I am sorry to hear about your diagnoses, but your life is not over. This is virus has become for most a chronic and manageable disease. You have heard the number that there are 40 million hiv positive world wide. Take stock of yourself, and live your life. The advancements are huge in the last 10 years. We do however, have a long way to go. I was diagnosed a year ago. I started advising my sexual partners to find where I contracted the virus, and came here for support. Shock is the first thing that I felt, as you have mentioned how did this happen to me. Give yourself a chance to accept your new diagnoses. It is important to find a good infectious disease specialist and you should contact your local aids organization to find the help you may need for not only medical care but also your psychological and emotional health. You have worth, and you have a place in this world. Be good to yourself, hope to hear more from you. D
