A Girl Like Me (AGLM), a program of The Well Project, is a blog where women ( cis and trans The Well Project serves women across the gender spectrum. (More about gender identity)) can share their experiences and promote understanding of HIV. Millions of women around the globe are living with HIV, yet many feel they are alone in their disease and isolated in their day-to-day experiences. The goals of AGLM are to help normalize HIV; and to create a safe space for women living with HIV from around the world to speak out and share their experiences – with each other, and with those seeking a support community.

Coming Soon

I can't wait to share with y'all all the ish I’ve been going through!

I'm not about to let 10yrs of surviving HIV end with me just popping out the ground only talking about HIV.

Turned on Goodie Mob, Big Boi, & BackBone this morning and realized that my heart...

Let's get back on track!

It is 1 December, WORLD AIDS DAY, and this year's theme is "Global solidarity, resilient services".

The world has known a rough year because of covid-19. And this has sometimes made us forget about the fight to end HIV and AIDS by 2030. I would like to take this moment...

World AIDS Day 2020

Yesterday as we celebrated World AIDS Day, I reflected a little bit on my own journey of having HIV living with me. I have been HIV positive for 5 years. I have been undetectable since I began treatment and have been fortunate enough to be healthy and thriving. I know...

Somebody Like Me

Awwwww shit.

Here comes the uncomfortable feelings.

The ones that come when I don't have a man by my side.

I'm going to try to explain what I'm feeling, which is hard because I don't really believe half of this mess.

I feel good, for the most part.

I feel...

One of Many Reflections

You know life can be so heart-wrenching difficult. In my most recent days I've had to look at life from a new lens. Since experiencing the heart attack, I no longer have the same capacity to do as much as I used to and it's been so hard to accept....

Being a thriving POS WOMAN 32 DARN YEARS !!!! No one could have told me that I would have made it to see fewer pills. It been 6 years and am doing ok my CD4 count is 990 and am undetectable. This has been a real struggle in the past. I got off drugs, left the street life, was in stable housing (which...

You people

I am born dark brown although many people prefer to call my colour black. OK, then I am black! Do you have a problem with that?

It's shocking how ignorant people remain about racism! In a week I experienced two cases, and I will share the most bizarre example here...

I Almost Forgot

Every morning I take a pill and that has been my life for almost three years. Still, somehow I almost forget. I live day to day trying to better myself, and create different streams of income. All because I want - no, I need - to create generational wealth and...

Talented migrant

My lovely people, can you explain to me why white people coming to Africa are quickly called "experts", but people of African descent in Europe are often called "refugees, migrants, or illegals"?

After I married my husband, in the different countries in Africa we lived in I became the "expert's...

Never Settle!

Hi all, as an aging member of our community I have seen and dealt with a lot of issues.

Yesterday during a group conference call regarding health and aging with HIV, I learned that a drug I took for my HIV back 20 years ago was the probable cause for...

New Start

A diagnosis of HIV can be devastating; and it brings with it a mix of thoughts and emotions that turn the mind and the heart inside out. Yet in light of one's diagnosis, the human desire to be cherished, loved and supported cannot be extinguished. They are an intrinsic part of being human.

Every person has a desire to experience life’s goodness, with all of its joys and personal accomplishments,...

When you are first...

When you are first diagnosed, it feels like you have been given a life sentence. You feel isolated and alone. You are left within the whirlwind of your thoughts and emotions. It is a mental and emotional roller coaster of coming to terms with the new reality that you have HIV.

Though it can be seen as a life sentence in terms of it being a lifelong medical condition, you...

I want the world to know

In May 2014 I finally told my secret; I published a note called "The Hidden Truth" on facebook to inform everyone about my HIV. I had been thinking about coming out of the closet for many years and that day I was ready to share my reality and prepared to...
