Greetings,
Earlier this year, I became very ill and was hospitalized. Thinking that my office mates & boss would come by and check on me. Nobody showed up except for my partner and family. That time I didn't realize that rumors were spreading around corporate that "the queer has AIDS!" When I finally recovered and went back to work (in a law office) it was something I could never have imagined. I was treated like I was invisible. As a result of the rumor, I lost some of my clients and colleagues. They were upset that I didn't share my HIV status with them.
You see, I consider my private life, private. Maybe I should have and maybe not. I've seen and dealt with this sort of hatred when working for a large firm in ATL. It wasn't pleasant. I consider myself a compassionate, out-going and kind person. And now, I feel alone. I thought that it didn't make any difference. I was wrong!
Whether or not they like me, I am a professional. I'm there to do my
job.
So hold your head up high and don't worry yourself. Everything will be okay!!
