I am an exmarine and have worked as an electrician, I was diagnosed with HIV in 2005 and was confirmed to have had AIDS. I was unaware and never tested so I have been living HIV positive for 16 years or so now. I was hospitalized in 2005 with crytococcal Menengis and came close to death...I felt myself slipping away which I can relate to drowning. It was by the grace of GOD I am here now 6 years later. I stopped working on the advice of my doctors but do not want to leave this world without doing all I can. I write and also paint which I put on Etsy as Davesrecoveryartwork. I enjoy painting and relish in the fact that I no longer look for peace or self worth through working as I used to I am at last at peace
