Maria and Lisa's Bilingual Video Blog (Our Detox Juicing Recipe)

A Video Blog

October 25, 2012

This article was cross-posted from "A Girl Like Me," a program of The Well Project.

Hi everyone. Below is a bilingual video of my partner, Lisa, and I describing another one of the healthy juices we make -- this one is a detox juice. I also talk about the vitamins and supplements I am taking right now. Just remember to talk to your healthcare provider when you take any vitamins/supplements to make sure there are not any reactions with any of the medications you are taking.

Love and Light, Maria Mejia and Lisa Laing

Hola a todos. Abajo hay un video bilingue de my companera , Lisa, y yo describiendo otro de los jugos saludables que hacemos ... este es un jugo para desintoxicar el organismo. Yo tambien hablo de las vitaminas que estoy consumiendo ahora. Siempre recuerden de hablar con su medico cuando tomen cualquier vitamina o supplementos para que no hagan interaccion con niguno de los medicamentos que ya tomamos amor y luz.

Time to Show My Face and Take the Stigma Away

Maria T. Mejia

Maria T. Mejia

I am a Colombian female who lives in Miami, Florida. I've been positive for 20 years. Although almost all my life I've been in long-term relationships with HIV-negative men, I am happily married to a woman who is wonderful and caring. We have been together almost three years and she is HIV negative. I have no children but we will look into having! I am an activist, a peer educator, a caregiver. I volunteered for the Red Cross in education for the Hispanic HIV community and also the American community. I was a pre- and post-test counselor. I have spoken in many conferences and done a lot of outreach in the community, especially in the schools for prevention and education. It is part of my everyday life to educate everyone I can on this subject. Being HIV positive is nothing to be ashamed about! We are strong women, and we will take away all the stigmas slowly but we have to open up.
