My Letter to HIV: A Letter From Mike Hellman

May 9, 2012

Mike Hellman

Mike Hellman

Dear HIV,

I'm not licked yet. You came into my life 27 years ago and I fought you against all odds. I'm still here and so are you. You killed all my friends and my partner but I'm still here. You opened me up to many infections but I fought back and I'm still here. Some days are best forgotten but I'm still here. You ravaged my body, you cleaned me out but I'm still here. Don't think I don't know who you are. I know you intimately and I'm still here. I must speak out to everyone who is at risk. For if I can stop you from marching on I will. GET OUT, GET OUT, GET OUT! It's time to stop the madness. END THIS NOW!

Michael Hellman, Pittsburgh, PA

Hello, i really than mike for his coment. Hiv is a very dangerous disease. Sex is one stupid thing that closes one's sense of reasoning when ever a person is in the mood, and will some times forget that HIV is real. Hiv virus is every were, even among people u will never believe their have it. I advice if one those not have a trusted sex partner; he/ she should use other means to satisfy(mastabetion / using an electric artificial penis) himself or better off, total abstinence instal of taking an unneccery risk. Every one should make Hiv test a routine test or better off, buy Hiv testing kit and keep it in your house(where you sleep). Hiv test is not difficult to learn and perform with the instruction. It is better if will detect it on time. currently at a very earlier stage, it can be totally cured. Though no universal acceptance or approval, but it is happening life in this side of the world. Thanks n bye. End.
