I am new to Poz and just wanted to let people know and possibly get some input as to what happens on this site. I have been HIV+ for 17 years now and would like to meet people who go through the same things that I do. I look forward to hearing from some of you.......

Hi Tina,

Welcome! I moved your thread into this Forum because I thought it would get more attention here. Feel free to bring up anything you are concerned about and to ask questions. As you participate and let people get to know you I think you'll find this is a good place for company as well as to get useful information.

We're glad you have found your way here.

Tina, welcome to the forums. 

I'm assuming you're a female.  Why don't you join us ladies in the "positive women" part of the forum?  In particular, the ladies' thread there.  We're a good bunch and we talk about our daily lives, struggles, etc. and support each other.  We'd love to have you.

Welcome, Tina.  I just want to second what Andy and Betty both said.  You have found yourself among some of the finest people in the world.   I look forward to hearing more from you.

Welcome, Tina!
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.
