#HerStory: Happy birthday @myfabredlife‼️Your bravery in living your truth and sharing your story is commendable. Thank you 😘❤️❤️❤️ ————————————————————————- “When life plants lemon trees in your yard and you were anticipating peaches, how does one manage to not make a drink out of life that wouldn't have a person remain so sour? Almost twelve years ago, after being in a monogamous relationship, I learned that I not only was HIV positive, but it was now full blown AIDS! As a woman, I never took the time to get tested. Not once did I think enough of myself to sit down with the man I let penetrate me raw, and ask where he stood in terms of his sexual health. By the time, the ambulance was rushing me to a hospital in Houston, TX all of the shoulda, coulda, wouldas were too late. I passed out in the shower, and was hooked up to a breathing machine with only two t-cells. After being in the hospital for a month, losing feeling in my legs and my muscle mass deteriorating, I kept thinking to myself "this WILL NOT be it for me"! I knew in my head that the world and my peers would view me differently but in that moment I DID NOT CARE! The only thing that crossed my mind while spending my last day in the hospital was, ‘I will do everything in my power to save the next sister and protect her self love.’ Although I didn't speak of my virus for almost two years to friends and family, I knew I had to do that to build my self worth and learn to except what was. The world had a blurred misconception of HIV/AIDS and I knew the battle ahead I had in front of me with deciding to share my truth with the world, with using the entertainment industry as my stage to do so. After talking with God and asking him to cover me, I immediately began to speak my truth wherever the spirit would call me to do so. Whether it were colleges, universities, or music conferences, I made it my business to use it all as my platform. I had to create my own rules for the calling that God had on my life because I knew the "PC" approach of doing it wasn't going to work. I have never feared speaking my truth, because honey...ITS MINE! (Continue in comments) 18 ♡ 2 ✍ March 19
