Quote: ISoon after I found out I took some classes on HIV and have gone out teaching others about the disease,HIV prevention and ways to care for yourself.I tried to put as positive a spin on my life since as I could.I would love to get a job working at a nursing home/rehab here that only takes residents with HIV/AIDS. Ive always felt that now I have it I need to help prevent others from getting.The part that surprises most people is that I am an older,white,professional woman.I don't fit the "profile" of someone with AIDS.It helps me stress my point that you can't tell by how someone looks.
Terry, you are so inspirational, know you are loved by many of us here, and you always know just what to say to pick us up, I am so grateful that you are in my life.. D
