    This was in every way, inspiring!
    Takes a lot of courage to pen this down, and also shows how far you have come from where you started… your write up forced a comment from me!
    Keep living happily.

    As a HIV positive guy myself, I laud this. Thank you, Benjamin for this. I’ll bookmark this for future reading whenever I’m feeling down and low.

    Benjamin, have you opened up about your status to any member of your family? Your sister perhaps?

    This piece is the true meaning of inspiration. Thanks for sharing your story, Benjamin. This story can be applied to other challenges in life. Notwithstanding the depression of the darkest moments in our lives, we must always focus to see the light.

    Thanks for sharing your story man. I’m really happy for you and glad that God sent that little boy your way to inspire you.

    I tend to use well adjusted positive kids/teenagers to get adults to behave and take their medication serious

    Very wonderful write up…. Very inspiring and surreal. We in Health care, still needs alot of capacity building. Patients handling is very poor especially in our General Hospitals.

    If this is a true story ..I can’t just believe a nurse will annouce someone’s status in public…

    Congratulations on finding the strength to LIVE positively! It is gross professional misconduct for your caregiver (Nurse, Medical Lab. Scientist or Dr) to disclose your medical information to third party without your consent (not to mention publicly). Anyone who experiences this (I hope not) must as a matter of obligation make sure the staff is punished (a petition to the Professional disciplinary committee or employer may suffice). This is necessary to protect future unsuspecting victims. You have my best wishes! Thanks for sharing!

    Please sue the Nurse. As an health personnel myself, we are under oath never to do what she did. I’m guessing she’s not a professional nurse, maybe a drop out trained locally.
