Intro - Connie Rose

Hey there folks,

My name is Connie Rose and I was living in Indiana during the time I found out I was positive -  in a small farming community snug in the hip of the bible belt. I was only 21 years old with a 10-month old baby girl that I had unknowingly breastfed while being HIV-Positive. She is, by the grace of god, HIV-Negative. I lived the first 17 years of my “HIV life” alone, with only the people around me being allowed to talk about me and my story of HIV. I was treated very poorly and that is why when I moved away to a place where no one could physically, mentally, or emotionally ever touch me or hurt me again with their ignorance, I began my own journey of telling MY story of life after HIV. Because there is life after HIV. It is not the end of the world, it is only the beginning of a new lifestyle.
