Remember One Thing...

What's new, you asked?  I know it's been a minute, but I need you to understand that I've been on the grind for HIV/AIDS Awareness hardcore still the same.  Simply because so much is going on, but yet so much is still remaining the same.  A different name, another relationship, and yet the same old same old "stuff" that so many of us have to deal with.  HIV/AIDS is spreading like fungus in our communities.

So, a new person came into a small town with their good looks, swag ways, and charming words and enticed & sexed so many lovers (men & women) without a condom, squirting HIV with every drip of "come" they could muster out.   Little did they know or little did they care that just possibly they were being infected, except their only concern was captivating a new lover in their bed that they could call their own!

What am I doing wrong?  Why the message of protecting yourself is not being heard?  How come so many people are still doing what they do sexually, and feel like it just can't happen to them?  I just want to scream from 61 Hamilton Place apartment building roof top at the top of my lungs, "Are you listening to the words that are coming out of my mouth"? So, I sit and question my advocacy, my commitment, my hustle of being the community town crier!

HIV/AIDS are still here, and spreading like the speed of the #2 train during rush hour from 135th street.  So, the next time you meet a good looking, swag out individual attracting you with enticing words to melt your heart…..remember one thing:

HIV/AIDS looks just like YOU!

Unfortunately, it can be difficult to find a friendly health care provider who is knowledgeable about HIV and pregnancy. Some health care providers simply are not aware of the wealth of information about pregnancy planning for their patients living with HIV (HIV+). Perhaps even more challenging, though, are the judgmental attitudes that many health care providers still have.
