What Are HIV Community Members Most Proud Of?

Community Counseling Center of Southern Nevada, Las Vegas

Being there for my clients. I'm a mental health and a substance abuse counselor. All of my clients are HIV positive. I've had some where I know them from the day they were diagnosed to the day they died. Just being there every step of the way. I have some of my clients I've had for almost the full 11 years that I've been doing this. And, I've become the mother hen from hell, and they all know that. Making sure that they take their medications, and being there, compliant. Working through all kinds of issues. I've seen the whole gamut from first diagnosis to being there when they died.
