This book, I’m Going Nowhere, is fiction based on the true story of an African woman, Miriam Ateko, who currently resides in Europe. Shortly when she relocated here, she was diagnosed HIV positive and told she would die in eighteen months without treatment.

It was extremely distressing for Miriam. She felt anxious, was in denial and almost went into depression. She had to figure out how to deal with the diagnosis. The process was not easy as she faced obstacles along the way, like stigma, discrimination, rejection, among others from the very people she thought would have supported her to deal with the trauma of being diagnosed HIV positive.

Despite the struggles she encountered, Miriam never gave up. With the right treatment and help from two organisations and some friends, her health improved, though not cured yet. She is now living her life to the fullest. She forgave people who wronged her but will not forget how she was treated.

Miriam’s story is sad, but inspiring. The story encourages HIV positive people not to give up life easily. When you follow ART exactly as prescribed you can achieve an undetected virus load and continue to live a healthy life.

Mary Oketcho-Dicks was born in Uganda, Africa, in 1954 and moved to the United Kingdom in 1999. She has lived there since and is now a British citizen.

Mary is an enthusiastic woman who has a strong feeling of eagerness to do something. She works with passion, even when in a difficult situation. Soon, she will be publishing a book titled I Became Speechless and Immobile based on her experience with stroke, and her second book, titled I Am Going Nowhere, is a fiction based on a true story and has just been approved for publication.
