|"If you look at the world's top 50 drugs being sold today, they are being marketed and sold by companies that did not invent them. I respect patents. I'll pay a royalty. But I shouldn't be denied the right to produce drugs for poor people at reasonable prices."|
I mean no harm to anyone but I definitely mean health to me and it feels like the more I talk, the more people have my business, and the higher the chance of them telling it. Honestly, they don't know what it's like to walk around with a disease that you did nothing to deserve. A life-threatening disease that people will treat you horribly and talk about you viciously for having, regardless of how you got it. I mean, if it came down to it, I could handle myself if the word got out to everyone that I am positive. But who the hell would want to live like that?! Definitely not me. And definitely not my the loose lips of my family or friends. They don't understand that though. They want you to be strong, courageous, and an example for others because it's not them who has to deal with the repercussions. Some people can't hold water because it isn't their's to drink. And I find that to be very disrespectful when others share my medical condition. Why is that even necessary? That is my business to tell. The more people who know my business equals the less chance I have to a normal life. Normalcy feels like a distant dream at this point.
