Hello everyone,

You gals are smokin' hot with all the messeges and feedback-- I love it!  I'm 39 and I've been poz since 95-- I was one of the lucky ones who got to test positive on her Birthday...my 28th Birthday-- talk about Saturn Return.  Anyway, I'll see you around the block.  Thanks for being here.

A short intro but I hope we will get to know you better. I see we are the same age though you have been poz a few years before me. I became poz in '97 and just started meds last year. What a bday present to get but I admire your upbeat outlook on life since being poz. I am sure you will be a welcomed addition to the ladies forum here.

Hey Queen,

I know it was short.  I'm not big on formulating a biography--deer in the headlights kinda thing.  You all can ask me anything though.

Welcome, BTL :)...again.

I'll start  ;D
Where do you live?  Are you on meds?  In a relationship? Have kids?
I can think of 20 questions but I'll give you a break.  ;)

Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important

The heaviest thing you can carry is a grudge..

One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

One thing you can't recycle is wasted time.

Hi Snow,

I currently live in Colorado.  Not on meds (fingers crossed, knock on wood)  no kids, unless you count my beloved dog.  He got Parvo three days after we got him from the humane society...figures I'd pick out a puppy that essentially had the dog world version of HIV... he came through like a champ though, and the clinic gave him back to us.  I vowed to get him a t-shirt that said, "I kicked Parvo's ass!" but never did.  He'd hate wearing the damn thing anyway.  I live with my partner, met him online--he's poz too

Hi Be-

Welcome to our women's family. :)

I was diagnosed in 1989 and went on meds in either '90 or '91.  Thank heavens the meds have improved so much. 

I'm sure you'll get to know us better as you read through our posts and the dating thread.  Hope to hear more from you.
