You are most welcome to use this website and read POZ magazine. All we ask is that you restrict your posting to the forum where I moved your thread to (Someone I Care About Has HIV) and the Living With HIV and Off Topic forums.

The Long Term Survivor forum is only for people who are hiv positive themselves and have been for many years.

We have plenty of members here who have friends or loved ones who are hiv positive, so you're not alone. Please do keep posting!

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

It's great that you made the step to come here to inform yourself about HIV after you found out about your cousin, so no worries, you're welcome to post, ask questions, and maybe one day you will invite them to this site too!

Please dont leave I am not positive and I have found this site one of the best support systems yet. My hubby is postitive and even though you may not be going through the same thing I am it is still hard and you will need support also. So please just stick with it and know that there are people here that care about you not your status and I know that everyone will embrass you like they have me.
