Brittany 1

I was diagnosed with HIV in February 2010, right after a follow up i had for a miscarriage in January. me and my mother was heartbroken. When i went to the doctor in October they told me that my HIV was undetectable. which was a major relief to me and my mother. She is so silly cause she thought i was goin to die and both my children would lose me. Now I am in perfect health and waiting on a cure.

I AM 24 YEARS OLD & WAS DIAGNOSED IN APRIL THIS YEAR AND I AM STILL GOING STRONG, I WENT TO THE HOSPITAL 4 MY CD4 CHECK UP AND ITS 695. I SUMTYMS ASK MYSELF WHY ME? BUT AT THE SAME TIME THIS VIRUS MAKES ME VALUE MY LIFE EVEN MORE NOW, I HAVE STOPED SMOKING AND DRINKING AND IT MADE ME REALISE THAT THIS IS NOT A DEATH SENTENCE BUT ITS A METTAR OF CHANGING MY LIFESTYLE.

Precious Child

Hi ladies, I was diagnosed today August 27 2010. Its sad I'm pregnant with my first Child. I call him precious baby. I must start ARVs on Monday for the Sake of Precious. I told his father today he just stared at me never said anything. I think he blames me, but I never cheated him even once. Last time I tested neg. I'm so devastated.

On new years eve last year my drink was spiked. I was raped and bashed by two men. They ruined me. Three months later, I tested HIV positive. It is now September and after what happened on new years and being diagnosed I struggled with some serious depression. I tried to kill myself twice but I thankfully failed. So now here I am. HIV positive after my rape but I am here and I am doing ok.

I am currently a full month away from being 21 years old. I am HIV +. I was born with it, but i didn't know what was wrong with me till i was 15 years old. The way that i found out was that something was first wrong with me was when i was six years old and i got blind after getting very sick and taking twice as long as the other kids to get better.

I just found out that I am HIV positive. only three days since. The thing is I am not sick or I am not anything just did the test for safety and found out I was in fact HIV Positive. I have not found out my CD4 level as yet so I am not sure if I have to take any ARVS and how much. My blood was sent to the Lab for a comprehensive report. I am trying to stay strong as I know that there are people who have lived a long time with it Pray God I am one.

Before I start I know your eyes probably hurt with all the "googling" you've been doing, as well as your fingers... So if its any help... Dont google... You'll send yourself mad!! You can certainly google specific things, but dont just type in HIVAIDS... because that information can be A. Unreliable and B. Confusing. Trust me, I've spent many of sleepless nights wondering if I could live a normal life again, because of some advice I believed from some random person, who was given the mighty title of "Top contributor" on "Yahoo Answers"... What sounds important, just too bad they aren't your doctor....
