You don’t know me but my story is a common one
because my life has changed since I became HIV positive.
Now I live my life at the back of the queue.
At the doctor, dentist. They see everyone before me.
They have their own reasons I suppose but it’s hard.
Always at the back for everything
Always last for everything
Not my words but the real live experience of someone forced to live with the stigma we attach to people living with or affected by HIV.
The thing is there is now good treatment for HIV but where is the treatment for the way the rest of us think.
