I just found out and need some help!!
      09/22/11 09:55 AM

I just found out that i am hiv positive after going to the doctor for something completely un-related but he had me get one after i told him i was gay. I went and got the test done thinking there was no way because i never had sex without protection and always asked anyone i did anything with if they got tested for std's and other stuff like hiv. I tried to be careful but in the end my test still came back positive. Here i can only assume its because i did have unprotected sex once with this guy i started dating and the condom broke once as well. I had asked and he said he had nothing and got checked every 3 to 6 months. Well I guess he gave it to me and i told him, so that he could make sure he has it or not and to get checked. I cant believe this happened to me and that from this one time I kinda condemned myself to loosing a possible 20 years off my life. I really wanted to ask if i started treatments, I am only 22, will the virus change and kill me at an earlier age than people without hiv? Also will there be any complications from the medications? What did i get myself into? Honestly i just came out to my parents so i dont want to throw this on them and have them think differently of me. Shortly after my diagnosis i felt like killing myself and how much easier that would be than living with this. Please give me any information that would help me understand this disease and any possibilities out there that there could be a cure soon
