Main Forums > I Just Tested Poz

So here goes...

(1/3) > >>

Greetings! I  have watched and read posts to these forum for a few weeks now, having tested positive back in June. It has been a true live-saver to read about everyone else's tremendous spirit, vitality and determination - it has literally helped get me to this point where I realize how important it is to reach out to everyone and take this step. I hope to be able to meet some of you and learn about your trek through this challenge, and hopefully find a way down the road to do the same for others.

You know, it sounds ridiculous now looking back, but stuff like this "doesn't happen" to guys like me. Man, life has a funny way of changing your opinion quickly. Here I am, and I'm ready to beat this thing.

Look forward to meeting all of you.


Greetings Zach. First I'll say Sorry you tested poz. As far as the spirit, vitality and determination in this site - Glad you sense all that here! It's for real! In addition, this site is educational and full of humor. Glad you found us. We're here for you every step of the way. The forums are "all that, and a bag of chips"

Alex, the holistic guy

PS - One of the most important pages to read in case you haven't yet is located here


Sorry to hear about your diagnosis.  Like you, I was blown out of the water when I was told of my status.

Take deep breaths.  Things will get better.  I you continue to learn that you can thrive in the face of HIV.



Hi Zach, welcome to the forums.

If you haven't already, please read through the Welcome thread at the top of this page or the Living forum page. You'll find links to other sections of this website there.

I'm glad you decided to take the plunge and reach out. Looking forward to hearing more from you...

Hi Zach,

and welcome to the gang! Of course the reason why you are joining us sucks ;) but at least you've joined early, and you will be able to avoid some of the mistakes I made during the 4 years it took me to find this place.
I've changed opinions on many issues during this time, and I am sure I will change a few more.

Keep up the fighting spirit and humour!
