Yes, I'm gay. I probably was since the day I was born. On my 21st birthday, I sort of had my debut. I came out to my parents. A little drama from mom, and some indifference from dad. An above-average coming out. Almost perfect.

Nine years later, two weeks before my 30th birthday, I found out... I'M HIV POSITIVE.

And so my story begins... I'm BACK IN THE CLOSET.

A Normal Day?

It's been raining most of the day, and classes have been suspended around Manila. It's almost the end of the day, but we still haven't been let off from work.

Work? Yes! I am working today. It's my first day on ARVs and yes, I am still able to work, which is always a good thing.

I slept through my first set last night. No dreams, no nightmares. No fever, no rashes. Woke up my usual time, went through my usual routine, except of course for my new 9:30 habit.

So here I am, almost at the end of another work day. Been checking my arms regularly for signs of rashes, so far, so good. Looks like I'm surviving. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed.
