WORLD TODAY MEN
Chance would have it reach the number 50 OlePlusMen a special date such as June 5, 2011.
Exactly 30 years ago …….
on June 5th 1981, an article was published for the Center for Disease Control’s “Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report:, the topic of that article was about a group of 5 young men who where developing a class of pneumonia , known today as Pneumocystis Carinii, theses cases being reported in both San Francisco and New york, through the months following the published report, more case surfaced. Cases showing the same symptoms, however with different illness, those illnesses included Kaposi’s Sarcoma, Lymphoma and Squamous Cell Carcinoma. The out poring of cases had become overwhelming. All those different names, all the cases, but up until then, there was one similarity among the cases, Young GAY Men; The doctors and CDC being stumped on how to address these classifications of illness., or even where to begin to name it allowed the media and society to open a Pandora’s Box of emotion and fear. By the end of 1981 the media had taken wind of the conditions occurring, at this point in history the only one similarity between all these cases where young gay men. 30 years ago we saw the 1st name for the condition associated with the illness G.R.I.D. or (Gay-Related Immune Deficiency), and the stigma was Born, on what we know 30 years latter as AIDS.
Flash forward to June 5th 2011, as we look back on the date in which started it all, the fear, the stigma, the hate, and the Deaths, to many we have come such a long way, in terms of now defining HIV/AIDS as a chronic Illness rather than a death sentence. In 2006 ATRIPLA gave way to become the now known 1-pill a day, or to many the ONE pill of HOPE. The death rates of HIV/AIDS today have declined drastically, however the infection rates continue to shore.
I, along with the rest of the global population are people Affected (not infected). Our heart will always remain with those who lost their lives, and those who lost a friend, or family member. Our heart is with everyone, but there is a special place reserved in our heart for those who feel they are in this battle alone.
Let us be HIV negative but Positive in HOPE, Positive in LOVE, and Positive in COMPASSION for each and every single person Infected as well as affected .
“HIV/AIDS today is a preventable, a Treatable Disease, Treatment is available. Safe Sex is the key statement to say, however the real solution and real prevention is in the Education of HIV/AIDS, Knowledge is power, and Knowing if you’re Positive or Negative is crucial! Know your stats always! And more importantly always communicate and Convey messages of your stats, Messages of Hope and above all Messages of LOVE! For you never know what life will bring, infected or affected. Who ever is reading this now always remember Wear a Condom, Communicate with your partner, and for those struggling with there Positive diagnosis always remember YOU HAVE IT, IT DOES NOT HAVE YOU! With all my love, this is for all of “WORLD” AFFECTED and for those INFECTHED by HIV/AIDS”
-30 years and counting, Hope and Love Cures all!
