"I finally decided that instead of dying from cancer or AIDS I am living with the situation, instead of dying from the situation. Is a pivotal point to one's life that you can change. And that's what made a big difference for me is I decided I was living with AIDS, and I really began living. I started doing what my doctor ordered followed through on all my medications start doing, being more active as much as I physically could, as far as some exercise, I did join a gym then and did my physical exercise in as much as possible. Just slowly but surely, over time started getting better."
