on picking up the pieces
      #177802 - 03/01/06 05:14 PM

So here I am 20 years old and dying to live but living to die but then again aren't we all?? I decided to take the time to share my story with you all on hiv. I was seeing this guy, everything about him was great and before you know it we were falling in love. I was estatic for everything about him was so beautiful, or at least I thought, that was until I discovered he was HIV positive. He had known from the very first day we started seeing each other but was in denial about the whole thing. By then we had already had unprotected sex a few times, and I was devasted, because I felt that he should have told me. I cried and cried and then logic stepped in. Not once was I angry or even vengeful. I took my new love, went down to a health clinic where he got retested ( he was really in denial). I know many of you may probably be like "your still with him! But you see, I'd rather spend the rest of my life loving someone who fucked up, and admitted it. Than walking away and wishing I had continued to love them. We all make mistakes, and though sometimes I am still hurt and lost and confused I know that we have each other, and that is enough to get me through each day. I have not been tested yet, not because I'm in denial, but because I whatever my faith is I have already chosen my path. HIV doesn't make or break us people, even if we don't live forever, lets strive to make our lives worth every minute, second, and hour. Lets rise above that stigma. Its not how long you live, but how well. LOVE YOU ALL!!! STAY STRONG!!

The heart may freeze or it can burn
The pain will ease if I can learn
There is no future, there is no past
I live this moment as my last
There's only us, there's only this
Forget regret, or life is yours to miss
No other road, no other way
No day but today

I can't control
My destiny
I trust my soul
My only goal is just to be
There's only now
There's only here
Give in to love
Or live in fear
No other path
No other way

Hold on to him. Hes trying the best he can dealing with this.. Its a hard road, but its so worth the bumps and beauty along the way..

DAPRINCEZZ, it's people like you, Eric and so many others on this site who are just wonderful people. I see so much sadness in the world at times, then someone like you comes along and brightens the day. Whishing you all the best.

In the end only kindness matters - Jewel
