In 2003 I applied for life ins. And was denied. I received a letter saying that they had found HIV antibodies in my blood. I had a second test done with a private doctor which also confirmed this. Since then I have been in denial. I also have had no symptoms, never went to the doctor again and never discussed it. Is it possible that HIV could be dormant in my system?

Response from Mr. Vergel

I am sorry to hear about your diagnosis. There is no such a thing as HIV being dormant. It keeps replicating and populating reservoirs in your body. Talk to your doctor about getting on treatment.

I made this video for people like you:

Stronger than HIV

Please let me know if you have more questions after watching this video.

Hang in there. We are living long and healthy now with HIV!
