I'm a cancer survivor (diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma in late 2006 but now in remissions). Will be 49 years young in March '12, single and HIV positive. In some respects I feel as though my life has just begun, despite my many years and numerous mistakes. Don't have any pets at the moment but if I were to get another, would probably be a dog. I'm partial to cocker spaniels (my best companion of all time was a black spaniel and contrary to what a lot of people say about them she was pretty intelligent--and spoiled).
