I take my aging just as it comes!

Last updated: December 2022

I am a long-time HIV survivor diagnosed in 1997. I fell ill in 2006 with CD4 3, people said it was a miracle that I survived. Mind you, this happened one year after I traveled to the US; had this gotten me while living in my home country in Africa I would probably be dead. But only the Almighty God knows for sure.
I started my treatment (high quality) in the US until I was forced back home in 2018 to continue on a low-quality treatment.

Aging and in good shape

However, I am in good shape (aging normally) despite my comorbidities. Appearance talking, I am one of those guys that don't look HIV sickened. I look just like a "normal guy".
I am grateful to God.
