Well, my HIV tests came back negative. It was such a huge relief. I was imagining death sitting next to me all the time. To those who had me in their thoughts, THANK YOU !!!!!!!
I got a new client a couple of weeks ago. He was hit by a drunk driver when he was around 15. He is I think she said 28 now. He has traumatic brain injury (TBI) and the dr’s had to remove parts of his brain. He is in a vegetative state I think that’s the term. He lives at home with him mom who takes care of him. His mom belongs to a support group and my name was mentioned to her and well, I got me a new client. I help her bathe him, move him, a couple of times, I even stayed with him while she took a few hours to herself. This woman, I love her so much. She has become like my mom, my dream mom. She talks with me, confides in me, shares her life with me. I found that I am doing the same, and neither of us judge the other, we are supportive and caring. He is sweet, even though the Dr said there is no real sensation or language, when he hears my voice, he gets a small smile. His body still works like that of a typical guy, just no real body, like legs and arms, movement, but yet he still responds.
His father left when my client was around 17 or 18. Said he couldn’t stand seeing his son like that, saying he should be dead. No wonder I hate most guys. They will find any excuse to run from their responsibility.
This is my second special needs client. I know this is weird to most people, but I find them to be my most satisfying clients, the ones I look forward to seeing the most. The money may not be the greatest, but seeing that joy, that genuine happiness seeing me, what more could I want.

    Thank you, I never realized how much it affected me until recently. I kinda had a melt down, spent like a week crying. Definite delayed reaction.

    Here in Kenya/Africa,stigma is hits us big.lt has led to many of us who are positive to being some kind of introverts.
