5 Years Since The Diagnosis

This blog post will find you a couple days before World AIDS Day which is on December 1st, 2017. Although we deal with HIV/AIDS awareness and education and what not on this day, the work does not stop and start on one day. It is an on going thing.   I chose this time to write this blog post, because today marks 5 years since, I found out that I had contracted HIV.  I will never forget that day for as long as I shall live.
