I can’t believe it has been 3 months since I posted. When I first became involved with the AGLM blog I was so nervous, yet so excited to have an outlet for my HIV “junk.” The good part is that after I wrote my first 2 posts I felt a great deal of relief. I guess that sustained my heart for a while, that and reading the posts and comments from other women. Then I started feeling guilty that I hadn’t written in so long. I have been wrestling with what to write because often when I think of my HIV everything is negative. I don’t want every post of mine to be sad, negative, or ugly. So I haven’t written.
Today I am just writing to say “Hello sisters!” I am still out here. I am here for all of you, and I need all of you as well. I’ve actually been doing alright. I had my annual physical yesterday. I’m sure I’ll get my lab results in a couple of days and I hope that they will be good. I am working very hard to be in the moment and practice living one day at a time. What I know today is that I am lucky to have a job, a car, a home, great friends, a loving partner and most importantly a supportive family and a perfect (almost 2 yr old) son! Have a beautiful Tuesday and give a hug to yourself and those you love.
