Hi Kevin!
There are more 24 year olds then you think who are diagnosed HIV positive. I hope you have chosen a good HIV specialist just to get baseline numbers. Also it's good to go to a support group so that you don't feel alone. When I was diagnosed I waited too long to get support and i think suffered for no reason! It's hard to be positive and especailly in the gay world where people are so secretive about their status.

I can honestly tell you that, yes you were stupid in not having protected yourself better, but life goes on. Theres still hope for a natural life. Be strong Kevin, I know its easier said than done, but you must stay optimistic and try to take better care of yourself now. I...well I truly hope I could be of any aide to you in any way possible. There are several capable, open-minded people that will stand by you. Dont feel sorry for yourself, you've got to be warrior. Feel free to e-mail me at rachel_u_00@yahoo.com, if you need to talk or anything.

Life is a challenge. It's a hard time to be young. The consequences for mistakes are huge. And sex is such a killer...so enticing and so deadly. Don't beat up yourself. Benjamin Franklin remember died of syphillis...many of our great leaders from that time had syphillis. It happens. Find support and go on.
