Interesting question, but irrelevant for me, because I can't remember life without HIV and while I hate my status, I would have missed so much in my world.  Yes, I buried countless friends, but the fact was I had that many friends to bury.  They all hold a place in my heart and I couldn't trade those memories for anything.

I would also think that HIV has helped to make me the man I am today and I like who I see in the mirror.

Dreaming is fine, as long as you don't become blind to reality.  I suppose what it really comes down to for me is that since I can't remember life without it, I can't imagine what my life might be like now.

I've learned to treasure what I have, because the only person any of this really matters to is me and I'm very content.

My biggest fear today is that I will step off a curb and get hit by a bus,
and I won't get my name on that fucking quilt.

ROFL...OMG Ademas...that was too freakin funny.

Hmm, what would I give to be negative again?  That's a pretty tough call, even though I've only been poz three yrs it's just part of me now, I don't really remember what it was like to be neg.  I don't like being poz at all, however, like Dingo said he likes who he is more now.  I think that I'm the same way.  HIV has shown me just how strong a person I am and made me get up off my ass and do something with my life rather than just talk about it.  I just hope that one day it will finally be over, so future generations to come don't have to go through all the heartaches and pain that can come with it.  Herman also made a good point...he wouldn't trade the life experiences...neither would I.  There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the faces of people change when you talk about it so openly, like the light comes on in their head...
