Regarding ChrisM
« on: June 18, 2006, 09:44:52 PM »
Many of you will remember ChrisM from the old forums. Like me, he's an epileptic poz bod and a smashing queen to boot. I was chatting with him today. He's been very ill over the last few weeks (not HIV related) and I promised him I'd post a get well thread in Living With for him.

Sadly, today is Chris' AIDS birthday. He was diagnosed 2 years ago. To make it worse, it just happened to fall on Father's Day (Chris has two daughters) so he's feeling a bit down. So without further ado:

Hey Chris,

I'm sorry to hear you've been having a hard time of it again. Hang in there, ok?

Hope you're feeling better again very soon.

Good to hear from you, Chris.

While you're working through stuff with your therapist I recommend keeping mind that being gentle with yourself is the way to go.

Make sure today includes something you really like whatever that maybe.
