Intro - Angel

My name is Angel Stetson. I am living in Sarasota, Fl. with my boyfriend of over four years. I am living with HIV and he is not. I joined The Well Project last year to learn more about how I could help other women and girls to avoid the stigma and terror I experienced from the world around me. My biggest hurts unfortunately came from family. They did not understand and I did not want to talk about being diagnosed positive for HIV. Today I realize the importance of language; as some terms can just turn me into a blubbering mess.

Sharing my life....

<p>Thank you Angel from Greece.</p> <p>I have never been in a relationship with a positive man. I guess I didnt think how truly lucky I am to be loved completly and accepted until I realized He loved&nbsp; me and HIV is a part of who I am .</p> <p>HIV is not who I am its just a small part of me.&nbsp; Being in a serodiscordinant relationship not worrying about what he thinks, having chats on topics that may concern us. We are learning together about rising above stigma.</p>

Good Morning

<p>Thank you for the kind words. Yesterday being a very weird day...I spoke with a person I never thought I would say I am HIV positive too. The best part she understood me. She accepted me. I am stoked to be a part of such a great cause. I live each day as if I have a purpose. I am truly blessed to be able to express myself, my views, and to help others to understand while helping myself.</p> <p>This new journey is just the beginning of what I know will be an awesome chapter on learning, loving, and being a survivor. Stay beautiful woman and Thank you for your comments.</p> <p>I will posting a new blog soon so we can talk, love and support each other.</p>
