It is going on 26 years for me and it has been a roller coaster but mostly good.

HIV has changed my life and for the better. Before my diagnosis I was so down on myself because I was feeling like no one cared about me and I felt so alone. The only person who I felt ever cared about me was my wife and after her passing in Jan of 93 I really started to feel depressed. Then after my diagnosis my family started to call me all the time to see how I was doing more and wanted more information on HIV which I did provide to them, I started counseling and when I finally started to feel better I was able to find my current partner who has really helped me to feel much better about myself. I feel that HIV has brought a lot of new friends into my life and I am so glad now to be able to help support others living with HIV and by helping others I know that I am helping myself at the same time.

I'd like to start off by answering my own question. for me it's been a mixed bag of emotions. Some days I feel blessed, others not so much. Overall I am grateful and humbled to still be alive and to have learned a great deal since my diagnosis 27 years ago. It has somewhat stifled my ability to produce the income I was earning before my diagnosis. That much has changed. Having said that I have learned that less is more. For that I am grateful...I don't regret anything and hope that there are better days to come for all of us.. โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œโ™ฅ๏ธ
