I am not a very religious person, but want to tell you do not give up on GOD because of your illness. GOD loves all people and things, including GAYS. My partner of 21 yrs. is HIV+. He does not even take his meds, and is living a happy normal life. And I hope and pray that you will have a happy normal life. I am sure that many Gays on this site will talk with you at any time if you so desire. Keep your chin up and try smiling. I wish you a Merry Christmas/Happy Holiday and may all your wishes come true.

David, You have everything to look forward to, most of all, life, love and even not just the hope of, but a cure for AIDS in your lifetime! Please take the time to Google: "The Berlin Patent" There's hope in sight, so stay strong, try to eliminate any stress as much as possible, by either Prayer and/or mediation. Center yourself in the belief that God does love you, more then you or I will ever know until we meet Him/Her (personally i do not believe God has a 'gender', why would "he"?) but that's just me. here's a quick link for your search. http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2011/05/16/apparent-immunity-gene-cures-bay-area-man-of-aids/ Please understand that AIDS does have it's own syndromes, including depression, fatigue, loss of interests in just about everything. This little monster feeds on our fear and if we give in, with out hope, we will lose. I was a Nurse, I have had AIDS since 1982, and didn't stop working until 1990, when my T-cells fell below 150 and I began to have opportunistic infections, so I had to stop working with people who were sick, ill or dying, because at that point, their sickness posed a threat to my own health. I know the "Stigma" of AIDS all too well, that is another factor of this disease that in it's own way can kill us if we let it. This is your body, your life, and you must find the strength to continue to live, for the day that a cure is found, trials for a vaccine for humans are underway. Sadly, the day for a cure may be post phoned because of the funding needed for research may be cut. That's why we must write to our representatives to NOT cut AIDS funding. There are POZ dating sites (Pozmatch) and in your area Google for support groups in your area, you are not alone there's even a support group here: HIV/AIDS Activist Network. one of the best ways to help yourself is by helping others, find a ASO (AIDS service Organization) to help others because, it will take your mind off of yourself and the rewards that you get are so many blessings, because you, are helping others, either on line or off line. Don't let the haters get you down, because they will always be there. The reason I post videos here because music, like prayer, can lift you from the depths of darkness and despair and give you respite from your sadness to where you are inspired, to hang in there for just one more day. And living with AIDS and being Gay is no joke, but you may find it easier to live one day at a time, for you can do anything by thinking too much about the past, (Thinking too much about the past, you waste the time you have today, and worrying about the future, is pointless, because again, today's worry's should be all you need to be concerned about, please try this. Just one day at a time. I am not a saint, a wise man, a doctor of theology, or any thing remarkable. I am human and I try to offend no one (Which these days would be a miracle, because everyone's offended by almost anything someone else does> I just feel your pain and am trying with all my heart to reach out to you, to help, and even in that I may fail. I remember reading somewhere, "That is isn't how many times a man falls that defines him, but how many times he can get up!) Don't give up!

Pax!
