hi there, my name is brandon and ive visited this site in the past and have read amazing stories throughout the years but i never made an account, i have had a couple of scares that made me cling to this website and for a whole year after a one time exposure i wouldnt get tested because i felt in my heart i had hiv.. after reading everyones stories for some time i was finally encouraged to test, and my results came back negative, but through this site i feel like im apart of you all and i pray all the time for a cure.. u may not know it but im sure there are thousands of people who visit this site and read your stories without even establishing accounts... u guys empower so many people its amazing... anyway the real reason im here is because i was on facebook and seen an article that made me smile and think of everyone from this site... it was from a research lab in philadelphia and scientist did a form of surgery on the infected cells of hiv and the results showed the extinction of hiv in the cells, i would like for you all to take a look at it when you get a chance and keep hope because we are almost there....

Hi Brandon . I moved your thread into the only forum that HIV negative people are allowed to post in for lack of a better fit so please keep your comments in this one thread .

Congrats on your negative HIV status .
