Hi everyone! I just...

Hi everyone! I just happened to stumble upon this little corner of the internet while I was desperately looking for support, connections, even friendships with someone who I can relate with. I was born with HIV in 1983. I am now healthy and I am very quickly approaching my 34 birthday. I will be 3 years older than my mom was when she passed away in 1991. I know she will be very proud of the woman I have become. Nobody knows about my health status except close family members. Life is very lonely living a double life. So I am excited to make connections with other people where I can be myself and talk openly and freely about my status.
