I am 26 yrs old and I was born Hiv postive and Hep C, I contracted the virus threw my mother because of her addiction to drugs... I am one of the babies who born with the HIV virus and Hep C back in the 1980's, But I took treatment for the Hep C so for now I am clear free from Hep C but I still deal with my HIV because there was a time where i took a break from medications, But I clearly do not recommend it at all to anyone to what I did. I did it out of anger... But I am back on meds and I am undetictable still. Read more
