First, I have been blessed to survive this ailment for 25 years thus far. That HIV is no longer considered a death sentence. What I hope to expose is to let people know that “QUITTING IS NOT AN OPTION” if you are diagnosed with HIV. That life is worth living and that you can continue to live life to the fullest. Nothing changes in your life,except you take better care of yourself. That you have to “BEAT IT AND NOT LET IT BEAT YOU”. Love, relationships and kids can still happen. I have also been through domestic violence and molestation. I am still standing tall and strong. I hope that I can encourage someone to “NOT GIVE UP”.
