Why am I still here
Last updated: March 2023
My name is Jonathan I'm 53 years old I was diagnosed with HIV in 1998.
After HIV diagnosis
I was incarcerated when I found out. I was upset, I thought that no one would ever want to have sex with me or even date me. I started hanging with the wrong people, I started using drugs to deal with my situation.
I'm still here
Well it's now 2022 and I'm still here. My cells are at 850 and I'm undetectable. I'm married, we just celebrated our 8 years of marriage. Well, that's me in a nutshell.
