Welcome


Welcome to the POZ/AIDSmeds Community Forums, a round-the-clock discussion area for people with HIV/AIDS, their friends/family/caregivers, and others concerned about HIV/AIDS.  Click on the links below to browse our various forums; scroll down for a glance at the most recent posts; or join in the conversation yourself by registering on the left side of this page.

Privacy Warning:  Please realize that these forums are open to all, and are fully searchable via Google and other search engines. If you are HIV positive and disclose this in our forums, then it is almost the same thing as telling the whole world (or at least the World Wide Web). If this concerns you, then do not use a username or avatar that are self-identifying in any way. We do not allow the deletion of anything you post in these forums, so think before you post.

  • We ask all forums members to provide references for health/medical/scientific information they provide, when it is not a personal experience being discussed. Please provide hyperlinks with full URLs or full citations of published works not available via the Internet. Additionally, all forums members must post information which are true and correct to their knowledge.

got my results
« on: January 24, 2015, 11:50:11 PM »
So i jus got my reults today and found out im positive...i have this knot in my stomach and can't sleep. I can't tell my friends or family, i really want to tell my dad because we have become close over the years but he is very old fashioned. I just want to talk to someone and tell me its ok that my life isn't over. Because i can't help but feel like it is. I just wish i knew how to tell my family... and if anyone has any info about hiv that think would help that would be great...thanks

Welcome.

The lessons Jeff pointed you toward are invaluable, read them and trust them. So much of the information you'll find on the internet is outdated and inaccurate, POZ prides itself on keeping up to date and only providing the best science.

I think you've made a good decision not to disclose. I know that desire, the need to share a little bit of the burden. Remember, once you disclose, you no longer control that information. My anecdotal experience; everyone you tell, will tell two, and so on. Do the math.

Take the time to come to terms with your virus. There is no rush to do anything other than take care of yourself first.

You can talk to us, anytime you need, there is a lot of love and support in here. We are all positive, every one of us. We've been through what you're facing. Many of the members here are Long Term Survivors. They are living proof that this virus can be beaten. Don't give up.

It's ok, your life isn't over.  :)   
An honest tune with a lingering lead has taken me this far
