For 12 years I've bee going to a camp for kids with HIV. But not this year. This years staff has a new sheriff in town, and with her a deadline is a deadline even if you set it so early lots of people don't have the their vacation confirmed yet.
To be fair, you now, vertical transmission is down, + school age kids are fewer and we have a shrinking population so they had enough volunteers they didn't have to wait for me, that's a good problem to have.
but I'm hanging out on Facebook and email and seeing joyful kids that I've worked with for a decade, and I'm blue.
