My 14th annHIVersary: a day for hope, not sadness

Saturday 2 January 2021 is my 14th annHIVersary — the day in 2007 I received my HIV-positive diagnosis.

It is certainly not a day for personal sadness. I think of it as a bittersweet anniversary: I’ve learned so much since that day — about the virus and treatment, as well as about myself and others.

I’ve met so many amazing and brilliant people who have helped me to believe that anything is possible, if you are organised and try hard enough.
