Y dont you make them free its just to show your support! It takes ages to get your points up when your new!

03-17-2008, 03:48 PM
Er, that's the point! (Get it? :laugh1blue: )...you're supposed to work for your points! Not get stuff for 'free'!

Thanks Rue but i wasnt after a hand out i was just making a point that thay cost to much in points and if i wanted to have all the ribbons to show my support it would take me 10years, ive sent your points back thanks anyway.

no one gives "handouts", we give gifts, probably the most fun thing to do with points

Thank you again William! I just got mine. I really appreciate it. The recognition of this and support means a lot to me, especially as someone living with this for 5 years as of today, march 18th. Yes, I said it on a public message board. Im not afraid, nor ashamed, and I will survive this to live a fairly normal lifespan. This will not beat me, its just that simple. I am stronger than it, it will not win. I know many who have survived 25-30 years now, and some without the aid of any antiretroviral drugs, by their own choice. They arent going anywhere either. 10's of millions of others in the United Stated, and hundreds of millions of others around the globe live with this also, every day, for the rest of their time here. It affects EVERYONE, weather they know it or not. Most people know someone who is infected, and many dont even know it. Were almost there though. We have gotten fairly close. There will be a cure. As I believe there will be for Cancer too.

I know its tough to talk about publicly, but its very very real, and does affect everyone. In fact, I would bet my life, that I am not the only one here, or on any board I post on, or any group of people larger than 50. The numbers we see/ hear, are mostly just the reported infections. The actual numbers as much much higher, even in the U.S. Most likely twice what is actually reported, and/or estimated to be around 15 million Americans at this time. New infection rates are going through the roof again. Only this time its more EVERYONE, and not just specific groups anymore, and its afflicting much much younger people now. Teens / early 20s are most new cases anymore. Pretty scary.

Anyway, Thank you again! Bravo! :19:

P.S. I hope you had a great birthday weekend!
