A Girl Like Me (AGLM) is a program of The Well Project and is an online “blog” where women of all ages can share their stories and promote understanding of HIV through online storytelling. There are millions of women around the globe who are living with HIV and AIDS, yet many feel they are alone in their disease and isolated in the experiences they go through each day. The goals of AGLM are to help normalize HIV and AIDS in women and girls, and create a safe space for women living with HIV from around the world to speak out and share their experience of what it is to live life with HIV.

Reflecting

I see, I was offered a place to stay to get things going in a favorable direction. 

After some time of living under the same roof and eating out often together, Sex came into play. At that moment I was confronted with the real life struggle of Stigma as I know and...

Intro - Xio Mora-Lopez

In 1990, I was training to be a medical technologist, responsible for everything from drawing blood samples and testing samples to preparing blood transfusions. I learned about HIV, methods of transmission and personal safety in dealing with any patient who could be a potential for infection. I thought I would be safe....

America First

"He tried to erase me in one fell swoop. Make my existence not even worthy of a footnote or postscript." These are the words I wanted to scream as I searched the White House page on Friday, January 20, 2017 after hearing the refrain, "America First" but thought but he must not...

HIV and The Silent Killer

Yesterday I found out someone I knew who was HIV positive committed suicide. You see HIV not only tries to destroy the body but it tries to destroy the mind and its emotional stability!!! This is why many of us who are positive take meds for depression, anxiety and panic attacks. Many...

How Can I Not Speak?

What more can I say? When I step into the room, I hear the whispers. I hope she is not going to talk about HIV/AIDS or ask me if I’ve been tested! I just ignore them and know in my heart… they have no idea that one day…one day they are going...

05.10.2016: The day I drugged myself to sleep
Last night was my 6th day into my treatment and I must say, so far so good. I tried to outsmart my medication last night and took it a few minutes before jumping into bed. I’m not really sure what I was hoping would happen but I missed being drowsy last night, and woke up feeling very drowsy and tipsy and...

Intro - Janelle Luster

Hey everyone, HAPPY NEW YEAR… I’m Janelle Luster born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, 24 years old, I was diagnosed in March of 2012. At the time that I was diagnosed my house caught fire (my closet at that) and I didn’t have a regular job, no money saved....

Look At Me

Being an activist I know is one way to really stir things up and get things done. I was so happy when I was surrounded by my many sisters at The Summit in Fort Walton Beach this year. I felt unstoppable! When I arrived home I was excited to get to work....
