The following New Year's Eve I ended up in hospital and that was how the next year started: I had such horrendous anxiety I stopped eating, slept more and more and didn't like going anywhere. After feeling so ill, I then got help - thanks to the support centre I went to.
The anxiety that I suffered was horrible but I was diagnosed with General Anxiety Disorder and prescribed the correct medication, I also attended an eating disorder clinic. Things are completely different now after I've found support from the women's group 'Poz Fem' and this support has helped me learn to live with HIV.
I am studying for a degree and am now working full time as a support worker at the local centre that helped me through my journey. I love my job and hope that as a seropositive woman I can support and help others through their journey."
