I was diagnosed on the 11 of march 2013 with hiv, the same day i was diagnosed i was addmited to hospital suffering from pcp, (pneumocystic carinii pneumonia) Being new to hiv and not realizing the significance of pcp I told friends the reason I was in hospital was because of pcp. most of my friends have then googled pcp and discovered that pcp is an aids defining illness so i have in effect unwittingly told all my friends i have aids. result being my circle of friends has been reduced by about 85%. I am so angry that my doctor did not explain that pcp was more or less exclusive to people with hiv/aids.
