This picture explains my life right now. It’s hectic, full of emotions and change. My life has changed over a day. I got some news about my health. I am now HIV Positive. That’s a huge thing for me to say-type out. It’s a major… Something that I could pass on to someone and yet it’s manageable. The shock of hearing I was positive was upsetting. I broke down and cried. I have felt like I wanted to give up. Feeling like dying was the best solution. I have talked with many friends that are HIV poz and it hasn’t stopped them from living a normal life. My life expectancy will go down by a year or two. But i know I am going to live forever. So now I am at the stage of my life where I don’t know where to go. I am scared and unsure of what’s going to happen next. Please keep me in your thoughts and hearts!
It’s going to be a bumpy ride.
