I just found out few days ago that i have it...
What do i do? i just can''t bear it... Wiill i be able to get over it
or will i be thinking about it contantly? it will remind me contantly
if i have to take tablet every single day! i can''t live with that...
Im too scared to touch my family and loves one in the fear that
they will catch it... My girlfriend is there for me right now but is
frighten to touch me through skin but ok with clothes... Its so
depressing... I''ve been finding a way to die painless death
because i don''t want HIV to beat me.. i want to be able to choose
my own death but the thought of future cure and my family is what is
stopping me from going ahead... I just can''t cope... Everything looked
different now that i got it... i just wish i treasure it before...
Im too young to start worrying about how many years left...
Should i wait for cure or to put myself out of misery??
sorry to hear about yur news :$(L) i wudnt wish it upon anyone ; but at the end of the day yur girlfriend and family will always love you no matter what illness you take :$ enjoyy the time ye have with both them and be respectful that their being so supportive towards yu :$! many people suffer this illness , maybe asking yu local GP for meetings for people who have this illness and expressing yur feelings to them may help :$ ! i hope this helps yu xo
I am very sorry to hear about your diagnoses. You can not get your family sick by touching them or sharing a toilet or a glass. Although this scary, you have to remember you are not living in the 80's. Treatment has come a long long way! People can live many many years now. Keep in mind medical treatments are getting better and better every day! Don't even think about killing yourself!!! This is all so new to you. You need time to process this correctly. Please find a network of people to talk to. You will be ok. Please just give yourself some time.
No, don't take yourself off the earth! Although there isn't a cure per se, Most people who take the anti viral drugs live long, happy lives. Let the situation empower you and use it for good. And FYI, if your saliva contains blood (like if you have a cut in your mouth), you could possibly transmit the virus. Skin to skin contact will not transmit the virus unless your skin has cuts and the person you touch has cuts.
Homerx, thats great that you have been living with it for 20 yrs. how old are you now? My BF was recently diagnoses and I am his GF. i am not leaving him but the thought of him dying is killingm e, i havent eating or anything. My chest hurst and I have asthma.
If you can email me. It would help to chat with someone who has HIV
