It’s day 69, and life is good. The weather here is excellent – the sun is in the sky, there is a bit of a breeze, and life is good. 

Although I had a long day yesterday, with work, counselling session, two meetings, and further work when I got home, I do still feel like I have turned a corner in coping with this disease.

At the weekend, I was chatting online to several friends and found out that even more of my friends are actually HIV-positive. This has started to help me know that “I am not alone”. And telling friends that I am positive seems also to be helping them know that they are not alone. Peer support is useful as far as I can see. Thank God for the internet and allowing us to chat anonymously to each other and then find out that we are positive.
