Your videos are great and I am getting energy to go and get tested. Earlier I was in a shock. I still don't know if I am HIV+ because there were no symptoms as such. I have sinus which causes soar throat so i cant say if this is because of HIV. Similarly I have dry skin but that is owing to my new living conditions (I am learning how to live in warm enclosed environment, a humidifier is a must). Similarly I have problem with my stomach but this was because of my eating habits. none of these symptoms were concurrent. I hope all this is due to my paranoia and there's nothing serious in my life. But I have learnt how to live safe. Earlier I was not so concerned about safety. Now it is the foremost thing.
