Two Years Since My HIV Diagnosis

A Video Blog

June 6, 2013

Today is two years since I was diagnosed with HIV. If you would've told me two years ago that I would be, at this very moment of my life, healthier than I'd ever been, probably more emotionally healthy than I've even been, I probably would've laughed in your face and called you a liar!

Watch Aaron's videos of the first 13 months after his diagnosis.
