Positive Stories

Here are three stories of people living with HIV:

"Hi I’m positive. Twenty three years ago my child was born without my health condition. This year I’m looking forward to them graduating university. When I was diagnosed twenty-five years ago it was expected that neither of us would see this day."

"Hi I’m positive. I love my job looking after older adults. I’ve been nominated for awards for it. I’m well liked and respected by my colleagues. They don’t know about my health condition."

"Hi I’m positive. This year I turned thirty and excited about my book being published. This is a biography of my twenty-eight years diagnosed and living with my health condition."
