Being positive about being Positive
December, 1st is World AIDS Day - which is the day designated every year since 1988 to raising awareness to the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection and mourning those who have died of the disease.
Since then, science and technology have advanced immensely, so being positive is, in ANY WAY AT ALL, a death sentence ANYMORE.
Back in September, I published a blog post called 'The stigma is in our heads', and the response it had was very good.

I found the article very moving and inspirational, and I am grateful he is sharing this article with the rest of the world through #marlife.
