I'm 21 years old and I was exposed to the virus a week before my 21st birthday. I used to be very selective in having sex and would do it only with protection. But one open scar took my health away. I feel guilty and angry for what happened to me, and I thought to myself, why life is so unfair? Redirect my frustration with injustice and unfairness and channel it into a drive to fight injustice and unfairness. Alleviate suffering wherever you can. Today we are struggling with HIV, but I promise soon there will be a cure for it.

I found out I have the HIV virus after visiting my doctor with a rash that kept coming back. Well the doctor called me and said that she needed me to come back in for my results. I was totally blown away when I heard the words " you are HIV positive". I am now waiting on my next appointment with a case manager to see where I am with everything and where do I go from here. I want to tell my mom sooo bad but I know she will tell the rest of the family and I don't know if I am ready for the world to know.....

I got married 2004 when I was 19 to my first love. I was virgin, my husband was my first sexual partner. When I got pregnant tree years later I took a test that all pregnant women have to take in Sweden, it a routine test you take and they test you for all kind of diseases. Two weeks later we got a call from the local doctor and he told us to come in.... we went in to his office sat down and then he told us that I had the HIV virus... They told us that we could have as many children as we wanted and that we can live a long normal life. We have two children now 5 and 4 years old (not HIV infected) and we are like any normal family except from our secret.
