Looking for a friend in London

Hi guys, hope you all having a great day. I have been diagnosed over 2 years ago. Not many people know about my status and going to keep it that way. Maybe one day I will change my mind, just very difficult because of the stigma around. I have to say , I became much stronger person After my diagnosis and I value things more then before. I never used to take things for granted.. But it is different. You never believe this can happen to you !!

I would like to make a friends in London who are in same position. Maybe we can meet up for coffee and have a chat or so. I am 34 years old.

Keep smiling and keep positive guys... I always say, it could be worse... X

Hi Andilek,

Sounds very similar to my past; only a few very good friends knows all about me. And I faced to often stigma whether on work or in private. Years I kept it as my secret, traveled miles and miles to visit doctor far away, to make sure nobody will know me.

Sounds you founded a good way and strategy.

I am new to London, maybe there are some more guys to meet up here;-)

Cheers

why don't we organise a meeting where we can meet and introduce ourselves and maybe go out for drinks after?
