HIV diagnosis

It’s hard to believe that we’re coming up on the 40 th anniversary of the first reports of what would come to be known as HIV. My personal journey with HIV began in 1994 when my sister, Ellen, was diagnosed with AIDS—with under 100 T-cells. It was a devastating diagnosis for my family, and the after-effects (including the degree to which her disease was accepted, or not, by those around her, and what she did with that) have had a long-lasting impact on me.

Con respecto a compartir nuestros diagnóstico con otras personas, creo que no hay una "fórmula mágica" que le funcione a todas las personas de la misma manera
