I don’t know what came to me. But when I got home from work this evening, I had the guts told my sister about my ordeal. I broke up in tears while uttering the words “Martha (not her real name), I am HIV positive”. That was the first time cried about me having the disease. She cried terribly and we hugged each other in Silence.
My sister will be going back to the US in a few weeks. She asked me when I’m going to tell our parents. She told be that she can’t carry the burden of being the only one in the family who knows about the status of my health. She threatened me that she will not leave until I tell my parents. I assured that I am healthy and I promised her that I will tell our parents about it as soon as possible once I’m ready.
I also made a promise to her that I’d take care of my health — that I’ll be around for a few decades more.
