My Personal Destiny

I am a woman from Germany. I was diagnosed with HIV in 1992 in Berlin. I met my husband in 1998 and moved to Amsterdam to be with him. Our journey took us to Belfast, Scotland and Germany. Where ever we lived I received excellent treatment and my viral load is undetectable and I am in good health.

A 23 year marraige

My husband never got himself tested and we never wasted much time on my diagnosis. We always lived our life to the fullest and I am very grateful for that. Last November my husband of 23 years passed away from pancreatic cancer. Life is a journey and everyone has to carry their own burden. Please live your life like there is no tomorrow.
