Have you ever had a moment when you heard someone’s story about living with HIV and it brought tears to your eyes? Did you learn something? Did you feel you could relate to what they said, or did it make you realise something marvellous about yourself? Did you feel connected, that someone understands, or that you are a great and strong person?
That’s the power of a personal story. It touches people’s lives and makes you feel you’re not alone. Stories heal, they teach and they touch hearts. And we all have a story to tell. No matter how boring you think your story is, it will be interesting to someone.
We’d like to hear how you live your life with HIV. Be anonymous, make up a new name and change the town or the people. But don’t forget that you matter and you can make a difference.
We would love to share your story on this website. You can write as much or little as you like; it may be a paragraph but you may find you have a book in you!
If you don’t like writing, Pozhet staff can meet with you to help. We can even organise a professional audio recording (‘podcast’).
Send us your story or point of view.
All stories will be kept in absolute confidence. We will only ever use your story with your permission and we will conceal identities.
