I wanted to write and acknowledge this past weekend’s retreat at Shallowford. This was my third retreat, since being diagnosed in May 2019.
Over the past two and a half years I have gone through many different emotions, learning how to accept and live with the diagnosis.
The retreats have supported me enormously and I have met some great people there and made some good friends.
I am not open with family and friends about living with hiv and the retreats provide an opportunity to speak openly and in a safe environment
