Take Your Meds! (Video)

By Rev. Andrena Ingram

August 28, 2013

This is in response to a few articles that seem to be making the rounds about certain "pastors/faith leaders" telling folks to stop taking their medication. And that "God" will heal them.

This is my first videolog (or whatever they call it). I didn't cover as much information as I would've liked to, the main point is DO NOT STOP TAKING YOUR MEDICATION WITHOUT YOUR DOCTOR'S KNOWLEDGE.

My video is not addressing theology ... we have enough people throwing "theology" around. HIV has its own theology: get tested, know your status, get educated, get treated -- or you will possibly die.

My message is simply sharing MY experience ... and MY suggestion. Don't listen to people who do not "know" what your journey is. Do not stop taking your medication simply because someone (most likely who is NOT living with this disease) tells you to.

Rev. Ingram
