This picture was taken in my office at the ASO I work at as the Public Policy Director. I just had my breakfast and took my meds and am now ready to start with my day. This is my daily routine, and as a long-term survivor of HIV, I find it easier to try to be consistent in my routine. That is not always possible, but taking my meds at the same time every day, and having my mealtimes during the day and especially getting to bed at the same time every night helps me stay healthy and productive.

On my way to Den Haag [The Hague] to get my visa so that I can travel to Burundi, where I will provide HIV education to the indigenous Batwa people. #adaywithhiv reminds me how lucky I am to have access to medication that has allowed me to still alive! There are still people in the world who die because they lack medication or even the information they need to live. On this day, I am thinking of them all.

Living with AIDS since 2004. I was diagnosed in Belize, but had to move back for quality of meds and medical care. I'm a mother of three and grandmother of 9.9 grandchildren—the tenth is due this week. I dream of moving home to Belize to educate and peer mentor my fellow Belizeans.

I am enjoying the beautiful nature that I've been given. I'm mixing this visual enjoyment with physical exercise. Just as I snapped this photograph, a large bird lit next to me, as if he/she was also enjoying the scenery. Self-care and exercise are things that are important to me; they provide both mental and physical releases. It's vital that I don't allow HIV to get in the way of my enjoyment of beauty and life.

With the love of my life, Fronsie. As a 22-year long-term survivor, I have no partner. In the early days of AIDS, we were told that dogs were deadly for us and to get rid of them. Fronsie, my 'pitbull x bull-terrier', is my angel who lives every minute of every day with me, she is my saviour —without her unquestioned love and devotion I would not survive. I'm one of the 5% of people who suffer very badly from ART, but she doesn't mind the terrible side-effects that I have to live with.

I took this picture in my office. Though I'm not living with HIV. I can directly relate because this is my community and a day has never gone by that I haven't fought for my brother, sisters, and non gender conforming person that are living with HIV. This is our movement and this is our liberation!

After a long counseling session with a client, the day is finally over. Living with HIV does not stop with your diagnosis, especially if you want to make a difference, like helping at a treatment facility. Give hope to those who are newly diagnosed. #HIVandAIDSstigmaSTOPSfromME
