I really can't believe it's been 20 months
« on: October 29, 2010, 09:49:53 AM »
It's hard to believe that my last post was in February…..2009.  I really enjoyed the forums and had met some really nice people. For almost 3 years they had provided me with valuable info and support.   But for a variety of reasons I lost interest and just dropped out.  Last night I was bored and thought, hmmm wonder what's been going on over at POZ.COM so I checked it out.  Enjoyed reading posts, one thing is for sure some things never change, as long as people are becoming infected there will be questions regarding exposure, when first learning of being poz there will be the doom and gloom posts and of course there will always be posts in Off Topic Forum that are sure to make one laugh, cry or scream.  I was also surprised by the changes.  Not sure what brought one particular change about, but glad to see one of my favorite people has returned.  I am not one to name drop so I'll just keep that my little secret,  plus if people found out how much I appreciate that person's posts, my reputation might not be so pristine.  I am excited to reconnect with the forums and this wonderful community.  I look forward to it regaining its status on my journey. ............now i have to figure out how to put up a new picture, not very computer savvy.

Welcome Back, Wood.  Nice to see you here!!
Hope all has been well!

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.

Welcome back, Woods! Nice to hear from you again.

The way avatars are uploaded has changed a bit since you were last here and there is a thread in Off Topic that explains how to do it. You can find it here. If you need additional help, shoot me a PM and I'll try to sort you out. :)
