A Story of Failure
      12/01/05 07:29 PM

W.A.D. snippet from MSNBC

We are approaching the twenty fifth year of the AIDS epidemic in the U.S. The drugs brought a 70 per cent decline in the death rate in this country from their discovery in the early 1990s to the mid-1990s. But they are not a cure and eventually they stop working. In this country, 14,000 people a year still die from AIDS and that number has not changed since 1998. Health officials estimate that 40,000 Americans still get infected every year.


As I read this piece this morning feeling pretty good, I was saddened. Here I am just barely into being able to cope, and here is this disparaging point that the drugs quit working. What does that comment mean! I am pissed off, mad at the world! I want to live and here “they” tell me. “Your screwed”. What about the 14,000? Will that be me? Or are these people those who cannot or will not take care of their condition! Blast it! Ok, Breath Eric….. I need more therapy.. from you ..

will I loose dignity,
will someone care,
will I wake tomorrow
from this nightmare”.

God Bless us all…

Love

Eric
