I just want to make a statement very quickly. PLEASE READ IT THOROUGHLY AND LET IT SINK IN!!!!

Yes, I have an incurable disease but YET, it is indeed manageable. I am no threat to anyone and my life still proceeds to go on. You have no right to belittle me or make me feel as if I'm less of a human being. I wouldn't proclaim that HIV made me, but it has definitely altered me! I didn't know how powerful and strong I was until it was my only stance! Please stop calling me NASTY, INFECTIOUS, A WHORE, DIRTY, SICK, etc... because I AM NONE OF THESE THINGS.
