At the End of the Day: Remembering Meds When Life's Run You Ragged
September 1, 2011
On its own, being a parent comes with many challenges. Then, throw in being HIV positive and having to ensure you take your meds, which is another difficulty and sometimes a pain to do.
Take Life Seriously, but Do Not Forget to Have Fun!
July 9, 2011
Hello again, and yes it has been a little bit of time. Do you ever wonder why people take life so seriously and never smile or laugh or even joke? For me personally, I used to be that person. Life for me, when I was given my diagnosis, was not fun or happy, and forget cracking a smile. I was a very mean, upset, angry woman, and that would also add to my stress. After having a family of my own and going through some things, I can say life is meant to be enjoyed!!! Yes, I understand there is a time and place for everything, but adjusting your thinking can make all the difference.
Being Optimistic: Hard but Possible
May 4, 2011
Hello! My name is Teniecka Drake and I have been interviewed on a few occasions for TheBody.com. I have three children all under the age of three and I am excited to be blogging for TheBody.com. I really wanted to be able to have an even more personal touch along with the interviews.
Since her HIV diagnosis in 2001 -- and her marriage, and the recent births of her three children -- Teniecka really has been taking life for more fun! She's spoken nationally about living with HIV, been in Ebony Magazine, and now she's blogging to encourage other HIV-positive people in times when they might need a boost.
