Take charge of your DEATH...

Take charge of your DEATH.
Yes, you read right….

In March 2018 India’s Supreme Court has allowed people to draw up “living will”, meaning they can seek what is known as passive #euthanasia

The right to die with dignity is a fundamental right.
(Only if one is suffering from a terminal illness or is in a vegetative state).
For me, as a #personlivingwithhiv it makes...

Alcohol and medicine don’t mix. Never!
Schedule your medicine intake 4 hours before. If you are a social drinker who...

HIV and Relationship <3

HIV and Relationship When I am in a relationship, I give it my 100%, totally investing in it. But if it doesn’t work, nothing else will, no matter how hard you try. You cannot move ahead with something when there is no hope or try to fix the crack when there are no amends. We were probably not meant to be together. When you have to go away from someone...

I have battled rejection and betrayal
That doesn't stop me from falling in love again 

I have handled depression, violence and suicide
Now, no demon can ever defeat me

I have known loneliness and sadness
Still I find happiness in my solitude

I have been hated, shunned, ostracised
But still my heart is full of love and above all, understanding 

I can be very forgiving
