Justin's HIV Journal A Mother's Love for her HIV + son


Sometimes I get personal e-mails about my blog and I haven't really shared them with you all. But I think I will start to do so, but of course changing the names so that I protect people's identities. I received this e-mail from a woman I'm going to call Amanda. She and her son discovered he was HIV+ and this letter made me cry.......twice.

"Dear Justin,

I have spent the last two hours listening to your YouTube blog. I just want to tell you how much of a blessing your words have been. My son (______) and I learned two weeks ago that he has HIV. Life has been a roller coaster since then, as you well know. We have seen so many doctors and specialist that my head and his is spinning. He is so sick right now that he can't see this disease as anything but a death sentence. He had outpatient surgery Thursday for an infection related to the disease, and his plans to start school on Tuesday have had to be put off. Right now, he is feeling pretty hopeless. Right now, he doesn't want anyone but me and his step-dad to know about his diagnosis. I see his daily depression getting worse and worse. I mentioned he might consider therapy when he feels better, but he worries that he will run into someone he knows. I know I can't be his sole support. I feel like I would like to find support, but I wouldn't want to "Out" him in any way. He has had more confusion and angst about admitting he is gay than I did in telling people my son was gay. It is not my secret to tell, but I pray he can someday feel confident enough to share what he is going through. Meanwhile, I want to do what I can with my limited knowledge. So, in my effort to see what was out there, I started Googling, "living with HIV," your videos came up on the screen. I was terrified that your story would be a story of hopelessness. How amazing was it to find that your message was that of hope.

I plan to share your videos with my son, ______. I hope they will inspire him the way they inspired me. I read somewhere that there were people who sent you ugly emails and you considered stopping. I hope you don't. Because your videos were there, you helped a frightened mom see that HIV does not mean the end. I can now say to my son without hesitation, "See, Justin is out there living and loving. He's fighting HIV and he is WINNING!" Thank you so much for telling your story and thank you for being a living testament to Moms and young men who are new to this fight. Today, you were my Moses leading me out of the darkness. Be blessed, Justin.

Best always,
Amanda"

This was so moving to me...
To her son I say Don't Give Up stay in the game. You mother is trying and she loves you very much. Be gentle with her you will need her and she will need you stay strong.

So the question is, can someone like "Dr" Peter Mc Hendry really be doing anything good for AIDS Victims in Africa?

He stole time and labour from Villagers in Zambia by pretending to empower them, the worst thing about this is his target this time is not rich white people who can afford to be scammed, no matter how unpleasant the reality.

By selecting poor African people with a terminal illness there can be no comeback as ultimately and AIDS victim that has been conned will die and cannot complain about the con...

If you are approached for an investment into Biofuel Feedstock, Property or this AIDS Cure by "Dr" Peter McHendry be very very careful before handing over your cash!

Hi a great read!

Peter McHendry has hundreds of splogs over the internet spouting his lies.

Here is a link to the TERMINATION OF PETER MC HENDRYS DIRECTORSHIP OF ANGLO AFRICAN FARMS - FOR THEFT OF INVESTORS MONEY

http://www.cdrex.com/anglo-african-farms-limited/board-397081.html

Sort of disproves any of McHendry's lies about him cancelling a business arrangement!

I see that you have found the link to "Dr" Peter McHendry's arrest in Florida for assault and serious aggrovated battery on a female

http://florida.arrests.org/Arrests/Peter_Mchendry_1485135

And I also see "Dr" Peter Mc Hendry telling lies and saying it is nonsence (more like NONCE-SENSE from Peter Mchendry:)

Peter McHendry's arrest in Florida was covered by 2 newspapers

The Beaches Leader

ufdc.ufl.edu/UF00076078/00007

and

Pone Verde Leader

http://ufdc.ufl.edu/UF00076081/00007

These articles confirm that Peter McHendry was arrested for violent crimes against women in America!

Peter McHendry is a very dirty individual, he has no conceptualization of any form of truth external to whatever he has made up.

This is sociopathic, hitting women is very wrong and an example of sociopathic behavior.

As is constantly lying to the point of being delusional.

Peter McHendry does not own property in America, he owes money on things but does not own anything of real value.
