My HIV journey
« on: April 16, 2020, 12:21:28 pm »
Hey guys! I posted my story on this forum almost two years ago about how I found out I was HIV positive. You can read it here https://forums.poz.com/index.php?topic=70878.0

So I have gone for confirmatory tests and the results all came back positive.

I started taking my drugs last year and I have gotten used to them already. I don't have to try so hard. I'm lucky I don't get the side effects the drugs are known to give

When I found out about my status, I lost the will to live but somehow I found the will and strength to live again.

There are sometimes, I forget I have the virus because the thoughts no longer occupies my mind like it used to.
