This is my blog site about my life, my family, and my journey being diagnosed with HIV since 1997. My life has never been the same and I want to open up and show others that some days are not easy, but I strive to live and be happy within myself. Learning to love me has helped me to keep smiling and has allowed me to show others that they to can live with HIV. Having a beautiful child being HIV positive has helped me to see that i am living and thriving just as anyone who is not diagnosed with HIV. Feelings and poems about how and what I feel day to day. Disclosing my HIV status to the world is not an easy thing, but I live and deal with the choice I made to make a difference in the life of others to show them that they can be happy in their journey and live in their truth.
