Response to Wannabe Lawyet

Nov 27, 2003

Nelson, This is more of a comment about a question that was posed to you from a recently diagnosed person asking about going to law school. Your answer was right on the money. There is nothing to stop someone from fulfilling their dreams. I've been poz for almost 9 years and have had no problems in my professional life. I now have contacts with a number of law schols around the country and know that there is a large number of schools that have programs to help people with HIV/AIDS as part of the legal education experience. My suggestion to the newly diagnosed person is not to focus strictly on the negative (suing people who don't help us), but focus mainly on the positive (helping other people who are in a similiar situation that you are in). I found that this is so much more rewarding. Nelson, thanks for your hard work and keep up the good work! D

Response from Mr. Vergel

Thanks so much! I agree. An HIV diagnosis can be used to jump start your life to make a meaningful contribution in the world, or it can be used to destroy you with self pitty, shame and anger!
