Come join my group in Facebook! I am so proud of this group that I founded around 12 years ago! It started with like 100 people and it's international and it's in English. ❤️ I also created one in Spanish for all Latin America and Spain. ❤️ I wanted to create a support group online - something I didn't have when I got #HIV at the age of 15 in 1988 or when I found out I had it and had no support in 1991.
I was just turning 18 years old! No medicine! No internet! No support groups! I didn't know anyone else that had HIV and all I knew was what I saw on TV: gay white men in San Francisco dying. 😢 The stigma, the ignorance that still exists in this uneducated society! And it was a death sentence that I managed to survive while millions died. 😢 I have survivor's guilt because of it, anxiety, depression (but medicated)… and of course, PTSD because of it and what has happened to me in my roller coaster life. I am still here and standing! 🙏🏻
