HIV Positive, Living With AIDS

"In the midst of what seemed like chaos to me, there emerged some people who were living with, not dying of, AIDS. Their lives focused on surviving, growing and beginning, not deteriorating, fading and ending.

Instead of sitting in the darkness, they were walking in the light. I have learned much from these people, and I have included many of their words in this book . . ."
