Climb Over that Wall

Before 2010, I was just a regular gay guy who thought was living his life in Manila, Philippines.

In January of this year, I was diagnosed to be HIV+. It was a tough four months of hiding, escaping, hurting, forgetting, laughing, loving and living.

XUANYA is Chinese for CLIFF - I once heard from a wise man, that when you are pushed off the cliff, you either fall or you fly.

This is my account of climbing up the wall and seeing another road, when I thought it was already a dead end.

  2. We all have choices, lots of it... In living this life as HIV+s. Some stopped living the day they were diagnosed; they are like zombies just existing from day to day, others live in hate, others live in fear, others live in the dark, I chose to be alive.

    I want to do a lot more things, I still have dreams to fulfill, and wounds to heal... Those are what drives me to exert efforts to live longer, to stay alive.

    I have never appreciated life as before, now that I am HIV+ and I know my life on this world is consciously shorter than most people. I embrace being alive.

  3. Canonista, Yep. Appreciate the small things. Hang in there!

  4. Hey... i sent you an email :) Stay strong X!

  5. Trese, Thanks for the email. It made my day.

  6. I agree with Canonista... we still have a life to live and its up to us on how we are going to live it...
