Thank YOU

I have  made a lot of life changes lately and my emotions have been all over the place.  There is not a day that goes by that I don't have a good cry and then keep it moving, except weekends, can't cry in front of the kids.

I recently just started posting here again and today I decided to read thru my old posts.  I am on page 5 and I have to say, you are an amazing group of people. In the last hour, I have laughed, cried and felt support through what others have taken the time to write.

 I have kept my HIV status hidden and on the back burner for so long, it is interesting and eye opening for me to go back and see what my struggles have been and where I am with them now and how complete strangers helped me with them. I have learned a lot about myself and this disease through this site and its members and I can't put into words how much I truly appreciate your insight and reading about your personal experiences.

Hey Snow; 

Thank you for the post -- I have been off line for a while, although lurk sporadically when I have a few minutes.  The people on this site have helped me through my journey too.

Hi Snow, good to see you here getting (and by extension giving) support.  You are dealing with your own HIV disease and also trying to be brave and always there for your kids, which you are.  Keep on truckin' girl.

Good to see you here.  When I read old messages here or on Facebook, it usually causes me to cringe.  "I said that?  Why?"  Lol.  Sometimes, it is like reading something someone else wrote.  I guess that means we continually grow and move forward, even when it seems not enough time has passed for that. 

Keep in touch more
