(And there lays the biggest problem for me; the criminalization of a medical condition.) Whether the STD is Herpes or HIV, the law requires disclosure.
It has really helped with my winter cough, congestion related to this bout of pneumonia. The fiction of this period was powerful and empowering all at the same time.
It’s the one thing that belongs to me that AIDS cannot take away from me.It gave me purpose for my own life and the courage to fight the good fight and never surrender. Something intoxicating about the smell of the book and the story it brings to life.Reading brings me joy, and these days with my health in the balance, I find solace in my books.The RLTReads book club will be books that I choose.It’s me sharing a part of me with you that has nothing to do with AIDS.
