It's my first year anniversary with HIV

Submitted on Jun 21, 2012 by  dasassidiva

This month I'm celebrating a rather complex issue...round about this year I was diagnosed with HI Virus and little did I know that my life was about to change. I remember that day like it was yesterday, I remember throwing myself in bed and crying hysterical OH! God I had hoped that that day would be blocked from my memory for life, I remember my little brother asking me that day if I was okay and all I did was break down. I had called my then boyfriend and told him the dreadful news and he was all supportive and I was certain we would be in this together. The next day we went to test the both of us and we were both positive.

We picked ourselves and decided to move forward and move on from that day forward to 1 year later although life is still hard I have managed to be at peace with it and accept that life's unpredictable thus you can't control certain events occurring in life's journey. God has blessed me with a wonderful man who's HIV- and loves me as much as I deserve. To sum this up: although life is not easy, it's definitely worth it. I didn't think I would have made this far and to God be the glory!

Dearest Sassy Diva,

You are lucky and blessed. Count your blessings one by one and see what Lord has done.... (reminds me of Church Hymn)

Love n (((hugs)))

It is amazing to me when we think that when we get this horriable news, TIME stands still. But it doesn't. I wondered how my family could go to work when we just got this news? Don't they care? But alass, eventhough the news is life-changing. It really only changes your life (my life), people still need to work, and support their family. The laundry still needs to be done and the dishes washed... isn't that what makes the world go around lol

I am glad you can find the positive in this... not too many can.
