    Can I just say that your open acceptance of reality is nothing short of inspiring? That’s said, be easy man.

      It’s reality, Beejay.
      Running away from it doesn’t make it any less real

    This is such an amazing and healthy headspace you’re handling your discovery with. And if this is where you’re at now, then you’ll be alright. Now focus on those who’ll make you feel good in this period. If you know your family will only go about trying to make you feel bad, you probably shouldn’t tell them. Not yet anyway.

    Wow. I need to get tested again. I was thinking I am save since no sign from an unprotected sex since 2015 Dec.
    I am freaking out

      Don’t freak out. Freaking out won’t change anything. Besides, you may or may not be positive. And being positive isn’t the end of the world. It’s just the beginning of a new phase

    You’re not alone, Mitch. HIV doesn’t have to be a result of many body counts. It takes just one poor choice.

    I’m happy that you’ve taken sole responsibility for this choice and the appropriate decision to stay alive and healthy. You alone matter in this. Hold on dearly to those who have accepted you and your status but more importantly, never let yourself go no matter what.

    Your family might react either or otherwise as you’ve thought. Disclosing and accepting ones HIV status is a process. It could turn out to be the strong bond that will bind you more to your family.

    However, give yourself time, be emotionally sound and independent, and be armed with as much information before you start to disclose your status cos questions will be asked.

    Much love to you.

      Not to judge but that wasn’t a smart move. Protection is called that because that’s what it provides – Protection from STDs. Just get tested and stay safe

    You shouldn’t have trusted the ‘got tested and negative,in March’ line,Mitch.
    HIV takes between 2-6weeks of infection to be detected.

    Wow Mitch; you are extremely brave, even penning this must have taken a lot of courage. I know you are strong and will be alright, stay strong and continue to seek out and sorround yourself with supportive, loving people. Your best days are ahead of you -; also thanks for contributing to the eradication of the stigma sorrounding HIV/AIDS which is more lethal than the virus itself …

    Wow Mitch! Stay Strong. Honestly, This is a reminder for me. I stay protected 99% of the time and it takes a careless 1% to get infected. Sometimes, condoms break, sometimes when pulling out there might be a spill. That’s not an excuse to be careless but shit sometimes happens even when you are careful.

    You have a family here, we got you.

      4 weeks off your meds?! Why do you sound proud saying so? Please if you’re having issues with where you’re collecting drugs, kindly state your location and we might be able to direct you to a comfortable clinic.

      Please do so asap. Thanks
