I know it has been so very long since I have updated everyone. Where should I start. I am almost finished with my first year in nursing school, that is the reason I have been MIA. That is where I am going to start...

Nursing School:

I was in class the other day and my instructor was talking about the working in the AIDS ward at our local hospital. I was shocked how long she has been out of practice. There hasn't been an AIDS ward in years. One of my fellow classmates asked me, "Where do they put them now there isn't a ward for them." I looked at her with disbelief. I asked her... where do they put everyone else? I thought this would be a great opportunity to educate her, and I did. I am still surprised, and I shouldn't be, to the ignorance of people when it comes to HIV and AIDS. I hope I made it a little clearer for her.


I am going to be a grandmother in June.... CRAZY!!! I became a great-aunt yesterday. I am very blessed! I never thought I would live to see the day that my children Graduate from High School much less having children... I have a feeling I will be around to see my grand-daughter graduate too.


I have been to the doctor for regular check-ups, nothing new to report. I do feel there could be more resources for women. They kind of bunch all of the women support groups with, people with terminal illnesses... I don't feel I am terminal... I just feel this is something I have to deal with... Like someone living with Diabetes...

I read all of your updates and you all inspire me every day!!

Just think I was diagnosed when I was 21 years old! I really never thought I would see things like this happen in my life... LIVING PROOF that there is life after a diagnosis :)
