Waheedah's intro

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.....
