Get tested

I am not going to write a long post today. My thought for the day is that you get your health in order. It is time to know what is going on in your body. In these pictures, I am getting tested for HIV, blood glucose, cholesterol, and a variety of other conditions. I also got an Pap smear done yesterday. I got a mammogram last week. It is time for us to come out of the shadows. We need to take ownership of our bodies. Recover and live.

blood draw from my leg


  1. hi great posts past few days! do you regularly get tested for hiv?

    1. I get tested for HIV, get my liver checked, cholesterol glucose and get tested for anemia every six months

  2. is that just a precaution as i assume your not exposed to it anymore? just wondering as id like to go more but get very anxious about it.

  3. I'm not at risk but since they have to take blood from my leg and its a big hassle, I might as well get tested for everything. Plus even if you are in a relationship, you can never be a 100% sure what that other person is doing

  4. Hi Tracey.

    You don't know me, but I just want to say that I'm so proud of you. You face and battle your 'demons' and that takes a lot of courage. You are such an inspiration for people, on so many levels. :) I'm not an addict, but your life story truly touches me. I wish you all the happiness and luck in life.

    Love from the Netherlands,
