7th HIVesary february 14
« on: February 13, 2014, 06:44:09 PM »
Well... its been seven years since I was diagnosed.
I have been very lucky to find a good support system in my family, friends and you, on this forum. Looking back at the seven years, I realize that it would have been more difficult if I did not have this space here to share with you, learn from you and vent from time to time.

There are many people on this forum who are instrumental directly or indirectly to getting me to this place today, where I have come to accept that I am beautiful inside and outside being the hiv positive me. I have learnt from your experiences and often, when times are rough I come here and read some posts that inspire me.

So here is a thank you to you all on this forum, for being a huge part of my support system.
Don't get me wrong.... I'd rather be hiv negative any day, but this forum has been there to push me forward during gloomy days.

To celebrate, I will probably go out and make a snow man after the storm announced for Montréal tomorrow!

By the way... Happy Valentine's day to all of you!
Take it a day at a time....and be positive about it too!
