I have had good and bad experiences in the workplace once I became HIV positive. When doing work outside of HIV my experience was not so good. I worked in a shelter for women. I was so not cut out for it. The stress of working there after a time took a toll on me health wise. If I am working in a field that is compassionate towards HIV it makes a world of difference. Especially when it comes to not having to explain why I may have more doctor’s appointments than normal.
