A Girl Like Me (AGLM) is a program of The Well Project and is an online “blog” where women of all ages can share their stories and promote understanding of HIV through online storytelling. There are millions of women around the globe who are living with HIV and AIDS, yet many feel they are alone in their disease and isolated in the experiences they go through each day. The goals of AGLM are to help normalize HIV and AIDS in women and girls, and create a safe space for women living with HIV from around the world to speak out and share their experience of what it is to live life with HIV.

An Ordinary Woman

An ordinary woman, who has lived an extraordinary life. Now age 61.5... I am Humbled, Blessed and truly Grateful for All. My entire life, in retrospect has been one of uniqueness, never following the norm of anything. I've always known that God has placed me here for a purpose.

All in the Name of a Cure

HIV and Me… All in the name of finding a cure what I did.

I diagnosed myself in 2000, but at that time there was no public information about the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). My whole world broke into a million pieces and at that time I had no idea...

An Advocate's Thoughts

Being an advocate, I'm subjected to some not so favorable experiences.

 

 

  1. Cure fanatics who believe me to be ignorant for not at least trying herbalist options.
  2. People who assume I, and every other HIV positive person, did something "wrong" to be HIV positive.
  3. People who ask me questions
