Wrap it up
Anyone who knows me knows that I am a professional therapeutic massage therapist. During my career, I have had the pleasure of volunteering my time for many worthwhile events such as sports massage for mental health events, health fairs, and even events for the spouses of deployed men in the Air Force. Nothing I have ever done was a rewarding as the event that I did this weekend.
My friend and I (both CMTs) volunteered our time and talent for Rejuvenate 2005 an event to help HIV+ women with education fun, and just a great time. There were helpful things like healthy living information, bead jewelry, and childcare too.
It was wonderful to give the gift of touch to a group of women who may not have a lot of touch in their lives.
I saw all types of women there. I saw young women, old women heavy women, thin women, women with diamonds on their wrists and women who had to walk to the event.
I have heard for years that HIV can get anyone, but to see a group that has it puts it in prospective and in your face.
Please take care of yourself and protect yourself. I am not saying don’t have fun, but even the crazy people on the X games wear helmets.
