lanadelreyataz: I am Chris. I am 33 years old. I’ve been HIV positive since 2004. I am not a fanatic about my health, and spent many years heavily addicted to Crystal Meth. I am glad to be past that. I am, and always have been very healthy. I take my pills, and am undetectable. This is a face of HIV. I can’t believe I have made it this far. I was going through a very troubled period during the time I contracted HIV. I am bipolar, and wasn’t diagnosed yet.. I was living recklessly, and when I was diagnosed, my life completely collapsed. I spent many years living as if death lurked around the corner, but I did not need to do that. I’m not going anywhere. I’m healthy, and fat, and happy. If you’re POZ, it’s ok. Seriously. It’s ok. Be kinder to yourself, and concern yourself with the happy stuff in life. If you’re not Poz, get tested. That’s an obvious. Don’t be afraid to get tested. Just live, and be happy. I’m so glad I’ve finally started to, myself.
Oh, and while I’m at it, all of ya’ll should get a full STD screening. Syphilis is a bitch. It’s easy to treat, but gross if not treated.
