To survive May I've just started HELP ME WORLD campaign - my lifetime project: https://www.instagram.com/speakouthiv/ My family and relatives don't know I'm HIV+, only one friend and my beloved dog. To survive the next month, I decided to share with you all that I'm going through.
Now I need your financial support to pay off the loans for herbs and medicines because if I don't do it in the coming days, the debt collectors will knock on my door and I will be in court. Everyday I receive about 30 calls to pay off debts. I work all day 12h, but I'm losing my strength and I am begging you, help me.
I want to help others too by showing up my situation the best I can because living in secret with hiv is terrible. I've been cooperating with foundations and artists for 10 years, so my challenges with your support will be possible. I will be able not only to survive the next month, but also to make my dreams come true.
As part of the HELP ME WORLD project, I would like to create:
1. SOCIAL MEDIA (instagram, facebook, twitter) speakouthiv - Help me World. I will share with you:
- My knowledge and experience from recent years;
- Real stories how I've struggled in a secret with HIV;
- You will be constantly discovering how difficult it is in a small community to live with HIV;
- How to care about your health (physically and mentally) for the first two years;
- I'll provide you names of natural food products, herbs, plants, remedies, medicines;
- Natural therapies which holistically help to survive the most difficult period in life: sound, dog, tree therapies, meditation, exercises and many other ways of healing your soul and body;
- How to reorganize your life and find yourself in everyday situations;
- You'll see my road to publish the book and establish the foundation.
2. BOOK "Secret living with HIV"
- In 2020 I would like to publish a book that will be a summary of my life;
- I will send my book to everyone who will donate 100$;
- My book will be also the way to come out to my family, relatives and my city by handing over the book to them; it will be an extremely moving event and I would like to share with you the path to it and the final results;
- I wish I could present the history of the disease, the struggle with myself and reality;
- It will also be a detailed guide on how to cope naturally with HIV in the first years.
3. "ART" FOUNDATION
- At the latest in 2021, I would like to set up an "ART" foundation whose name comes from antiretroviral therapy;
- By combining art and educational activities, the Foundation would show the community what art is in itself the life of people with HIV;
- Research on new forms of holistic therapies using nature and technology;
- Psychological care of people infected with HIV and their relatives;
The first year of the disease was the most difficult of my whole life. Depression, low self-esteem and deep isolation from friends and relatives. If it were not for my beloved dog, I would probably be dead.
In the second year, I tried to take everything into my own hands, I devoted months to reading publications and the internet and I took the treatment myself in the form of herbs and natural medicines and therapies. I needed all the time and money for it, so I took a lot of loans, which I just have to pay back.
Now I feel worse, my muscles and joints ache more and more, my whole body is just burning me. I need your support to be able to get out of the financial and health hole.
