July 3, 2012

Posted: August 2012

This video blog is part of the series "My HIV Journey: 13 Months of Videos Following My Diagnosis." Check out a full list of entries in the series.

For my 33rd birthday, I ask my viewers to help spread the word about "My HIV Journey" and to join me in the fight of HIV/AIDS. I also reflect on the last year and my recent lab results, and I end with a challenge to all of you.

Need help as quickly as possible. I am married to a lovely woman, Inever told her my past, now I have found out I have aids, so afraid she may have it. She has been for a test. I only hope and pray she proves negative. I dont want a divorce, but she does. Please can we chat confidentially if possible. I dont know where to turn for advice.
