An Open Letter to Women Living With HIV - Be Informed and Take Charge of Your Health

BlogHer Network
This is an expansion of very short letter I wrote on a blog to a young lady living with HIV who contracted the disease when she was raped by two strangers at the market.This vulnerable young woman has recently been raped again by a friend, and then taken advantage of by someone in position of power. She believes she has infected them with the virus and is not very remorseful.To this young lady I wrote this open letter, and to other women living with HIV who feel vulnerable and yet think like they have an edge to get back at men whom they hate.I may not fully understand your life since I don't have HIV, but I can imagine that if someone harms me, I may feel good if I think I got my revenge on them in my own way.BUT! And this is a big but, with HIV, going on a spree to infect others may actually backfire for a woman!You are exposing yourself to other strains of HIV by having sex with men and not using condoms. . . .
