"I just pray that I make it until he is a teenager. I'd like to die knowing that they can take care of themselves." That is something my mom says to herself everyday of her life as she awaken from bed. My mom is HIV positive she been this way for 14years now. It hurts me a lot to know that she is living with so much suffer inside. People living with HIV may look normal on the outside but they are really dieing on the inside. She got it from my father but she did not know he had it in 1995. I found out my mother had HIV when I was 10 years old every since then I would cry to myself asking myself all kind of questions like "Is she going to leave us?" "Where are we going to go?"
This is not the main reason I am writing this document I am writing this to connect to kids out there living with not only mothers but also fathers or who ever you care about that are HIV positive and see them suffer everyday of there lives because of it. We may not be able to know exactly how they feel but we have some type of feeling for them just watching what they go through. If we meantion this more and put this out there it may help them a little because people living HIV positive will know that even people without it knows how they feel and want to help and hoping for a cure.
