A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

It's my 1 year on August 24th and wondered how to deal with it that day.

It's just another day. I'll celebrate when there's an actual cure.

Embrace who you are as a person. Don't let HIV DEFINE you! Your like any other person with an illness. Celebrate your life many don't have that opportunity.

I stopped getting drunk on the anniversary, and started to appreciate being given another year. Over the years I actually try to forget what ut was like thirty years ago. Celebrate life and don't think of it as a death sentence.

In the early years I would get drunk and celebrate another year of Living. As the years ticked by (now more than 30), I just can't. The good part when diagnosed was that it was a death sentence. I thought I wouldn't have to live and watch other friends and family go before me. It's just not working out that way...
