Ghana’s former HIV/AIDS ambassador, Joyce Dzidzor Mensah has made a sad statement about how she has been rejected over the years.
Due to stigmatization, Joyce in a post seen by Newshuntermag.com said she lied about her HIV status.
Having been in denial of her status for many years, she disclosed her readiness to face the whole world over rejection.
Joyce Dzidzor Mensah stressed how much HIV has caused her.
She lamented that there is no love in this world.
“I have been in denial of my status for many years because HIV has caused me so much pain and rejection. I have lied to almost everyone around me just to enjoy a bit of acceptance in society. My denial was so much that my pregnancy book in Germany which contains my HIV status, I threw it away.
“I starting tearing every document of mine that contains my HIV status… And if you ask me a million times about my HIV status, I will tell you I’m negative. But in all this, I have protected everyone around me not to get infected. All my four children are negative as well…,” she said.
Joyce Mensah added: “My current landlord in Germany has become my Facebook follower because she likes my videos. They have asked me of my HIV status because they read it online…few weeks ago, I told them i was negative…But now if they are reading this, they will know the truth now and if they also want to throw me out of my apartment, I will pack my things and leave.
“I am fully ready to face the rejection from the whole world and even if my soul want to reject me, i will take my things and go out of my soul…There’s no love in the world.”
