Positive Living – Lydia’s Journey

Lost Hope

Looking at me now, would you believe that in 2007 I was bedridden. I weighed 43 kilograms and my CD4 count was 131. Back then, I thought this is it, the end. I gave away my possessions to anyone who came to visit. I would not be needing those where I was going. I had lost all hope.

However, I was lucky my parents did not give up on me. They helped me to enrol in a treatment programme at Epworth Clinic, where I reacted well to the medication and started getting better. I also joined a support group that helped me accept my HIV positive status and taught me how to live positively. The support I received proved invaluable when my husband died. He had denied his status for too long and by the time he wanted to start treatment it was too late: his body could not cope.
