Newly Diagnosed With HIV
Over the past year, I've been really good about remembering all I have to be grateful for in my life.
April 2013 was particularly portentous because of all the milestones it would mark.
I was now dressed in an ill-fitting, decidedly untailored and egregiously unflattering hospital gown, lying on my back arguing with nurses
It was strange to suddenly realize how I had pushed my feelings down as a way to deal with the overwhelming, almost daily grief
Since the day I agreed to the taping for Poz, there was a constantly growing nervousness in the pit of my stomach.
What I learned from the experience was that each person has their own complex feelings about HIV and disclosure
I had a voicemail message from my doc asking me to call him. I went into a private office and called him back. He was very straightforward.
When I was first asked to blog for POZ, I resisted. Blogging is not a natural thing for me.
