It is time!
      09/27/13 06:22 AM

I was diagnosed with HIV 4 years ago and then AIDS 3 years ago. I haven't gone to the doctor since, or taken any meds. I've been on a downward spiral of sorts. Really not caring, going through depression and self loathing. I think the main reason for this is a lack of communication, mainly my behalf, with the community that can support me and know what I'm talking about. That's about to change.

I recently had a scare and contracted scarlet fever. (yes the plague of the Oregon Trail is still alive and rampant!) I know it's not necessarily an OI, but let me tell you, Ms.Scarlet Fevah had her way with me and then some. It was just that kick in the immune system that brought me back to the realization that I'm still alive and here. I'm gonna put my big girl panties on and face life with a shot-gun and brass knuckles ( I just like brass knuckles. I know they don't mix well with shot guns)

So, tomorrow I have my first appointment with the Dr. about my AIDS in 3 years. Not sure what to expect. I've written down my list of questions and can only wait in anticipation for that fateful moment. Let's just be honest; I'm a little scared. I don't want to face my reality alone. That is why I'm here and typing.

I don't know how to end this. I've never been good at endings on my thoughts. This had been therapeutic to me and that's what counts.

Happy Life to all!
