Hi Betty, welcome and thank you for introducing yourself to the community!

I am sorry to hear you are feeling depressed. I hope this community can help you go through this difficult phase. Here you can find others that have been diagnosed for longer and that can share their experience and offer advice. Have a look at this post by 10olive, for example: healthunlocked.com/hivpartn...

When you are ready, you can also ask a question for the community to answer here: healthunlocked.com/write/hi... - when you do that most followers receive an email notification linking to your question...

Hi, I was diagnosed June 1st. I've had low days but as someone with a history of anxiety and mild depression, I've surprised myself with how rational I'm being about this. Yes, there is still a stigma and ignorance and for that reason I don't yet feel able to be totally public but I think it's important not to internalise that. Most people have put themselves at some risk. We just got unlucky and contracted HIV. We can adjust to that though

I'm a 30 yr old female. Been positive since 2013 and I still have a hard time talking about it let alone thinking about the fact.

Every since I found out I've been a different person. Simply different.

Aloha!

My names Tim, 26 from the Midlands. Diagnosed about 6 months ago, straight onto tablets and became undetectable very quickly. My family and close friends are fine with it all, and recently I decided to disclose my status publicly, which was a great feeling, and I've only had positive responses from friends family and colleagues.

I'm more active on the Terrance Higgins forum, and new to this one, but I'll try and keep on top of this one too :)

you need to get a life, seems you just want to scare people. It's idiots like you that adds to stigma and makes our life hell. If you was hiv+ , which I don't think you are, then you wouldn't be saying things like that

I never state anything that cannot be proven. It is fictitious. Not one virologist on the planet has been able to prove it even exists.
