I am openly hiv where I live but just because I am doesn't make me a threat to others that hAve hiv as  I have a very wide and varied friendship circle  and it continues to grow I am  a single mum of  five and none of my children are carriers a I ve only contracted the virus less then 10  months ago as I no where I caught it from  ....me personal I ve always been on the outskirt of so called society   and have had to deal with that since before I was able to even understand stigma predudice  and when I was first diagnoised yer I felt like the ginger kid of you tube ....but  I ve dealt with the fact I'm hiv I can't change that  .... but leting people see  that the only real differnce it makes is the way they see me now ..I live in the fens  and local jokes is we all got webbed feet outside tiolets and strong in the arm thick in the head one thing I will say is they all took this news extremly well I don't get grief for having hiv  but as I said I have five children  so tend to get a lot of grief through them....have a great day

Go Vikki!

Now, clue me in please. Who is the ginger kid on you tube?

I'm a bit behind the times, well, I take that back. I'm a lot behind the times.

You're brave -- you are raising an army. Your reunions in the future will be grand.

I'll try to hunt it up.

My calling you brave was not about HIV it was about being a mum to five.

That, to me, is brave.

I'm going after ginger kid now.


Updated: I found him and a slew of his videos. I hope they can slow down the bullying of him in his school.
