I was diagnosed with HIV in May 2011 which I can not really explain how or when i contracted the virus. I have not yet started taking the ARV's despite my CD4 count of 229 as I am afraid of the side effects and am trying my best to raise my immunity.

Living with HIV/AIDS
I'm 19 years old and i found out i was HIV positive 2 months ago... so many thing were rushing through my mind, but the one thing i kept thinking was that i was going to die. i have been reasured that i am not going to die, and im pretty healthy at the moment and i don't need to start taking meds for a few years. i need to stop getting depressed because having HIV isn't the end of the world, plus drugs and medication are always getting better so who knows maybe a cure in 3,5,10 years???
Hey guys, am a 24 year old Nigerian lady living with HIV. I on my own decided to go for a test, I wasn't feeling sick or anything.... My doctor, mum and sister were the only ones I could talk to and am sure I made it through that period cos of the support they gave me (especially my doctor). He kept explaining the nature of the disease over and over again, telling me how healthier I was than most of the people living without the disease and how I could live a normal life, get married and have healthy babies.
I was diagnosed a little over 0ne year ago. I was and am still very angry but the problem is, who can I be angry at? The last time he and I were intimate, I was the bottom and after he got off he pulled out and his face turned white, and he just stared down at his dick. ....The condom had broke and he ejaculated inside of me!
I was 7 months pregnant an old boyfriend I dated in 1985 was killed in a car wreck. I was told by mutual friends that his parents wanted to tell me something he had planned on telling me prior to his death, he was HIV+. I immediately was worried about my son, so I was test and found out I was positive as well. I had my son tested as soon as he was born and thank God, I did not pass on to him. In 1985, HIV wasn't as known to the straight community, I was on birth control, so I thought I was fine.....

I broke up with my girlfriend half year ago and i was depressed for several weeks. I drank a lot since that day and used to have sex with anyone who want to have sex. I didn't even care if i might be infected with HIV, I even wanted to see how HIV look like. Then, I was diagnosed with HIV + a month ago.
