Im 19 years old and have been living with HIV for about 2 years. I would like to share my story so i can help others. I was 17 and in high school. I was the good girl. I stayed in church and made excellent grades. Around Oct 2008 i met this older guy. He seemed real down to earth and caring. We dated for 4 months and i ended up losing my virginity to him. After i found out he was cheating on me i ended the relationship in feb. In March of 2009 i met my fiancé. We dated for a while then decided to move in to our first apt shortly after i graduated. A month later i found out i was pregnant and we where overjoyed. At 4 months i had to take a routine blood test. It was there at the appointment i found out i was HIV positive. The only guy i had been with had been promiscus and had given me this virus. I immediately told my fiancé and he told me nothing was going to change and he loved me regardless. He held me and comforted me as i cried. We are getting married next month and have a little one on the way. Have faith in God!
