Two Year Anniversary
« on: September 14, 2006, 06:53:03 PM »

It's been quite awhile since I posted, but I do check in often (mostly to correspond with a dear friend I have come to know through this site.) Tomorrow marks 2 years since I was diagnosed, and looking back I am amazed at how much has changed yet so much has stayed the same. I'm very lucky that I have never been sick despite somre really scary initial numbers. I'm doing very well on meds, numbers are quite good and I feel terrific.

The purpose of my post is two-fold. First, to thank everyone on Aidsmeds who were there for me during those difficult first weeks and months. I was very lucky to find this site the very same day I was diagnosed (thanks, Google!) and found great information and lots of empathy. Secondly, for those of you who have just been diagnosed, a word of encouragement -- life does go on, and you still have a LOT of life left in you. Learn all you can from the wonderful lessons and people here, find yourself a great doctor and do everything possible to take control of things that you can control.

Thanks again to everyone for being here. Like I wrote, I don't post often anymore, but continue to be hovering around cyberspace and am with you always.

Good health to all!
