I have been poz for almost 14 years. I suggest to everyone that when you first find out about your HIV status (please do not make major decisions!). Take the time to come to terms with your diagnosis. The decisions you make now can influence the rest of your life. I was 22 almost 23 when I found out and the decisions I made still haunt me. I have had a good life, but one major decision I made I have always regreted. This disease is not the end of your life if you don't let it be. I have went on to college- been married to a man that is HIV- for almost 11 years. He still is HIV-, don't let this virus destroy you. I believe that this virus can destroy you mentally by dwelling on it faster than it destroys the body.-- take heart that not all of us are afraid to live life to the fullest!
