Thanks for being here!

I want to express my deep respect, admiration and thanks to all who created, maintain and contribute to this site. Brilliant!

A close family member recently disclosed his Poz status to me which was a considerable honor as the first person to be told in a large family.

Finding this site to educate myself, hear people's experiences and the fantastic affirmative sharing that I read is pure gold. And great politics from what I've seen!

Despite the concern, and at times fear, for the loved one that the diagnosis brings it also creates a new opportunity for a closer, rich and deeply meaningful relationship. This too is very special.

Sincere thanks to all, wish I had stuff to offer as I feel I am very much a 'taker' site wise at present, but who knows...maybe some time I can make a contribution too!
