Living With HIV / Feeling that no one will ever love you again
« Last post by fabio on Today at 09:25:46 am »
I have been hiv positive for about a year now,I'm 22,my parents and brother know I am positive. I have had a very hard time accepting the whole thing,on top of having an hpv coinfection and having high grade dysplasia,I just feel so lonely and sad. It feels like I'm gonna be forever alone. These kind of emotions take over me the most when I read fiction and crave for love even more.
Does anyone else feel this way? And if so,how do you cope with it or fix this issue. It makes me feel very depressed every time I think about it.

It all feels the very same way to me. I just can't accept the whole fact yet,I have been positive for a year now and am 23. I have been avoiding reality all together ,when it comes to everything I just wanna live in fiction. I don't feel like facing reality most of the time,but I tell myself to pull it together because I still have my family who supports and loves me.

Estoy infectado? / Re: SŪntomas de VIH
« Last post by Andy Velez on Today at 08:38:09 am »
Esa no es una sintoma del VIH.

A 12 semanas todas las generaciones de VIH pruebas en uso hoy son conclusivo y fiable.
Es muy bueno estas hablando con un terapeuta.

Tu estas sin riesgo para el VIH.
Entonces Andy tu me dices que no hay riesgo por haberle metido el dedo con una herida en la vagina de la chica? y que se haya manchado de sangre menstrual? Si es asi me quedo ya tranquilo y no pregunto mas, soy muy hipocondriaco con las cosas que me pasan, ya me estoy tratando con un psiquiatra, gracias y saludos
Thank you Mike. I went yesterday and stuck out my arm for the needle 🙂
I actually didnít see the doc, just went and gave the sanples.
Hopefully thereíll be nothing to worry about 🙏
You're welcome.

Next to condom usage for intercourse you might want to consider adding PrEP to your routine to provide an additional layer of protection against HIV and peace of mind.
