Hiding when I am sick is not a good thing/Esconder que estoy enferma no es algo bueno

This April will be my 25th year anniversary living with HIV. The last 2 years of living with HIV have been the hardest for me and many do not know this. I don’t like to show or tell people when I feel ill, and it is very frustrating for me to know that I am doing everything I am supposed to and then some, and still feel like I am a baby – exposure to any virus or bug and I am sick once again. It seems I haven’t been able to catch a break as far as getting ill and I have written before about feeling stuck…never completely ill for a hospitalization and never 100 percent healthy to feel good. For those of you that know me, you know I am a hard worker and when I have energy I get so happy that I run myself out!! I know I have to take it easy, but it seems like I am feeling more weak more days, so those days that I am ok I want to live to the fullest and live intensely!! I am so grateful to my mother that prays for me daily and motivates me from far away.
