I'm a female teen whos HIV positive
      03/17/02 09:56 AM

I'm new here. I'm 13years old and I'm HIV positive. I don't know alot of teens who have AIDS/HIV and I'm starting to want to have more contact with teens like me. It gets boring talking to my dad about all my teenage issues that always end up having me ask, "Is it going to be different because I have AIDS/HIV?" And to tell you the truth, he doesn't know what to say anymore. I live in Hawaii. Both my birth parents died and as you may have guessed, I'm adopted. My dad died when I was little from AIDS and cancer. I ended up living w/ my Aunt (my mom now) and her ex-boyfriend (my dad now). When I was 9 we had gotten word that my birthmom was hit by a car and was dying. She did after a few weeks or so. I never knew my birth parents. I had a half brother who died before I was born. My whole birth family is dead. I have a little sister. But once again, I'm adopted. I wish I had had a brother who I could talk to about my teenage problems. I'm not open about having HIV here because people aren't as well informed as they are in other places. I'm sure their better informed then before but we (I) still think I'd rather not say anything. And that another thing. I have no teenage companions to talk to about sex and stuff mixed with living with HIV. I don't think they would get me as well as I'd like them to. I understand that, but does anyone understand me? I have to ask my self that at least 100 times a day now. I have dreams or becoming a actress or singer or writer. Oh yeah, I forgot to say that I was born with HIV. And yeah, I have dreams too, just like any teenage girl would. I know you understand but it's just that I've never had anyone to say back, "I understand you completely!" And so all I really want is to be able to ask and talk about life but with someone who knows how it is.
I'm going on and on... But if you want to e-mail me, please do so at:
Thanks for your time, Milla
