NOBUHLE

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE WHO SHARED THEIR STORIES, READING YOUR STORIES GIVES ME HOPE. 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'M TAKING MULTIVITAMIN EVERYDAY AND I TRY TO EAT AS HEALTHY AS POSSIBLE. I DISCLOSED MY STATUS TO MY BOYFRIEND OF 5 YEARS AND HE IS VERY SUPPORTIVE. 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.

SUMTYMS I ALSO FEEL DOWN & FEAR THAT I WILL DIE SOON BUT TELL MYSELF THAT WE ALL GOING TO DIE EVENTUALLY, SO GUYZ BE STRONG AND TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOURSELVES.

WHENEVER I FEEL DEPRESSED I JUST OPEN YOUR STORIES AND READ THEM, THEY MAKES ME STRONG AND GIVES ME HOPE THAT I AM NOT ALONE AND THIS IS NOT A DEATH SENTENCE WE CAN HAVE A VERY LONG LIFE SPAN AS LONG AS WE TAKE CARE OF OURSELVES.
