My Letter to HIV: A Letter and Video From Ruben Bermudez

March 21, 2012

Dear HIV,

Let me just tell you how much I love and hate you. Love and hate, yea I said it. I like to start off with the bad and end with good so let's start there.

I hate you because you have cost me so many things in my life. You cost me money, health, friendships, relationships, and my youth. You're a nasty Bitch, hateful, uncaring, blind, ignorant, and the list goes on and on. I'm sure by now you're hearing a lot from my friends who you've violated but now you're going to hear it from me.

How dare you show yourself in my life, my body and to my friends! Nobody asked for you to show up nobody wants you around. Get your shit, get your shit, and get the Fuck out!
