Women living with HIV

Jessica 1

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.

I am a 20 year old female. I found out I had HIV when I was 15. I have had a wonderful life and am going to continue living a beautiful happy life. I have had one baby boy by the grace of god, he is healthy and HIV-. You can still live a long healthy life as long as you stay healthy. Exercise eat healthy, and make good decisions about your body.

K.K.

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.

Katie 2

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.

Mary 1

Two weeks ago I found out I am HIV positive. I was so shocked My mind was blank. Couldn't think until the doctor spoke to me. Just felt like this was a punishment or something. Don't know when or how I got the virus. But now I am still the same, nothing has changed.

I went for HIV/AIDS testing last year... The results came back positive. I was referred to the nearest clinic where I did my Tuberculosis test. The TB test also came back positive. I was only 21 when i found out i was HIV positive. I haven’t told my parents and the whole family though because they are very strict people and they will judge me. I don't have any friends either. But 1 day i will come out.

LBelle

I am 31 years old. .....we had a great ultra sound the baby was normal and moving and it was the most happy time we had been thru in a long time... However, all that was crushed when they brought me in a little room by myself and broke the news I was HIV pos. I went numb. I stop breathing, and I screamed. It was unreal to me... I thought "its a mistake" somethings not right, they have it wrong.
