To all you people
out there. You have to realise that HIV/Aids is from god, It's a punishment
for those that are having illegal sex, (sex before marriage, affairs,
the lot, etc). In my opinion, if you are destined to get it you will no
matter how many condoms you put on. We all need to appreciate that god
exists, and that life is a gift from god. Being brought up in an islamic
family, i have learnt to appreciate certain things about life. I believe
i am so lucky to be here today! Be thankful to god for life and stop fooling
around. take care!

Hey, all you who
have AIDS... I got great NEWS!! Jesus loves each and every one of you!
Whether you believe in Him or not. I just wanted to post this message,
not to critize the non-Christians, but to show the miracles of God that
are happening in Africa. Uganda, previously a very bad country, was transformed
because of the prayers of God's people and because of God's mercy and
power. People, that had AIDS, got saved by accepting Jesus Christ as their
Savior, and by God's power they have been miraculously cured of HIV and
its symptoms. I am basing this off of reports from all around Uganda that
people were cured of it because of God's power and because God answers
the prayers of His children... I hope you will not say that I am telling
a lie and do no research on it. I am just saying that there IS ONLY ONE
CURE FOR AIDS, and the cure is JESUS CHRIST!

three times before since i have been sexually active and all test came
back negitive... thank GOD I know he has been walking with me holding
my hand all the way through.. and it honestly has taken a lot of courage
to go back in everytime to get results and now that i look back i really
didn't have too much to worry about but now i think i did it.... I promised
myself and GOD that i would take care of myself if he just took care of
me this time... i said it time after time and i really just lied to myself
and to HIM. I asked my parner if he had any test done and he was sooo
sure ..so i don't know..i keep asking hime but i just don't know... I
am just terified and i've been crying the past few days but last night

hi to all,
location : Australia
Firstly i do not have aids but sadly the girl of my dreams does.. She
was raped although she is only a carrier at the moment we dont know when
that could change i meet her online 6 months after the incident and fell
in love i knew she felt the same way about me but couldnt understand what
was holding her back after talking to her friend aswell and getting to
know her better i found out she showered several times a day but always
washed her hands me and her friend discussed this and i came to the conclusion
she felt dirty so my first instinct was she had been raped i put this
to her friend and it all made sence i then to a big risk knowing she had
a secret from me and everyone else in her life i told her what ever it
was that i would stand by her and so would her family she dissapeared
for several days then came back online after some heated discussion she
got her friend to come in the room and siad to me in front of her friend
'whats the worst thing a person could do to u' still following my instincts
i said rape she then said thats only half of it i thought for a bit then
remembering her reactions when we talked about fate i clicked so did her
friend she then left the room her friend contacted her family and informed
them .. i cryed for hours on end cause all i could think was my angel
had fallen... i fell even more in love with her and to this day ive been
trying to convince her i want to be with her i do and well she knows this
but its to hard for her i know im winning i know ill make her happy i
know i want to spend the rest of my life with her and i know i can do
i have been studying aids and read into heaps about cures im lead to believe
that there are several cases where doctors and sicientists have isolated
several possible cures one being the promotion of t-cells in the body
which attack the aids virus now there are several others but instead of
trialing these or completing further testing these people have been shut
down by the government...
thats right i now believe a cure could be found soon but why would they
create a cure when they make billions of dollars a week on medications
and treatments now this sickens me that they would let millions of innocent
people die all because of money ... hey i may be wrong but seriously think
about it .. u must understand i will do anything to be with this gurl
even if it means loosing everything i have...

This is a testing story. I've been through the torment of uncertainty
and testing twice before but I haven't learned from my mistakes. I'm sometimes
am convinced I am self destructive or totally lack control-in-the-moment.
This will be my third time going through the motions of fear and uncertainty
before finding out whether I am HIV positive or not. Currently, I am negative.
However, I recently had a sexual partner whom I just found out from my
doctor gave me gonohrrea and now I'm worried about what else he could've
given me. Of course I know that the chances of transmission are relatively
small, but I'm still freaking. I'm paranoid about health related things
naturally so its to be expected but if anyone needs someone to talk to
I'll be more than happy to hear from you. I've been contemplating going
to an HIV/AIDs support group even though I'm not positive, but if anyone
wants to email and we'll make each other chill out a bit and think of
the bigger picture that would be awesome.

My name is pete and
i have been diagnosed pos for just over a year.I was taken in to hospital
with what thought was a chest infection.I was diagnosed with advanced
hiv,my cd4 count was 4, i had an extremly heavy viral load and i had pcp.I
started treatment right away which i am glad to say i responded to remarkably
well.My cd4 count is now 150 and my vl is undetectable.Though i have this
illness i consider myself lucky to be on treatment,for when i see images
on tv of people, esp.kids it breaks my heart to see them.The only problem
i am encountering in this country is that all support services and organisations
seem to be dedicated to helping gay men and women.It is hard to deal with
as i feel like a minority within a minority. Where do we go to have our
voice heard. If anybody else is experincing this problem please say.

I had read many
stories and i can understand them all and life is so important no matter
is you are hiv+ or hiv- just another beautiful day is a blessing. I pray
for everybody i too can related to be alone has been an still is but in
time i know that will change nothing never stay the same we just has to
work at it a little more. People easy to judge an that when it come a
problem, sometime we keep being hiv+ because we feel we not worthy of
nobody love but we are.We dont wants other to look down on us but their
no shame to let people know that we are hiv+ because all made mistake
an our lives but sometime other made mistake towards us but we still alive
an life always worth living and we need to have someone in our corneran
if someone truly love they be with you no matter. The harder part is to
say good by to our love one but still you know that they wants us to live
on so we must do so.Everyday is a gift so so many wish that they can have
just one more day. Think postive even when you know the day is bad.

Hi, im a 17 year
old female and ive been with two guys. Lately ive been hearing so many
things about aids and hiv and how so many woman are contracting hiv from
sexual partners that are on the "down low". A little while ago
I found out my one partner was bi sexual and this made me really paranoid.
I messed around with him one time and he actually just stuck it in and
right back out one time we didnt even have sex all the way. I got tested
this tuesday and now I have to wait for the results till next tuesday.
Im so nervous there is so much I want to do with my life. I want to be
succesful and have kids and a husband one day.I will diffently make better

I got my test results today. I tested negative. I am so relieved.
Getting tested is one of the hardest things I have ever had to do, but
I am glad I did it.
All of you should require HIV testing before you are intimate with anyone.
If he/she won't get tested then he/she is not worth it. If you are going
to have sex without testing, ALWAYS USE PROTECTION. If he won't wear a
condom, it is not worth it.

Dear Carolina, By

with other aspects of their lives, including their sexual orientation
and HIV status.
It would be wonderful if some of your readers/visitors could join us in
person for our HIV storytelling weekend.
Please add our site http://www.gayspiritculture.org
