Don't go through what l have

I have just turned 16 years old one month ago. I finally got my lisense.. I've never thought that i would live this long. when I was 4 years old I was always in and out of the hospital. My mom was only 15 when she had me. The doctors and hospitals did not know what was wrong with with me and testing for HIV was the last test that they took. I turned out to have full blown AIDS. That's when my mom found out that she was HIV+. She had no idea until the day that I found out. (I didn't know my father). My mom had a boyfriend at the time that we found out and he was with me ever since I was 1 so I considered him my dad. About 6 years my mom got pregnant again. She took medicene while she was pregnant and then she had my little brother. My brother came out negative. A year after he was born my mom got sick. She was only 28 years old and was admitted to the hospital for one year. After that she moved on to the hospice house. It was such a hard time for me and my family. My mom was my best friend. while she was in the hospital i went and lived with my grandparents. After a year and a half of battling my mom passed away. We then had a family meeting and the guy who I had always called my "dad" (not bilogical) decided he didn't want to keep me or my little brother who was his real dad. I went and lvied with my grandparents and my brother now lives 80 miles away from me with one of my relatives.

I'm telling this story because I don't want anyone to go through what I have. Make sure that if you know someone who is sick that they TAKE their medicene. That can change someones life for a lifetime.
