Here I am at the beginning of 2012, facing so many ups and downs of life. "Teenage Hormone Syndrome" (from my girl Trisha) is one of them that's giving me a headache. One of the biggest news I received last year was I've been proposed to by a longtime good friend of mine in September, and we got married in November.
Now everyone can read a lot more about me as a young girl in TheBody.com's Women's Resource Center. I am sharing this story as a part of my journey struggling as an HIV-positive woman and mother, and even way before the disease came into my body.
It was the usual check-up for me and my daughter as we normally did every year, just to make sure we were healthy. We just had to wait two weeks for our results, so during that time I was just acting normally like nothing had happened, because it hadn't. I was 21 back then, and my daughter, Trisha, was 6.
