I had my first test back, and it was HIV positive. the doctor now is looking to see how bad i have it (CD4). i will also go back to thailand where i assume i got HIV and will set up an appointment with a good hospital there to review.
my question - how do i begin living with this disease? what forums are there? i want to chat with real people and not statistics provided by Doctors. i know there is still a stigma on HIV. tks.
