Positive Outlook To Life As An HIV Positive Person. by Rajahbite(m): 11:37am On Jun 18, 2017
This is my first time of posting on this forum and I pray this get to as many people as possible.
Most folks dread the thought of testing positive to HIV but it shouldn't be so. That is why it is very necessary to get tested at least once in a month.
I developed the habit of getting tested monthly (though I can beat my chest and say with pride that I am not a promiscuous fellow). But recently I skipped a couple of months in my routine for no apparent reason. The last time I got a test was mid-march so I went for a test last week and the test result came out positive. To be certain it wasn't a mistake, I went to two other places and the results were adamantly positive.
Now some people may ask who who got me infected, but that is a none-issue as far as I'm concerned . I have even stopped asking myself how I got infected because it's been more than two years since the last time I had sexual intercourse . So it can't possibly have been sexually transmitted to me, most especially as the experts say the viral load is low which means I must have been recently infected, at most not more than five or six months.
I intend to utilize my status as an HIV+ person to reach out and help as many as I can. I am already posting on Facebook what I learn from counseling programs I attend on living with the virus.
The Doctors said they have to monitor my viral load and CD4 count for some time in order to determine the best treatment program for me. I know that if I stick to the treatment program and follow the Doctors advice diligently that I'll still live a healthy life.
I use this medium to beg of everyone reading this to go for an HIV test. Knowing your status is key to helping yourself. If you are negative, please maintain all necessary prevention techniques.... avoid unprotected sex/multiple partners , don't share needles/blades (if you can afford it, get your own hair clipper) but above all, get tested regularly.
If you find out that you are positive (like me) , please don't despair. There are several HIV/AIDS centres in most hospitals across the nation where you can access help in the form of counseling and medications and these are mostly free of charge.
HIV is not a death sentence, you can still live a meaningful and healthy life despite your status.
Spread the message and not the virus.

Nope, I'm not claiming to be a saint but the truth is that I don't know how I got it and it's not relevant to me.

If you must have unprotected sex, do not run out of test kits at home. Fast and accurate

My dad said i will definitely Get AIDS if o have sex or even touch a woman, he said that to me like 12 years ago or so when am about to enter JSS3, Well the funny thing is i dont even care about women, all i think about is playing Video games, watching one piece & Naruto. Though i still haven't had sex even once, i did touch women like twice accidentally, though soft, it wasn't as enticing as they made it out to be in movies.


P.S I will never do any tests unless absolutely necessary both my parents showered me with blessings of a healthy life in this miserable earth

Lol.. is HIV a death sentence?

Some countries have a high HIV rate and they still live their lives. In South africa alone, statistics says about 6 or 7 pple out of 10 have d virus. And yet these pple get pregnant and have healthy babies dat do not have the virus. Their govt even gives them free ARVs.

Just dat in Nigeria, even the simplest malaria can look like a death sentence attimes. Govt does not seem to be bothered in anyway..

You can live your life bro. Start living and stop worrying.

you are worrying yourself over nothing. That you have a persistent typhoid illness doesn't mean you are HIV positive. You are probably being exposed to the typhoid causing organism, salmonella typhii, which is why it keeps coming back.

Use google and see the real symptoms associated with HIV/ AIDS. Better yet dobthe test and free your mind.

Hiv is not a death sentence. You can live a full life, marry, have kids and be normal. Stop killing yourself for nothing please.

But prevention is better than cure or knowing how to live with it na. Had it been you made an effort to know how you contacted it, it would have been more useful to the readers than advising them on how to live with it.
Anyway, kudos for your bravery!

HIV is indeed not a death sentence. All you need do is religiously stick to your drugs and eat right, you too would be surprised how healthy you'd be. Forget all talks about how you got it, that's in the past. Keep looking forward and stay strong, newbie.

as much as I agree with with post up there, I disagree with th bolded. One of the steps in avoiding HIV spread is being aware of how one got infected. It will help the people around you or related to you. Who knows if it was a blade in you office of house, or a barber you patronise. This will help another person from getting infected.
