Hi Giannis and welcome, I spent three weeks holiday on Thassos a few years ago and I envy you living in such a beautiful part of the world.

Welcome, Giannis.  You might introduce yourself in the living with HIV section so that more people discover you as well as posting in the two or three threads going in which people give a brief history of themselves or, in the other thread, at least tell us where they live.  Best, Win

Kalimera, Giannis!

Welcome to the site. I am another  lover of Greek culture in general.  In fact, for the past ten years I have been to Mykonos and some other islands several times!

Hey Giannis,

I wish to extend to you a warm WELCOME here at the forums. Here you will find the encouragement, communication, understanding, support, some cries, some laughter, and many of your questions relating to HIV/AIDS answered.


We have a great group of Real People who will listen as well as answer you. We are here to encourage one another and to learn from each other.
Implementing a Positive Mental Attitude will also assit you on your journey in this life as well as a positive impact on your immune system.

Talking to other people helps us see that we are not the only ones with problems. Feel free to come and vent with whatever is on your mind from time-to-time as it is highly therapeutic.

In the interim, you may want to start taking a multi-vitamin, Omega 3 and eat a diet high in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, and low-fat dairy and avoid processed foods, saturated and trans fats. This will also help you maintain a healthy weight.

Exercise at least three times per week for a minimum of 30 minutes.

Make the BEST of each and every Day!

Long,
If you ever go to Mykonos, that's it you'll be trapped, since it is almost impossible to go there just once.  It is such a beautiful, international   island! During the Summer months in Europe the whole gay community meets in there at Elia Beach...
