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.

Intro - Imnobody

I'm a 54 year old single Mom and Grandmother. I am newly diagnosed April of 2016. I am a psychology student. I run a charity that helps runaways and young people - women aging out of foster care. I am a cancer survivor. But above all I am a survivor!...

It's All in the Knowing!

Everyone is ignoring the fact that HIV has consumed the bodies of so many of our friends, family members, neighbors, co-workers, church members, and even some of our enemies. Now, they want you to think that the dis-ease is just a chronic dis-ease and you can live happily ever after....

Where There Is Hope, There Is Change

Why Women imageWhile many four letter words come to mind regarding yesterday's House vote to pass the American Health Care Act (labeled by some as an "act of monstrous cruelty"), the one we need to keep at the forefront is HOPE. In our community, we've seen the transformative change that...

Straight from the Heart

As a young girl growing up, my life began with the "normalcy" of being sexually molested by my step-dad, waking to the sounds of seeing him beat my mom, waking my brother and I up (he is 4 years younger than myself) and making us watch as he ripped clothes...

Intro - Tracey

I am a wife and mother of six children, one who was born with HIV over 27 years ago, and have been living with HIV myself for over 30 years. Recently I was awarded the 2020 Leading Women's Society award, where 20 women in the nation were recognized for their...

My Trip to Manatee County Jail

Upon entering the police vehicle I asked the officer to please let me take my purse so I had my meds, they were very important. I told the officer I was HIV positive and my meds were in the purse. He then screamed at me "What the fuck is wrong...

When Is It Enough?

As it draws closer to my mom’s birthday, I can’t help but still be overcome with emotion. I can’t emphasize how I felt my life would surely end because I’ve never known sadness like losing my mom. I still haven’t been able to make sense of why my mom didn’t...
