Esmarelda,

Why is lack of disclosure akin to hiding due to fear?

Question: Should a medical condition define the person that I am?

I do not think so. I have been HIV+ for 5 years now, it has not defined me nor will it. I am pround to be me. Bob. Yep me.

Whether people know my HIV status or not does not and will not prevent me being active or doing good in any area of public ignorance.

I sense anger in your writing. Please do not be. Anger does nothing but weaken an individual and distract one from the positive things that need to be done.

Let us be strong as a community for the people that we are, not for our infection. Let us be part of the human struggle against this virus. Then when we have won this battle let us turn our drive to other issues.

Just as people do not like "Bible Thumpers" they do not like "Condition thumpers" either.

We are human first and foremost and must act in that serenity.

Bob
