Happy Birthday x2 Me

(Left) Age 11. Diagnosed with #HIV. Prognosis? 6 months to 2 years to live…

Nah, let’s double that age instead.

(Middle) Age 22. Prognosis? Roughly a decade or so.

Nah, let’s double up again!

(Right) Today. Age 44. Prognosis?

A normal lifespan.

Happy birthday? You bet. Here’s to turning 88 if the fates allow it. I’m not greedy, though, and am very thankful for every year I’ve been able to enjoy.

Positively Yours,
