Being a gay man I have a HIV test every six months.
The last one was positive I am 37 and really let my guard up being my age and not being positive.
I was infected by someone who was unaware they were positive so I really harbor no ill will towards the person, at first was not going to even tell them, but another friend said I would feel guilty if they infected another person because they remained unaware. Letting him know went well for both of us and we are still good friends.
My MD was really great about telling me my diagnosis she let me know that while my life will be more complicated from here on out, the treatments have really come a long way and with proper treatment there is no reason why I shouldnt remain healthy.
I am going to schedule an appointment with an infectious disease specialist who both my MD and I know and respect.
Shold be going by the end of the month I am a little worried what my numbers will be, but since I was most likely infected in late Dec. don't think it would have progressed to a danger level yet.
I really suspected I had been infected when I had the classic symptoms of an early infection in january (severe flu like symptoms that lasted about a week, and swollen lymph glands)
So while the diagnosis was not entirely a shock to me it still was not what I wanted to hear, but life goes on and I am going to do what it takes to manage this disease.
