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.

Living with HIV and Addiction

The aftermath and education...

I made it through. I am Clean! Off these drugs taking my serenity from me. I notice as days turn to weeks just what my part in stigma is. I am disappointed I have allowed myself to become a Stigmatizer myself. I found that by being...

Held the Gun, Been the Gun Slinger

So the topic today comes to mind after a person reacted completely like a jackass. Uneducated and ignorant. You have to believe that without education of any type your just an ass with a mouth and words; careful with those, you cannot unsay anything. So my question would be: Why do...
