HIV/AIDS is a disease with stigma. Many have learnt this with experience. People for many reasons are sometimes hesitant to admit that this is a problem.
The stigma that comes with the disease is dangerous than HIV/AIDS, the reason why many people coil in their shells and fear to come out openly with their status.
“…..And when I started educating people on HIV, I encouraged others but always cried in silence after my talk….I maintained a smiling face so that most people with HIV will derive some strength from me. I have been admitted to the psychiatric hospital in Hamburg on 4 occasions. 2015, 2016, 2017, 2019 all in a psychiatric hospital for major depression.
“Due to my constant admission, my son Prince was taken away from me. But now I’m weak…Please be kind to my children when I’m no more. Do not treat them badly for my mistakes. God bless you all,” she wrote.
