AVERT Says: Symptoms are not a reliable way to identify HIV infection, as many people display no symptoms at all, the only sure way to know your HIV status is to have an HIV test. Whilst the thought of having an HIV test can be worrying and you may be scared of the outcome, the sooner you have a test, the sooner you can start HIV medication if it is needed, and you can continue to live a long and healty life. i wouldnt know how to tell my family i wouldnt know how to tell anybody one thing for sure i do need somebody to talk you cant go thru this alone.
