Thank you for reaching my blog.
I believe in Hope.
Don’t forget to share it around!
There came a point in my life after so many years of living unwell I reached out to get the help I knew I needed. To step out of living in fear and embrace that I needed help.
I’ve lived with HIV/AIDS for 33 years. I was diagnosed with Dissociative Identity Disorder, PTSD, Major Depression, Anxiety , Adjustment Disorder with Mood Disorder. I have made good progress. I lived with addiction to substances.
As an aging man over 50 I am able to say that I am healthy. It hasn’t come over night. It didn’t just happen. I have worked towards it. Good things can take time. My HIV drug treatment is working great, my immune system is improved, I am happy.
I am currently living in Tucson, Arizona. Love it. Good people who care. On April 4th I completed my training at NAMI Southern Arizona and have received my Peer Support Specialist certificate. I am looking forward to the road ahead.
I will present topics of interest on HIV/AIDS, Mental Illness, Substance Use.
I thank you for stopping in. Drop me a line to say G’day.
