Hello !!!   :D and thanks !!  :)

Let me express some frustration here, I've been detected since Feb'2001, and taking meds for free (lucky me), but I've always got wishes to help more people at least with supporting words, or doing some jobs related my profession (computing enginner), so two years ago, I've decided to email several aids organizations here (mostly No Gobertment Organization), but it was really frustrated, most of them are realy close circles, where just few people lead them, and try to ban anyone from outside, because they wouyld loose money benefits, that people travel several times a year, attend conferences, spend money hiring consultors, but (as example) didnt want to buy ONE computer to teach internet to AIDS patients, they say I could use 2hours a week, one of their PCs at office to teach that class, I offered to tech it for free, to let aids people to keep informed and contacted one each other. And I have similar examples around ....

I was expecting to contact a real support group formed by REAL people, not for money-interested people, and some of those people are....

Hope you were luckier than me ....
See you

You could start a support group!  Granted it will take some time and effort on your end. 


"But I've always got wishes to help more people at least with supporting words, or doing some jobs related my profession "

Join the club. My whole goal is to provide the support and teachings that people need today in this society. I am working on a group called The Eldon Foundation and we will address as many issues as we can to help out.

I just need to get the funding in place for all that needs to be done. You are right on target, people need to support each other regardless of the organization and how it is structured. You are another who thinks like other do.

Our voices needs to be heard.
