Would like HELP with how to teach others on HIV
      #40133 - 09/16/02 06:14 PM

I just found out that I am HIV positve and I took it pretty good. Now for my family and friends that is a whole new stort in it's self. I would like to know how to teach and just help out my small town. When I say small I mean about 2,000 people. Our county is of the older generation and I would like to educate on what I know and can help with. I do belive that ALL of OUR CHILDREN TODAY need to know and there Parents as well. Now all this out and my family and friends know we are all dealing with it pretty good and learning to adjust with all that goes with it. I understand people who do not want to tell, but I want to tell and tell all about what is out there and not just HIV but herpies,and all the other diseases. Please cantact me at

Well So far I am negative but who knows. Anyways my 2 cents. If you do not have a fear of people knowing going to local highschools and colleges and giving lectures is an excellent way of people knowing. I dont know if I would have the courage to do that, but just a thought.

I dont know what i am going to do when i get my results back today. I'm too scared to do anything. But I think becoming an activist is the good thing to do. We can use our experiences to help others make wise choices.

Are by chance within 2 hours or less of a major metropolitan area. If you are you can work with the agencies in that area to get your local area more in tune. I do public speaking at High School and College level to make the awareness of HIV & Aids more out front and in their faces. I belong to 2 Positive Speakers Guilds and we do many HIV & Aids presentations in the area where I live. Also if there is a small HIV & AIDS service organization in your town they can always use Volunteer help. Ask you Doctor and see what he can come up with for you.

It sounds like you have a great attitude. Ignore these people who repeat like an odd mantra that HIV doesn't cause AIDS or that all doctors are corrupt. They are a strange, weird bunch but very vocal. Find an HIV specialist who you can trust and who you like!
