My Letter to HIV: A Letter From Mathew Fox

April 7, 2012

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

Dear HIV,

First and foremost, I can't believe you affect my life in which you do. You turned my world upside down, and I just don't understand why me?

Was this a lesson that I needed to be taught? Is this pay back for something that I have done in the past? Why did you have to make me so sick? People live with it forever without going into the hospital and damn I have been in there twice. And I have only been diagnosed positive for 7 months. Damn it I want answers I want to know what I did so wrong to be infected by you!

You risk me losing the most important person in my life. You risked me losing Keon. Why?? Why can't I be any other gay man without you infecting my body!
