I am a woman in a town of men

JaeI have tried. I might not have tried hard enough. But really, what is hard enough? I have gone and filled out the application to volunteer at the local AIDS service center many times, with no reply. I am not an RN, but I am on my way to be....so I feel I have skills that they might be able to utilize. I have spoken to anyone that will listen to the facts and fictions of HIV/AIDS, especially when it comes to women’s health. I was invited to sit on a panel for the county, the meetings are during the day and interfere with my school/ work schedule. I am not a man. They service mostly men. I never thought that this would happen to me. I have just given up. I still tell people that they are a good source of information, especially for the male, low income community. Where do the rest of us go? I seriously have no idea!!!!! Where do they people go that are not low income and are not men? I go to a private therapist. That is fine for someone to talk to but it really doesn’t help, she empathizes with my problems, but just doesn't understand. When all I want is to meet others face to face that are like me. It shouldn’t matter what tax bracket I am in, I need support just like the rest of them. Jae

Hello Jae what is the problem , not your tax bracket, there are too many HIV postive women that crying to talk with someone else who truly understands. Please just look around or go back to the low income place .

I am so sorry hun. that is why I founded the 2 international support groups in English and in Spanish. since their really was nothing for us women!! especially lesbian women who are rarely talked about. I created my own space where we all are equal. a place where anyone can come in at anytime and get someone to give them support because I have admins from all of the continents. this is why I consider social media so important.

love and light
