Who Am I?


I'm determined not to let HIV depression get me down.

I'm determined not to let HIV exhaustion get me down.

I'm determined not to let HIV stigma make me bitter and closed off.

The anxiety of disclosure will not make me feel small and dirty. It must not kill my hope of finding the love I deserve.

I have vowed not to let medication adherence wear me thin as fuck (even though it does) - and become medication non-adherent because of it. I am sick to damn death of taking a pill every day. Sadly (and yet hopefully), unless and until there is a cure, I have another 30-40 years of taking that shit. I'm not 50 yet and I want to live a long life. Which means the periodic irritation of a medication regimen that I need to keep me healthy.
