Hi, don't excuse for your english, there are many of us who are not native speakers, don't worry :)

It is always hard to say welcome to the forums, but well.. once you are here it is the first step towards educate yourself on how to better handle the diagnosis.

It is very important that you understand this... YES, you will see your son grow up and marry and all that. People living with Hiv live longer lives nowadays, there are several of our members who have been living with Hiv for over 20 years. You can expect the same, it will take some actions from your side to do it, but it is possible. You should not change your dreams... all the things you wanted to do in life can still be achieved.

It is very important for you to find a Dr and get your labs done, perhaps you can also tell us where you are placed, i have some Poz friends in Asia, perhaps there are more members of the forums near you.

Keep the mood up, things will be ok.

Hello Fortune,

don't give up your dreams, you can make them become reality. Your new condition may put some road blocks but never give up hope.

Newly diagnosed people often feel things in their body that they never paid attention to before. If you experience pain then check with your doctor. You will learn a lot on here, and we'll be here to answer any question you have. Let us know what is your first set of numbers when you get them, but be patient, it is often that people must get 3 or 4 tests before knowing how your body reacts to the infection.
