Living with HIV/AIDS
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.
Hello my name is Katie and I'm 19 years old and I currently live in the U.K. I am of African decent and I found out I was HIV positive when I was eleven years old do to my mother giving birth to me in Africa... It has been a hard seven years or so with treatment and I think as I get older it only becomes harder because I understand it more, and dating as well its also hard but I have gotten use to it now and it just something we all have to live with. I shall carry on with my treatment and everything else should hopefully fall into place for me in the future!
I am a woman of 28yrs, i discovered my status when my husband was diagnosed in 2008.I was afraid to test but i ended testing and as i thought i was positive... I started my treatment in 2009 when my CD4 count was 250,i was sceptical of it bcos of the stigma around ARV'S but God was with me. I didn't suffer from any side effects until now i have never been sick n my CD4 count is way up high.
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.
i live with HIV possitive Virus. One Year ago(2010), I doneted my blood in collage blood donation camp & after 15 days, Doctor called me
I AM 31 years. i discover I'm hiv + in April. i hav bn in relationship with a lovely guy since last November n b4 i tested we neva used a condom knowing that i was negative cuz i tested last year. i think i found it 4rm my ex. I really dont how 2 tel him since i think i have infected him already.i do suggest us 2 use a condom until m ready 2 disclose bt sometimes he refuse since we where both confident abt bn -. I need counselling 2 able 2 tell him.
I was one of the many cases of children born with H.I.V in the 90s. With my 21st right round the corner, every year i thank god for letting me live through another tough year.
i'm bisexual.... I was a carrer oriented guy then,in spite of being highly educated and updated,i done sex with guys without protection.I never bothered much. i was selected for a fantastic job offer from abroad and i had to undergo a medical test to get VISA. i was very confidant of getting VISA, the news that shocked me is the call from clinic that my all tests are clear except,HIV test for which i was tested positive.
I tested for hiv when I was 18 years old and I know the person who infected me so I have a feeling that I had it when I was 16-17yrs. Where I live there are many people that are hiv positive . It funny course an hiv positive person can be more happy than a negative person. So don't stress just live your life and protect others.
