Dear Vee's HIV
I want to make it clear to you and all others that my virus for sure will die with me.
I will never pass you on to anyone else.
But until I die I live in a symbiotic relationship with you my virus in that you can't live without me, but I cannot shift you from my body.
So even though I am on meds that keeps you, for now, under control, stops you getting the upper hand and overwhelming my body, I cannot ultimately get rid of you except ... by my death.
As long as I live you live too.
When I die you die too.
And while I intend to live my life to the full and as long as possible ...
On my death believe me I will be, while dying, celebrating the death of you the virus that has made me its home.
