Five years ago, Cassie Louis contracted HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Louis echoes the notion that the disease has been destroying so many lives, including hers. As a “long-term survivor,” she empathizes with the people who are still combating the sickness and wishes to reach out to them through “Just When I Thought My Life Was Over ‘But God!’” (published by Xlibris).
In her book, she retells the “enduring times” when living with the disease was a struggle in every area of her life and within herself in every way. But positivity and her faith in God helped her overcome and “be free” from the illness. “I want to reach out to them by stating to them in words which is by my book that there is still life to live although they feel as if they have died within themselves,” says Louis.
Sharing her story is also Louis’ way of addressing the perception of societal stigma and discrimination towards people living with HIV/AIDS. “I want others to know from my experience that although someone may be HIV-positive that it doesn’t mean that their life is over, neither does it mean that it is a death sentence. It’s is most certainly not your last breath. I want others to witness that I am indeed a living testimony and as well a living witness to the world. Simply and all because I knew and I believed that I could still live and that I would live.”
The book is simply a heart-to-heart talk between an “over comer” and the “still struggling,” in hopes to lighten the burden brought by the disease.
