Positive at 22

I'm 22 years old and I was diagnosed this past summer. My life has changed for sure and I have come to terms with being positive. It was a hard and long transition and adjusting realizing that this was going to be my life but honestly it isn't that bad. I am now undetectable and pretty healthy.

Two things still continue to bug me. I still continue to have casual sex and I want to stop. I want to settle and date a nice guy but I can't seem to find the way to tell them about my status. I also haven't told anyone outside of my doctor and previous sexual partners . I want to come free and clean but it's so hard!
