I'm 21 yrs old and I'm HIV+ I was told this awful news on feb 4, 2011. When I was 5 mths pregnant with my first child. it's not fair that this has happen to me. I was under so much stress that I had my bby 3 mths early and he was born a 2 lb premie THANK GOD! he is negative and now weighs 16lbs:). My family loves me but they are in denial. They don't acknowledge what I have. They just pretend its not true and it hurts because I have to basically go though this alone and raise my infant son.

Exercise eat healthy, and make good decisions about your body.

I met one of the most charming young girl around that time. Small talks led way to long conversation.... Eventually I realized that I was completely in love with her. Finally I got a mail saying " I have HIV". For two years we were together, we never had penetrative sex...Finally one fine day she told me that she had found someone else who was just as 'fucked up'. She told me that there was no need for me to be with her anymore.

I still remember that day. This handsome, young man came to me, and asked me if I wanted to have sex with him. He came close to me, and cuddle my head. Back then I was 18 years old, I did not know he was infected. He looked so cute and his appearance definitely fooled me. I hope my story will teach people to avoid having sex with others based on their appearance.
