A Girl Like Me (AGLM), a program of The Well Project, is a blog where women ( cis and trans ) 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.

Time for an update! I know this update is long overdue but there are not enough hours in a day, especially when you have two kids. So, if you remember my last blog, I shared my pregnancy news and my...

My lovely people how have you been? I was visiting my beloved country in January and part of February this year. While visiting many places and interacting with many people, I realized the incredibly important place that women have in...

I must admit in certain areas in my life I finally realized I was being a people pleaser. I never looked at it like that until I saw how it has affected me. I would agree to things I would...

Good afternoon. My name is Barbara Elaine Edwards. I am a sixty-eight-year-old African American female. I was diagnosed with HIV on October 16, 1995. At the time of my diagnosis, I was incarcerated at a women's prison. The day I...
