Day 3 on Atripla: Why Do You Think People Don't Talk About HIV? (Video)

July 12, 2011

Posted: April 2013

This video blog is part of the series "My HIV Journey: Videos of My First Months on HIV Meds, and Where I Am Now." Check out a full list of entries in the series.

What are some reasons why you think that people do not talk about HIV? Is it fear? Is it denial of the risk that is really out there?

I've also started my antiretroviral therapy and I have to say I'm feeling good!

I believe that people do not talk about it, because they are afraid. As the saying goes, "You are afraid of what you do not know." I never researched or talked about HIV/AIDS until I was diagnosed in 2002. It's amazing how so many people do not care to know about the disease. After my initial shock, I talk about being diagnosed with the disease. I just think to myself that I have HIV, HIV does not have me. I try to remain positive about my future.
