“I would tell someone going through HIV that everything’s going to be fine. This is not a death sentence anymore. HIV is completely manageable, don’t get down on yourself. I hope that someday people feel the same way about HIV as they do with cancer. When someone gets cancer people feel sorry for them. There’s a lot of stigmas with HIV and you have to look past it - because people are always going to have stigmas about stuff. Just knowing that there are programs out there like UNIFIED in a person’s community can educate you and help you through this. You have no reduction in your life expectancy as long as you get treatment.” (4/4)
