Donate to AIDS/LifeCycle online Register for AIDS/LifeCycle 7



About two and a half years ago during my last year in graduate school I decided to play around with crystal meth. I think we all know where this story goes and yes, I did live the stereotypical gay life for about 7 or 8 months after that experiment. My addiction quickly developed in which I dropped out of school, lost an apartment including all of my belongings and completely separated myself from my family. The only thing I was interested in doing was shooting up meth and hanging out with people who did the same. Needless to say, I contracted the HIV virus during this period of time. My family saved me though by forcing me into a rehab program that saved my life! Now that I have survived that ordeal, I recognize that it is time to give back to society in any way that I can. Riding in the AIDS/LifeCycle 6 event is allowing me to begin making up the damage I caused to society during my time as a drug addict.
