I tested positive for HIV on June 8, 2010. I took it surprisingly well, I consider myself educated on the subject and looked at it as a new chapter in my life. Mainly because I have/had plans to move out the country in two weeks. I also had the guy that infected me along side me through all it and he’d just tested positive recently. That was on June 8th, today I am so upset I couldn't even get up go to work this morning, called in sick. I guess I was in shock, or just didn't really have to time to really process all that has changed so quickly. There’s a lot floating around in my head right now, but I've calmed down a bit. My anxiety this morning came from many places, I was two weeks away from moving out of the United States for a new job, but have to postpone the move until I see the ID specialist. I got all the changes finalized yesterday and I think that’s when it hit me that this is real and it’s going to be a part of me for the remainder of my life. I talked with a friend of mine who I didn't know was positive until today. He informed me that he'd been living with it for 25 year and is happy and healthy. So for those that feel your world is coming to an end, it's not. Life will change slightly but you can still do everything you want to. I am still taking my new job, just a little later than expected. It’s all working out.
