It's been a long time since I've had the time to send something in. I've been working and volunteering a lot the past few years. I get fatigued a lot, but I push myself.
I have two peer worker positions, one at Planned Parenthood working with people who are of unknown or negative status and the other at the clinic where I receive my primary care working with clients who have medication adherence challenges. They are both very rewarding, especially since I just passed a milestone last month when I turned sixty years old. I feel like the last 20 years have truly been a gift. I never thought I'd see 40.
Tomorrow I go for labs and it's the first time in 27 years since my diagnosis that I've gone six months in between blood work and seeing my HIV doctor. Though all has been going well, it has given me some anxiety waiting this long. I've been undetectable since 2003, but I sometimes fear that something will go wrong even though I always take my meds right. I wonder if any one else gets anxious like this or it's just me.
It's good to have a place to share with other women who understand how I feel.
I'll write in again after I get my results, hoping all is good.
