07/13/06 09:44 PM
My health department contacted me, before my doctor today at work. I found out the HIV test I took came back postive. I am so afraid!. I don't want to go to sleep. I know I will discuss this with my personal doctor in the morning. But this first night is very tough. Am I the only one who ever felt like this. I was told in a very loving and gentle fashion this this does not mean the end, it is just the beginning of living a normal healthy life if I do what my doctor tells me, still this first few hours are tough. I left work early and drove around for hours before coming home, I don't want to go to sleep. Do anyone have an advice . Thank you
