Hi my names joanne. Im 21

Ive been with my partner for nearly a year now & I knew he was HIV positive when I first got with him. We had a real tough first few month as his ex g.f who is negative broke up with him and told a lot of people and a lot of people were horrible and pure evil about the situation. Thankfully she lives a good far distance away from us which it great lol. She doesn’t have a clue whatit is but thinks she does. Shes a few years older then me and I hope one day she asks herself why she ever let him go? Because hes the most decent male I have ever met. Id never change him and not so long ago I was suffering from depression & kicked him out. I know now that I did wrong we are now back together.
We haven’t had sex yet only because I want to know a bit more about HIV. I’m going to start going to hospital appointments with him and be by his side. I love him so much and hes the person I want to spend the rest of my life with. The thing I always worry about is maybe in a few years we would love to have children. I’ve heard of the sperm wash but I don’t know much about it. I was wondering if anyone has had this or they know anyone that has and how it works, cost etc..

My mum & dad know about my boyfriends status and they are so supportive. He lived in a hostel before I met him but my mum and dad allowed him to move in with us so hes looked after better and gets loads of food hehe. Hes lived with us for about 4 month and I mean we have our up's & downs about things just like anyone else.

Ive judged him once on what he has and I still regret that from this day now. I used to be like those people that judge people before you know them and now I know that was wrong for me to do. He does a lot for me and I do a lot for him to. Were both happy and I want to be there for him every step of the way. I love him dearly. Hes my best friend not just my boyfriend and without him i wouldn’t be the happy lady I am today.

And remember guys never judge a book by its cover.
