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. It was in 2012.   I had went in for my routine testing which was every 3-6 months.  I acknowledged that I was doing some risky sexual behaviors. Mind you I was a former sex worker, amateur porn star, and just living dangerously. I did hard drugs which is a constant struggle, but I'm yet holding on.   I had already had a dream months prior that I would end up positive, but the next day I had taken a test that came back negative, meaning that at that time I was not termed positive or the test was non reactive.  However, a few months later I decided to get tested…
