What a Year!
« on: April 22, 2007, 08:54:56 PM »
To all the forum members:

It has been about year since I first posted here. I started out in the Am I Infected waiting for hubbys results and then mine. Everyone here has been a godsend. You all have helped me in so many ways. Your words of encouragement, compassion, and hope helped me through the most diffcult year of my life. I have learned so much from each and everyone of you. I really hate to think of where I would be at today if I hadn't found this place. Because of you all I have been able to be a better wife in helping hubby through this first year.

I truly love each and everyone of you. You all have a special place in my heart and always will. If I could I would hug and kiss each and everyone of you!

Much Love :-*

You have been there for me. Sometimes some words mean the world.
I am glad you both found the way to this place.

Yes, I wonder where I would have been without it.... take a guess...

Happy Anniversary Teresa!

Has it only been one year? It seems like you've been around forever - and I mean that in a nice way. You've given back so much to these forums and I'm glad you found us.

Anniversary hugs,
