I really love the humor you all show on this topic.  The late 70's and early 80's were wild.  I was living in San Francisco from 1972 to 1980.  My partner and I went to the tubs every weekend. We broke up a year after moving to Los Angeles.  I was still a bit wild and had a f**k-buddy who later turned out to be positive. 

In 1985 friends of mine and I discussed the plague and decided that we would not be surprised if we were positive.  We all tested positive.  I found out the month before moving to Arizona.

I don't regret a thing and am still the same slut I was back then (given half a chance, LOL)

Thanks for all the support shown me so far.  I haven't been on in awhile because my machine at home crapped out and I picked up the new one yesterday.

"Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful nor conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offense and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people's sins, but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes." - 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, adaptation in A Walk To Remember

Problem is, I havenít been able to stop buying the things since. Iíve been trying to get the whole collection: herpes, chlamidia, gonorrhea, genital warts the whole kaboodle!

I became positive from having unprotected sex, fully aware of what the risks were.  It's my fault and there is no one to blame but myself.  I had an idea that I was positive after having flu-like sypmtoms and went to get tested.  I went in for the results and gave them my id, the person looked it up and hesitated and said that doctor would need to talk with me.  I wanted to laugh out loud, as I knew I had just been told that I was positive.............it did seem rather funny at the time.  The doctor that sat down with me and actually told me could not have been nicer.  He gave me every available phone number, including his home phone number and said if I ever needed to talk to someone, feel free to call.  I did begin to tear up a bit and left..............believing I was surely going to die some time in the near future.  Still here, and even though I never did call that doctor.......................I greatly appreciate how available he made himself...................in fact I've not a found a doctor to be as available since then.

I got it from unprotected sex with a woman who said she was hiv negative.
I still blame myself for not protecting myself!

By the way: This week on the news: In the Netherlands people who are lying about their status and do infect others are found guilty by judges! Unbelievable!

Zeb,

Lots of people say they're hiv negative when they have never tested and don't actually know, they just assume they are. That's one of the reasons this thing keeps spreading.

Just sayin...

As morally wrong as that may be, I'll bet it would slow HIV infections, if it had any effect at all.  Knowing that I'm the one responsible for my staying HIV- would but the responsibility on the party that has the most to lose - me.

Well the idea behind it is this:

The Dutch government fears that people will become reluctant to test themselves if they can be put in jail for not disclosing.

The case this week was that a guy who knew he was poz had a relationship for a few years, but... he told his partner he was tested negative.
When his partner became infected he still was lying about it. Finaly the mother of this guy told the partner about the poz status of her son.

So, even these people will not go behind bars. Morally wrong of course!
Try to imagine how it has to be to find out that the partner you love is acting like this.

The Dutch Govt is probably making the right call.

One of the barriers to testing is the stigma and life-changing aspects of the diagnosis,i ncluding the responsibilities some govts place on those who know they are  infected, so many simply avoid the diagnosis for as long as they possibly can. 

Bad for them in the long run, but in the short term, they have a great time believing they are neg, all the while spreading the virus like crazy.

Hey Rodeo,

I guess it must be something Canadian, I too practiced safe sex, I had a lot of problems with strep throat and my doctor said it entered the bloodstream when I my tonsils were inflamed, oh lucky me. I was tested every year for the past 14 years and always came back as negative. Met a one night stand in April of 2004, after just testing negative did the wild thing, safe, only he came and I love to swallow...pig that I am ::).  Five months later I meet this great guy and we started dating, we dated for the next 15 months having sex half way always safe, then one night we go out get drunk and come back to his place and get into it only this time we were so into it we did not use protection. Next day we talked about and it, he was worried and we talked about going in and being tested, but stupidly it took us till February 2006 to be tested, I found out I was poz on Valentines day, he found out 2 weeks later that he was poz too.  I was very naive to think that I was practising safe sex because oral was always stated to be so low risk...well come on who can suck someone with a condom on..not me that's for sure, but still I though I was safe, my partner is still with me, but he still gets angry most of the time blaming me, and he always will, he thinks I could have done more. I live with the guilt of ruining his life as it was. But one thing is for sure we love each other a great deal and we are a 98 persent match, I often wonder how much better things could be if it wasn't for this. But we have mostly good days now, it's when we have to go and get these bloody blood test every 3 months that he goes into this dark space and sometimes lashes out. But again I do understand and I hope that one day if we can make it though all this we'll grow old together if that is in the cards.

So again something Canadian.

after years of being good and having a new husband who is neg, I messed up on a trip to germany. One time with a 6'6 bear with a beer can of a you-know-what. Why unprotected? i do not know! I wouldn;t dare do that here in NY. I can;t change the past. I came back with only a slight fever. Dec 2006 i get tested and my worse nightmare happened. a positive result. I even worse fear: My neg husband would leave me. He didn;t. He understood. Not on meds yet.

Yeah, a lot of people seem to think it's an appropriate question. I think it's the same thing as meeting someone and asking them how they got their children. Like hiv, in most cases it was because they had unprotected sex. But other people got their children through adoption or IVF or other means. In either case, what does it matter? People would never dream of asking someone how they ended up with children and it should be no different to how a person ended up with hiv. It's a personal matter.

Thanks Ann. I agree. I'm always astonished. When my dad had cancer, no one asked me "how did he get it?" Knowing my affinity for the hyperbole, I would have said it was sexually transmitted :) Because isn't life a sexually transmitted thing? :)

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."

I was diagnosed almost a year ago and kinda have i narrowed down..my bet is the Puerto Rican guy I let cum in my mouth on a beach in Puerto Rico a few years ago..I have bleeding gums and was extremely stupid.

I may never beat HIV, but then again, it will NEVER beat me!

Ditto. I never let anybody cum in my mouth. But I sucked cock with bleeding gums. Failed to connect that with an increased risk of getting HIV. I give myself a hard time about it, but it was a mistake. Just wasn't looking after myself generally back then.

Now when I go in the Am I Infected Forum I have to be careful, as my diagnosis was so unlikely. Wish I'd been a bit more risk averse back in 2005!

Anyway, it cost me two years of my life.  For the first year I was so sick and had no idea what was wrong with me. I have no memory of most of that year. After the diagnosis I was a basket case - depressed, scared to death and pretty much cried myself to sleep every night.  My wife stayed by my side the whole time (another good forum topic, as I wonder how many guys are in my position).

I just found out I was positive on Tuesday (3-6-07).
Got it from my first Drug Party.

Yup, alot of people experiencing alittle Meth.

Well, I chose the faster option of the needle instead of the pipe.
Nothing faster to spread a virus than a dirty needle.

And now am paying the price for it.

However, Im trying to stay positive about being positive, and this community really helps me do that. THANKS

By the way, in response to RODEO99, my wife has commitment to staying with me through the journey.
She tested Negative today.

Staying Positive!
