Loretta's surivor story

I am 28 years old I found out March 8, 2005 that I was HIV positive. I felt like my whole life has changed I had to learn how to live my life day by day with this disease. I learned how to cope with this I was only 24 1/2 years old when I found out that I was HIV positive. I had a son that I had to tell him that mom was sick with the HIV virus and I was going to get sicker as time goes on. That was the hardest thing for me to do was to tell my boy that mama was going to have to leave you one day soon. I love my son more then anything in this world he is my life, my world and my heart. I know that this has been very hard on my son to deal with and I think that he has handle it very well. I have trouble sometimes being able to handle the fact that I have HIV and the man that gave it to me did not seem to have a problem with it. It hurts me that someone can still come into someones life and can take there life and not even care what they are doing until it is to late. I feel that it is not fair to no one that should have a say so in the matter about their life. I still cry at night I wonder what I done to deserve to get HIV cause it seems like people don't mind giving it to innocent people. I suffer everyday with HIV and it hurts me at times to know that hey I do got it. Then at times I tell myself that I can use my story to help other people out there who has it or doesn't have it.

I was with a man for 5 years he never told me that he had HIV then when he got locked up a sheriff's officer. He came told me that the man had got tested and had HIV which was turning into full blown AIDS. I felt like I could take on the world at that time, I knew the family, they knew he had it so did he. I felt like they could have told me or he could have one but they just didn't tell me at all. Then I went to see him, wrote his family, I called him everything but a child of GOD. I as GOD to forgive me now because I have gave my life to GOD now for what I had said to him. He has gave me HIV now I have to learn how to live with it and deal with the life that I have left. I am going to live it to the fulliest the best way that I know how with all of my heart, body, soul and mind. I forgive him but I will never forget what he has done to me he has to answer for what he has done not me. I love life 350% I am going to make the best out of my life like I am doing now: writing poetry, stories, going to college and taalking to teens about teen pregnancy and HIV&AIDS. I am going to continue to do the work that I feel that I am needed to do to help out other people that are in need out here in this world before it is to late. I am sending this with alot of love, hugs and kisses!!!!!!!!!!!!
