Acquired HIV late 2008. Diagnosed early 2009.
At the time didn't care about what happened, after years of being
clobbered by circumstances of life.
Collapsed mentally over a 9 month period in 2009 after HIV diagnosis,
became intensely suicidal for 6 months of that. Diagnosed with Post
Traumatic Stress. Acute kidney failure beginning of 2011 resulting in
near death and some brain injury from lack of oxygen. Now chronic kidney
failure being monitored. Have had to end work because of
fatigue and depression.
Today have made slow but difficult progress in recovering from
depression. In recovery am rediscovering some interests, such as
politics and books. Life does go on it seems.(email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
