Raúl Roldán, San Diego, Calif.; Diagnosed in 2006

I've seen this disease change a lot of people for the good actually. I'm one of them. If I could change my life, anybody can change their life!

To those who have just been diagnosed with HIV, I want to tell them that life has just begun. One does not have to get sick. This is a chronic, manageable illness and, if you take care of yourself, you can have a long and good life. In my case, I am happier today than I was before. Taking your meds is like tying your shoelaces. Life is what you make of it.
