IT’S GOOD TO KNOW…


This past weekend Noel and I went to get tested for HIV/AIDS. Of course I felt that I had NOTHING to worry about but the wait time from taking the test and getting the results play on one’s psyche. So when our tests came back negative I was revealed to confirm what I knew AND felt in the depths of my soul. However SO many others out there that took their test this weekend, last weekend, two weeks before or when ever didn’t get the results that we got. So many of us are type that BELIEVES in being in relationships in order to feel free to experience sex in its REAL and TRUE form. However due to HIV/AIDS epidemic taking the LOVE juice of another is quite unsafe. I live AND love knowing that I am MORE than enough for Noel and he for me. So on this day I want CELEBRATE OUR LOVE as we along with rest of the world reflect on WORLD AIDS DAY. It brings tears to my eyes knowing that when I wake in the mornings that Noel is laying next to me. My soul dances with joy as think about the children we could father AND the ONLY protection we would need in OUR relationship is LOVE. Lord knows that I HATE this disease, I DETEST it with everything that makes me who I am. HIV/AIDS took the ONE thing that God gave us and try to make into something scary AND unsafe. No longer can we as people penetrate for the sake it, we have to have the kind of sex that penetrates our souls as well. It is my feeling that sex makes us beautiful and within this beauty we get to express the best form of humanity. We get to protect, hold AND keep each other…HIV/AIDS HAS TAINTED THE SPIRITUAL ESSENCE OF LOVE & IT HAS DEMORALIZE THE GENUINE MORALITY OF HUMANITY FOR TOO LONG NOW & IT IS UP TO US TO GET IT BACK. I KNOW THAT I CAN BREATHE, LIVE N’ LOVE BECAUSE I KNOW OUR STATUS…DO YOU KNOW YOURS?

  1. I love it when you say 'I live AND love knowing that I am more than enough for Noel and he for me'.

    I wish many of us could live by those words and for me that is where some of our problems start, we feel that what we have is never enough. We are constantly yearning and looking to be filled up and our desires satisfied.

    I feel that WE have turned sex into a monster and this monster has turned on us. I don't know if HIV/AIDS itself 'has taken what GOD gave us and turned it into something scary'.

    Are we not the masters of our own destiny? Do we not have dominion over the world? I feel that there is very little that happens in the world, good or bad, that is not the direct result of our own actions.

    But I love the way you think, that what you have is more that enough.

  3. Gayte,
    You know I'm new to your blog, so I don't think I knew of Noel and your relationship. I'm always happy to hear when brothers are willing to take that leap together! Congrats...both on your relationship and the good news of your status.
    I also loved the line:
    I live AND love knowing that I am more than enough for Noel and he for me.

    Beautiful....one day it will be my turn.

  6. I would like to thank everyone for their words of encouragement and support.We are touched and humbled that we have in some way inspired some of you by what we have and share.
    It is important that when you find that person who you wish to share your life with that you truly commit yourself and be open and honest in communicating with each other. It is this commitment and trust which calmed my nerves while waiting for our HIV results.
    On this World Aids day i implore each and every one ,to reflect on your life and sexual practices and get tested if you haven't done so yet. I am sure that each of us knows someone who has been afflicted by this disease and such ,we should make it our duty to be there for them and offer some support. The fight continues,so be an advocated in your own way,spread the word on safe sex and being responsible.WE all have a responsibility to fight HIV/AIDS.BE SAFE and be wise!!!!!!!!

  7. Please everyone get tested, it takes 1 time! Sometimes HIV takes up to 3-4 months to show up, so get tested again every few months.

  9. I agree. HIV has made some people afraid, scared, petrified to love in full.

    HIV has made others love harder, deeper, wider, better, more immediate, more patiently, more intensely, more spiritually, and w/ their WHOLE heart.

    The message of this blog was & is very necessary.

    Bravo to you!

    One.
