Rally Together for Each Other

Hi ladies, it's been a long while since I've checked in or written on my blog. Life's been busy, a lot of things have changed for me. Things I thought I would never see.

I was 18 when I was diagnosed with HIV, that was 1989. At that time there was no hope of survival past six months, so all my plans and dreams were destroyed. I can say now that that was a traumatic experience for me, although I was used to being let down and forgotten. At the time I showed no fear in the face of HIV. That's what my life had taught me. Show no fear and stare them right back in the face or else they'll squash you. Those were hard times and while they were not what a typical teenager grows up with, it molded me into a strong young woman.
