I am positive. It s very terrible thing that I never ever imagine in my life. I dont know what i should do now. I do not believe much in the treatment in my country, Viet Nam. But I know a thing that I have to do anything to last my life for longest that I could.

I call for your help everywhere. If you have any project in VietNam, if you could do anything to help me, plz dont let me behind!

Email me, answer me! I need to see the light for hope to be better.

I believe I will survive !

I understand that you have just tested positive. I understand the fear and isolation you are feeling. You are not alone. I have traveled to Vietnam, but I do not know what resources are available there. Did you try to search for support? That would be a start. I will also see what I can find. I don't want to to feel alone. I care! Chad

Hi! I am next-door to you in Thailand, and have traveled a lot in Vietnam, so I do understand what you are going through. I just tested positive on the 22nd of January and am having to find out what my resources are.

My first advice is to find your nearest Red Cross clinic or hospital. It may be far for you if you are in a rural area, but they will do all your initial bloodwork, VL, CD4 count etc. for free usually. They are also authorized by the local government to get you on medication assistance if you qualify. I do not know the Vietnamese guidelines, but for Thai people in Thailand, they get free HAART meds if their CD4's fall below 250.

The Red Cross has access to most of the latest meds and can get them from Europe, where the quality is assured. I am copying this as a PM to you as well, in case you do not check here.

Good luck! Please let us know what happens!
