Like most people, I never in a million years thought I would be diagnosed HIV positive. I decided to start this website for all the millions of people infected and affected by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus. I will never forget the day when my test results were returned and my entire life took a completely different turn. I would say a turn for the worst but as I look back I think it was a turn for the better… It is hard to explain why I feel that way and one would probably not understand until you are faced with this diagnosis. After the initial shock and great fear of the unknown subsided I did as most experience the grieving process. As I look back to March 19th, 2013 I realize my grieving was a huge part of my healing process. I was grieving my “old life” and now I must live my new life. Maybe my dreams are bigger than my britches but I want to do my very best to fill them. My goal is to create a space where people can come together and share their experiences. Good and bad alike. Eventually I would like to travel to High Schools and Colleges across the nation to share my story and hopefully prevent this from happening to others. As ignorant as it may sound I honestly had no idea this could happen to me. I only wish someone would have told me HIV does not discriminate.
