Uh, how exactly does one definitively determine that they were infected 18 years ago?

hey I just found out I was postive in april but the doctors say I have been postive for about 18years or so.

I would like to know how this is when you tested negative not too long ago.

This past summer makes it 20 years for me. I was told that there was a good chance I was infected 20 years ago this month, but the docs said to wait for 6 months to be sure, so I was diagnosed in January of '89. I know who I was infected by, though I can't remember the exact date or anything, nor do I care about it. It was sometime in late July through the middle of August. It was right around my birthday. Aaaaahhhhhh HIV, the Gift that Keeps On Giving ;)

Good afternoon everyone! Well for me when i first got tested it was about 15yrs ago and t-cells were 56. and i tested  as having Aids not hiv!But i have had it for well over 22 yrs.How could i be sure of that?Well because me and my husband have been together for 22 yrs now and he has been tested from day 1 and he is Negative thank God! So i did not get it from him i obviously got it b4 we met!You can  most likely tell how long you've had it  by knowing that you have only been with that 1 partner for that long and never cheated i guess! Oh i also tested HepC  and my husband is negative in that also.And thank God it has now been over 8 yrs since my Hepc VL has been Undetected  and my Liver Enzymes have also been Normal!And boy am i glad cause my Lil old legs  were getting so sore and tired of over 500 Interferon Injections for almost 3  1/2 yrs:( I am very healthy and work 5 days aweek standing on my feet for 6 hrs a day even with Neuropathy!My t-cells today are over 700 and my Hiv VL Has been Undetected for over 10 yr's  Thank God again!

Been living with HIV since 1989 - 19 years and counting - not progressed to AIDS yet. Still no opportunistic illnesses just close to death a few times due to side effects but the meds. a positive attitude and a passion for life has kept me going for all these years.

Hi Jewel,

Welcome.  It's always good to know other woman LTS.  Please consider joining us ladies in the "positive women" part of the forums.  There's a particular thread entitled "Ladies Thread" where we women talk about our daily lives, struggles, little victories, and support each other.  It's a great place and we would love to have you with us.
    Luv,
Betty

i tested poz in 1987, so 21 years, 3 months. i don't have any big secret to survival; i eat well, never miss a dose and try to follow my doctors orders.

i have my share of issues though, i just deal with them as they come along. i don't dwell on what ifs or the past. it can not be changed.
