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, and somehow at the hospital they didn't sterilise the needles properly.  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.  It wasn't by choice but I guess it was what god had planned for us, no doubt my experience has only made me stronger and I shall carry on with my treatment and everything else should hopefully fall into place for me in the future! Do hope they find a cure soon though .
