Men living with HIV

Mark 1

I was just diagnosed being HIV positive a few days ago, after I decided to go for a blood test at the pharmacy. Wow,I almost fainted,when the nurse gave me my result, I said ''do it again'' It was positive, I was devastated, I cried..........I was so emotional. I thought, why God? Why did you do this to me? I felt robbed of my life, I thought of death. I am still trying to cope with the fact, that I have the virus, just been diagnosed a few days ago.


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 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.


I am a latin guy who has been enjoying hos life since I discovered I was HIV positive. If you have this virus in your body dont feel sad come one guys this is no the end of the world. Look at around you there are people who still need you people who love you who want to see you smiling.


I was infected at 17 years old by my second boyfriend. After being in that relationship for about 6 months or so this fellow told me that he loved me and that we didnt need to use condoms anymore. The sex was so good that I can still remember it to this day in more than one way. Today I know that Early detection and ALL PREVENTION are the keys to stopping the spread of this disease as well as EDUCATION. Take it from me " Wrap it UP"


I was just diagnosed today, I know I had it... When the clinics opened after the holidays I asked to be tested and it came back reactive and a second test was ordered for the confirmation and I received it today. I have decided that no one else needs to know, Right now I can not deal with the discrimination and deal with my illness at the same time. I will have to deal with the emotional side of the illness in due time, in other words joining support group and telling my family and friends. I know life goes on but I have positive plans with the illness I live with now.

I am a 47 year old Italian guy from Staten Island NY. I have been living with this disease for 15 years going on 16. I was in so much denial I ran the streets as I had before smoking crack and just wanting to get high and higher, because I thought if I was going to die, I was going to die happy and high. So I thought. After 4 years I saw I was still here and healthy, so to speak. I decided to get help for my addiction and get educated about HIV/AIDS. I am happy and yes even proud to say that I have been clean from the drug of my choice for 6 going on 7 years and have been an HIV/AIDS Outreach Worker, Educator and Test Counselor for the same number of years and still am.

When i found out i was so angry at myself how could i have did this to myself and my wife and family. The one thing that keep me was my wife unconditional love for she didn't left me, it wasn't easy but she still with me and i love her for that. I hope my story help someone when you have sex with people you don't know anything about think twice cause your life you save will be your self put on a condom

First of all if you're somebody that is negative reading this please make sure you know your status as nerve wrecking it might be your better off because otherwise you’ll be putting a love one at risk.... Am 28 just got diagnosed with HIV, I’m still in denial and think about hurting myself more then a few times a day.

Mr. N.

I don't want to tell you HOW I got HIV, instead, I'll tell you what I did with it. So I took what was a directionless life, went back to school, and studied HIV. Six years later, I'm a PhD candidate at an excellent university and have begun experimenting on HIV, finding new ways to inhibit and hopefully destroy the pandemic it has caused. I failed science in high school but now I know why: I had no motivation. HIV is the perfect excuse to move beyond the hum-drum of normal life and make your life something special, something worthwhile.
