I am 28. White. A Female. And a former Peace Corps Volunteer. I am HIV Positive. This is my story of how a few months, a few people, and a few events in Zambia changed me and my life forever. This is the story of how I contracted HIV and brought my Peace Corps Journey to a crashing halt... and how I am working now to pick up and put back together the pieces of my life as a newly diagnosed person living with HIV. This was not the journey I had originally planned... my path has traumatically and dramatically changed... but it is the one I am on now. There is no going back. There is only forward. I welcome you to follow along with me as I attempt to explore this new life ahead of me, whether you are someone from the Peace Corps community, or someone living with HIV. I welcome your comments, questions, suggestions, and opinions. Let us go forward together. To start from the beginning, click here He Gave Me More Than A Bracelet.

Poll Results: Did you receive HIV/AIDS Education in school?

A total of 125 voters responded to the question: Did you receive HIV/AIDS Education in school?
17 (13%): Yes, extensive.
79 (63%): Yes, some.
16 (12%): No.
13 (10%): No (I'm too old).
Thanks for responses! I'm glad to know that most voters received at least some HIV/AIDS Education in school :-)
I'm running low on poll questions. Anyone have any ideas?

  1. Your polls are brilliant. I would be interested in knowing if parents talk to their kids about HIV, and how open there are about safe sex. I know that my parents talking to me very openly about condoms and safe sex (drilled it into me before I came out, even more sow after). But I know a lot of people who say their parents never talked to them and let public education do their job on informing their kids of risks.
