Eighteen years ago, I was working in a laboratory, and it was in that very place that I tested myself for HIV. The result was positive.
I get by financially by helping high school and university students with their homework. Some time later in Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, the drug gang Los Zetas kidnapped one of my brothers. My family asked me to go and negotiate with them. I didn't know what to do, I was very much afraid. Finally they released him and when I came back I learned that they all had agreed to send me, since nobody else wanted to take the risk. At any rate, they gathered that I was doomed to die soon.
All these years of living with the virus have taught me to become more mature and to work on my feelings. Among my future plans, I want to enter the university, study chemistry and then teach."
How courageous is Ramon? Best of luck in your life!
