Waheedah's intro

Submitted on Nov 19, 2009 by  Shabazzel

Why do I want to submit blogs to The Well Project’s “A Girl Like Me” Blog?

Mainly because I know how alone I felt when I was first diagnosed.  Not only did I feel alone but I felt violated, vulnerable and powerless.  Today I have taken control of my HIV and my destiny through the power I gained from other survivors.  Now I live the life and carry the message that you need not surrender your lives to HIV.  Now my life is full because I have learned the power of being a part of the solution and I learned that from a girl like me.

I certainly shall continue to post here.  Your comments make all worth my efforts to deliver words of hope and inspiration.  I am inspired just to know there are women like you who speak out, perhaps not in roaring bellows, but you have certainly spoken to my heart and I can hear you loud and clear. Best, Wishes.....

Through others, we learn. Through their experience, we feel and understand. And through their journey we come across the decision to which road we take. Hence, thank you for blogging. Thank you for sharing your story. Through stories, we are inspired and motivated.

Love and Light
