Suicide And Multiple Diagnosis

Suicide And Multiple Diagnosis

HIV is not the only disease I have to deal with. I also have to do with diabetes, fighting cancers, high blood pressure and cholesterol and also deal with my mental illness.
Which bring up the point of me harming myself and possibly thinking about committing suicide. I feel like now I'm just waiting to die. I don't know which one is going to kill me first; cancer, diabetes, HIV, or me.

How Are You Keeping Up With Your HIV Doc Visits And Labs During The Virus?
