I am a man aged 33 and happily living with HIV. i discovered this about 7 years ago when my health started failing me and i started ART after checking my CDF was 221. I was however not courageous enough as i had to stop the drug after i started experiencing strange side effects. Sadly i lost my lovely wife that gave me a lovely son soon after she discovered she was positive. I was devastated but have since picked up the pieces and restarted my ART and now am more heatheir than the healthy and i believe i will live my normal life till i die from natural causes.
