I celebrate 10 years and 8 years since my HIV and AIDS diagnosis,respectively, next month. This is tricky because I am a BIG advocate for personal accountability. When you allow someone to do something to you then you assume responsibility in part for the outcome. It took so soul searching to stop blaming the other person and to own my part in the situation.
