i found out i was hiv positive my first semester of college march 6 2010 .I was 18. A man came to the college and talked to us about his hiv story . Immediately after his speech me and my cousin went to this van that was outside doing hiv testing . I was 95% sure i was going to come out negative . After i came out negative i had planned to always use protection so i could be 100% sure. Me and my cousin go into the van we fill out questioners about our personal life. She took the finger prick test first i went in write after her . The social worked told us we would have to wait 20 mins for the results. 20 mins go by and they call my cousin to the testing room . She comes out says "negative" i was so relived . I expected to hear my results soon after since we took the test nearly seconds between .Ten minutes had passed when the social worker called me to the back room where the nurse practitioner and the doctor was i found this odd because they didn't no do this with my cousin . The social worker then tells me "the test came back reacted" I broke down in tears. I was crying to complete strangers for about 15 mins. After the 15 mins i rushed to the front of the van i told my cousin lets go . She said whats wrong and i told her i am hiv positive. She then stood in shock . I pulled her off the bus . When i went on that bus i was the happiest college student everything seemed like they were falling into place i still contained my innocence. When i left that bus i was a hole different person i didn't even recolonize myself it was all down hill from there. I knew i would never be who i was again.

Hi Dontstop, Welcome ;)

What an interesting story. I can relate to the shock but lord I cannot imagine being 18 and getting that news. What a truly strong person you must be. Congrats on your 3 years of progress, and here's to many many more happy years to come!!
