This is what I have, not who I am
      05/15/12 12:43 PM

I realized today I am doing fine. I take my meds. My labs are "great" as my doctor told me. I am not HIV, I have HIV. I have to live with HIV. And live I must. I had stopped going out doing much of anything but staying at home. And why? I have no real reason other than I have HIV. But today after teaching a class I suddenly realized there is no reason for me not live. Get out, have fun. I have HIV I am not HIV. No one gets infected if I go out. No more isolation and thinking about what I have lost, because I haven't lost anything except what I gave away, and I did that not HIV. I am taking back my life.
