I got my HIV diagnosis - never thought I'd have made it this far in the early days, weeks and months after it happened but I have, must be that 'fuck the virus' attitude I adopted on the 10th anniversary!


Diagnosed 11th September 1991
Current CD4 count 484 (26%); viral load undetectable (December 2011).

Good for you, Emma!  You go girl  ;D
Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important

The heaviest thing you can carry is a grudge..

One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

One thing you can't recycle is wasted time.
