i agree, it is confusing at first. hit reply to add to a topic. you already figured out how to post a new topic. unfortunately i don't there is a chat. would just have to IM using outside service i guess. if you find out let me know.

     cool if it is.. today is sat. morning my tummy hurts right now >:( . i want tacos!

its now dec. and oct5 was the day i got my results. 2months. it feels like time goes by slowly. but at the same time i cant belive it*me?!  have i been chosen? to do what?  well like IMAN says in her champain. she wants to put a face to whts going on in Africa. i in some way feel i want to put a face to HIV here where i live and maybe else where. so one day more poeple will help fight this desease. beacuse they knw/knew of some one who has IT.     
   yesterday after noon i went back to my job where i was working before i got sick tomy stomach inpart due to the status.  one of those apportunistic deseases. i was advice to not work for a few month. im frustratedbeing at home. but  iknw if for my best interest.  i can only take so much tv.and being in one house with MOM! lol
i needed to goback and tell some of my ex-co-workers about the wonderfull blessing GOD had done for me couple of months ago. when it seemed i was going to accompany my  DAD in heaven. if let me stay i feel i owe him ,my self , my loved ones something. and if i have this i want to make a diff. not go by unoticed. and no its not a thing that happens to promescuouse , party animal,kids like me.  now my co-workers think ive turned jahova or something . but i dont care wht any one thinks like i use to. paranoid me*  i care wht GOD thinks and thats it.
but i doo fee more of  us need to come out and talk , teach, voice, yell, that we have it and are ok.
OK- no one said it would be easy, no one said it would be this hard.

lets take it back to the begening.

well Rockit, i found out a month before i was laid off from my job. talk about freaked out, but as my best friend put it "Maybe someone up above felt that you needed time to deal with it. It will all work out". And it did. I went on temp disability per my doc to get through emotionally and now that i look back, it was nice to have a few months off to deal with it.

best of luck. of course this forum you can use to ask any questions you want. everyone is very helpful.

Hi Rockit and welcome to the forum.

I meant to move this post into the Living forum the other day (so you'll get more responses) but I see I forgot to. Sorry! I'll move it now...

Welcome Rockit.  We arent Hiding per se.  Some people like to keep things PRIVATE which is different from SECRET.

Everyone , amost everyone, here respects the others privacy and we disclose what we want WHEN we want. 

Good luck figuring out the site.  Try using the spell checker some, it will help clean up your posts a little and may generate you some responses.

Hi Rockit,

Welcome to the forum. Like someone else said some of us like to keep things more private than others. I personally don't care who knows my status.  I LIVE with it, THEY don't. Thanks for the PM, send me one anytime. Glad you found us.

There are inherent differences between social networking (myspace) and a message board.

If folks here really want to form a chat room only for members of this message board I would suggest setting one up on IRC as it is cross platform.

Hello Rockit,

I wish to extend to you a WARM WELCOME here at the AM 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.

With the consideration of implementing a Positive Mental Attitude, it will also assist you on your journey in this life as well as having a Positive Impact on your immune system.

In fact, through your Positive Mental Attitude, it will help you push forward through all of the obstacles on your path that you are now walking on.

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.

Often the act of writing and the ability to see your feelings leads to therapeutic insights and solutions. .

In the interim, you may want to start taking a multi-vitamin, Omega 3 and you may want to keep an eye on your diet.

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

Make the BEST of each and every Day!
