I thought I had replied to Mal69's post about "This Site" but it looks like I lost the post in the either, I also thought most of my unseen reply applied to everyone...
Firstly, thanks Mal for your kind words and to everyone who has said how helpful they have found the community.
I also wanted to check that you have all visited the web site I built to support this project, if you haven't please visit the site at hiv.partners the site has a lot of information and resources which, I hope, helps us all living our lives with HIV.
Secondly, I wanted to ask you all, how would you like to see the HIV Partners web site develop in the future?
Mel made a very valid point when he suggested some sort of get-to-getter there are time when it is just 'nice' to be with other people who are also living with HIV. Not with any particular agenda or endless chatting about the virus but just being with other positive folks who are not going to judge or condemn us for living with a simple virus.
I also noticed a few personal adds being posted. I thing this is great and very natural and something I am very willing to support and develop in the future. I think reading between the lines that the HealthUnlocked team might be less enthusiastic. Given that I would be very happy to bring that aspect under the HIV Partners web site.
Would you find it useful if I developed some bulletin boards on the HIV Partners web site? I could set up some regional boards for everyone so they can develop stronger bonds with other people living locally
with HIV .
Let me know your thoughts, you can post your suggestions here or if you would rather message me directly you can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, can I ask you to edit you profiles to add the country you are living in? This is important because there are different test and treatments available in different parts of the world. It helps to know where you are when we give advice to each other.
That is it for now.
Wishing you all the very best in the coming year.
With the kindest regards,
