My boyfriend has been having fever for almost a week. At first, the doctors suspected that it could be dengue virus. But there were no rashes. They suggested doing a HIV test and today it came out positive. I know that my boyfriend regretted what he had done in the past and he now worries about the future. But I will not leave him to face what lies ahead alone. We will do it together.

I went into rehab to cure a drug addiction, found out i was 3 month pregnant at the time. there is where i took an hiv test (just for the hell of it)and low and behold it came back positive. I was devastated for many reasons but i was really concerned for my unborn baby. thank god i caught it when i did cause i took the necessary steps to have a healthy baby boy. IT'S Not a death sentence any more. U can live a healthy life :)

a week ago, i found out that im pregnant & yesterday I found out that I'm HIV positive. The person I got hiv? I'm not mad, nor am I bitter. I don't hate him, I'm just ail confused. but at the end of the day remember he gave me any and everything I could ask for, but who is to blame?? I look at myself in the mirror and the person that's looking back at me she so confused, she's the one to blame.

It is August 2nd and just yesterday on the 1st I found out that I was HIV positive. I havent been able to sleep, eat, I am extremely weak and scared beyond words. When the nurse called me into the room and told me my resutls, I almost fainted and started to break down. Medicine is going to be extremely expensive and dont know what I am going to do if I cant afford it.

Single Mom Living with HIV

All it took was one day. In December of 2009, I had a friend fly in to town. It was a friend who I dated exclusively and who I though he dated me exclusively. I told him to bring a condom since we hadn't been together in a while and so he did. In the middle of our encounter, he removed the condom because it was bothering him. That's all it took. I did not want to get tested for HIV because I was afraid of the results and so I didn't. Since my diagnose, I have tried to remain positive and hopeful that someday soon, a cure will come; not just for me, but for all those living with this disease.

My husband contracted HIV from a waitress. I contracted it from him and my infant son contracted it from breastfeeding. We were all well and healthy at that time and non-the-wiser of the virus within. My husband passed away in June of 2007, after living in denial, knowing full well that the woman he had slept with had died from AIDS related illnesses. I told my son about his condition, explaining as simply as I could for his young mind to understand the reason why he should take his medicine regularly.
