Wanted: A Buddy Who Has My Back

Living with HIV/AIDS for 25 years and counting has taught me many things, none more important than the following:

The people who matter in your life are the people who care whether or not you're alive or dead, and if you're not feeling well, whether or not there's anything they can do to help you feel better.

That's it. Who else matters and why should they?

If a person doesn't give a hoot about your survival, they ain't the person for you. Simple as that. That's why I'm hoping to find a buddy who has my back.

Any buddy out there?
