Today I was just checking my email and I noticed that there are alot of new people on this site. I am happy that they found the site for support. I have had this virus for 14 years and I just want them to know that they are not alone. When I was first diagnosed many years ago the ignorance was extreme.

I think that this is the biggest part of dealing with the illiness. It is important just having someone to talk to about your fears and hopes. You need to know that even though you have the virus your life isn't over. All of us are here to listen if you need to talk, vent or even cry. It's o.k. to be scared, angry, afraid and not know what to do- they are a part of coming to terms with this. Just know that your not alone.
