Intro - sologirl

Hi, I am 44 years old, and was diagnosed with HIV at the age of 19 way back in 1989. I grew up on the east coast and life was not easy or simple for me as a child.

I am a survivor of several kinds of abuse, for which none of us deserve no matter the excuse given. Most of my childhood and adolescence I lived on the run, or in detention centers, foster care, or state care. Finally when I became an adult, I thought I was free!! No more chains to bind me, no more adults to lock me up because they couldn't understand my running and anger.
