Positive for 18 yrs!

Hi, I am new to this. I just wanted to share my story with HIV. I am a 46 yr old female.

I was diagnosed back in 1994. My husband had AIDs, which we did not know at the time. Back then it wasn't so common as we fit into the "this cannot happen to me category", However he passed away back in 94,

It was terrifying, I did not want to end up like that, However, fast forward to 2012 and I am undetectable and have a good viral load. Its been a long road but I remarried and am happy.

I just want to say to newly diagnosed people. Its not the end of the world. Its the beginning of a new one slightly altered. With all the new medications they have now a days, its so much better.

God bless my positive friends!
