one very happy camper, now that you have declared your independence.

Please don't look back, and keep moving in the right direction, and Brad, welcome to the forums.  This is all good......;)

Love Ya Jerry.

Yes me and Jerry are moving into a really nice place. I can't wait to start our new life together. I really do care about him a lot. We have so much in common. After a year we are going to look for us a house of our own. I hope and pray that God lets everything work out for us. Please keep us in your prayers... Also Jerry went today and got his blood work done, lets all pray that it all comes back good. I do thank God for sending Jerry into my life... I have something to look foward too now. Well gotta go get ready for band practice. I play the tuba and the baritone for the Kingsport Community Band. Well I hope everyone is doing well.

Just wish I had a magic wand and could zap all my stuff from one to the new place. The packing is what is the rough part and then the dreadful unpacking. UGHHHHHHHHHHHH. I guess it could be worse though since I only have to move my Kitchen stuff and living room and 1 bedroom. Jusr can't wait to get the truck loaded and get the new keys to the place and then were set. Then comes the house warming your all welcome if you can make it too Tennessee. Ok back too more packing and then off to help Brad with his packing. :o
