After taking two weeks to recoup from my coast to coast journey, I finally started the writing process for my book. This is very exciting step but also a long journey. This morning, as I was writing the elements of the first chapter, so many emotions resurfaced. The first chapter begins with my doctor telling me “I have some good news and some bad news.” I felt like I was back in 2003 and reliving this experience again. I really did not expect all those feelings and emotions to resurface, but they did.
This book will be a labor of love and will reveal so much about me and my life. I am reminded often that my story is relevant and important to share. There aren’t many Black men who have shared their story of living with HIV. I am writing this book for those of living with HIV; for those with family and friends living with HIV; and for folx to have a better understanding of the day-to-day challenges of living with HIV.
