Ishmael Time

During 2002, HIV turned Ishmael into a weak, bedridden man. "I am a peer in the company, I tell others to be careful and to go for a test if they think they might be infected. But I just couldn't bring myself to do the same thing. I was too afraid. Until I had rash all over my body, lost weight and could no longer walk on my own. Some people told me I had already died."
