My name is Susan.
I am 45 years old. I come from Uganda east Africa. I live in Munich for six
I was diognised in August 2008.
It was a schock to me when I received my results as I was HIV positive! I developed a lot of fear and I had so many questions. It was such a trying time when my family and a few of my friends got to know about it and this worried me the more. Later in this state of confusion I got a chance to counseling and there I was told that I can actually live on with the HIV medication available.
I got encouraged to know that I could actually live on even to old age. More than 10 years have passed since then and HIV is now part of my life.
I am a calm and understanding person. I also work at Münchner Aidshilfe. My experience living in Munich as a foreign person was at first challenging
but eventually one gets on fine.
I am fluent in English, I can help you in Swahilli and also in Germany language.
We can meet in a place where you feel comfortable to listen and share with you.
I would be happy to assist you as a buddy if you needed me.
See you then.
