Good luck with your results, someone said to me in here that they wish they sprinkle some magic fairy dust to make it good,

I want to pass on that wish to you *sprinkle *sprinkle

try to keep yourself busy and don't plan anything major for a couple of days after the result - its a lot to take in and you need some space to digest it.

try not to tell anyone its 12pm friday etc as you don't need your phone screaming at you when you have just been told yourself

GOOD LUCK

*sprinkle *sprinkle *sprinkle

the worst event happened in 2001 when it got so bad i didn't know who to talk to or where to turn (or trust as i later discovered) especially with my family on the other side of the world. i spoke to my employer about it as i was clearly losing weight from stress and not me,

she promptly entered the restaurant i was running and declared in front of 50 invited guests that i was leaving xyz as i had sadly contracted Aids and wanted to return home

I went into my shell, DENIAL extremo... complicating my anxiety further as i truly recognise denial as major part of HD..

Im so very glad i found you all , this group is amazing and i would love to help in way ...i failed the test but i reckon i passed the theory bit..

xxxxxxxxx
May be a little late, but i will be trying to help where i can , i forgot a promise i made
