How Do You Thank Your Family And Friends For Their Support?

How Do You Thank Your Family And Friends For Their Support?

posted November 22
A myHIVteam Member

I have absolutely zero support from my family. Their actions have taught me that there is no hate quite like Christian love. I have tons of support from my friends. I'm frequently buying a gift for people for no occasion other than I thought of that person when I saw it. I make sure that we either see each other or call each other every day.

Over 30 years, my family barely supported me regarding my HIV. Even ignored my most difficult medical challenges. I DID warmly thank the SOLE relation to always ask how I am, listen to my reply, and respect my same sex partner. She’s GOLDEN.

Find support where you can … If anyone fundamentally disrespects you, walk away!

Well I have a great ID doctor, attending groups helped, I'm an only child, told my son's it was hard at 1st.
My Youngest never turned his back on me.
Being I was close to full blown aids I learned to fight and never give up .
I kept my weight up so I wouldn't look sick. (now needs to lose 20 pds)πŸ˜‚.
It helped me to go to organizations and talk to others.. Not only was was I helping them, I was helping my self..
Put Your Creator 1st everything else will fall into place.
DON'T GIVE UP πŸ‘πŸ½
