If the OP likes I can move this thread out of the women’s forum and into living with HIV where I am sure many people would love to say hello . Just let me know what you want me to do. Only women and mods are allowed to post in this forum.

Welcome Jazzabella!  So sorry I did not catch your post sooner.  I think a lot of women don't come on the site on a regular basis, myself included.  It's definitely not because no one cares.

Hi Ksyu, welcome to the forums. So glad to hear about your completing the Harvoni. It seems I hear from everyone who takes it, the Hep C is cured. Isn't that wonderful?

Glad to hear you're taking meds here.  I'm so glad you were able to get treated.  Hope to hear more from you!!  And again, welcome!

Hi Jessica,
I'm sorry it took me so long to respond.  You may want to start your own introduction thread.  That way all the ladies know there is someone new to the site. 

I've been diagnosed for over 1/2 my life, for 27 years.  Been through a lot both back in the earlier days of HIV, and more recently from many issues. 

Why don't you tell us about yourself, as much as you'd like to share, and we'll start another conversation?  Look forward to it.

Hi Jessica and welcome to the site. I found out I was hiv+ two years ago this month. it has been a roller coaster ride with many ups and down. but today I can truly say all is well with me.. life is good and hiv doesn't define me anymore. I look forward to hearing more about you. Hugs !

Hello Jessica!
I was just diagnosed in January. These ladies have been great support and knowledgeable if you run into any issues. They have been very kind and mindful with me. So please feel free to share!

Hello ladies. Sorry so late. I don't get on the site like I use to. I've been + for 10. Me and my husband both. I came to this group and the ladies were so helpful. I still see most of the same ladies they just don't post often. But anywho. Welcome to group and I pray everything is well with everyone.
