It shakes me to the core when I think about death.  I never used to be afraid before.  I question myself what am I really afraid of.  I'm not sure what I am afraid of.  Is it death or is it the suffering in the eyes of the people I have watched in countless AIDS documentaries that has turned me into a coward?  Whatever it is that frightens me so much, I know one thing, while I'm here I'm going to live, live, live...and while I'm at it, do everything I can to stay healthy. 

 "A coward dies many times before his death. The valiant never taste of death but once."  William Shakespeare. 

 Fear be gone!!

I fear never finding a GOOD MAN that will love and understand my situation and not fear me. I have been living with HIV for 4 years and I suffer from depression as well, and I have come to a place where I don't fear death it is inevitable reguardless of ANY cercomstances. We're ALL going to die eventually. The human race is not guarantied a peaceful death weather you have this disease or not. We can only Hope that we will go painlessly.
