On Sunday January 15th at 9pm EST, Greg Halpen shared his story on POZIAM RADIO. Greg is a self-mastery coach and healer.

It was a late summer day in August of 1997 when Greg Halpen went to his follow up HIV test appointment. It was result time. He had met someone new, and thought he would FINALLY get tested. But he wasn't ready for what was in store for him. The news? He tested positive for HIV. That day felt like the last day of the rest of his life.

You see, the virus didn't make him sick or devour his immune system. It was his emotional reaction that devoured his soul for the next 12 years. Allowing the idea of being HIV positive to consume his life, his dreams ... he didn't realize it, but he lived everyday as though he was going to die.

Then he awakened. After some pretty intense soul searching, he began to realize that August day in 1997 was the FIRST day of the rest of his life. Even though he would like to see a cure in his lifetime and end taking the medication, he views being HIV positive as a gift.

The Positive Pitch

I describe myself as a "positive person with purpose." My goal is to help people living with HIV/AIDS discover similarities in each other ... and form friendships. I want to ease the shock of a diagnosis and remind people that our dreams are not infected. I am also an HIV/AIDS cyber-activist, radio show host, blogger and social network guru.
