Anthony Johnson is a community advocate, a volunteer with a number of organizations, creator and organizer of an HIV social/support group, and 18 year survivor of HIV.  A few years ago I was ready to end my life because of the health issues I was facing and the isolation I was dealing with. I have fought that and am now in the best health I have ever been in (physically, emotionally, and spiritually). One of the things I have done is to publicize my life living with HIV and the obstacles I have overcome though different local and national campaigns and media interviews. The reason for this is to reduce stigma associated with HIV/AIDS and help people understand that though this is now a manageable disease in many ways, there are still issues that many of us face. We should not live in fear and shame for having a very HUMAN condition. I am also a fulltime student earning a bachelor’s degree in psychology and only have a few more weeks to go. I am excited because I know that the next part of my journey will be just as AMAZING as the last.
