My Gf Got Aids

 Looking back it was all so obvious - if we knew the syptoms.

Repeating coughing flu and fevers - the doctors just gave more antibiotic and it would go away then come back later. She felt tired a lot, no energy and got diarrohea sometimes and thrush usually. Only when she had her so hight temp and so weak we took her to the hospital and yes she had pneumonia and yes she also had low CD4 - 15 only !

I made sure she got local specialist help then helped her get onto the drug progam of her own country. Now we still live together and she is amazingly healthy and full of energy. Of course she has to take meds every day but thats no prob.  They say people have survived already from the 80s with careful programmes - so why not survive 40+ years - especially if the meds keep improving. In fact why should there be a limit ?

She is only 21

And she gave it to me.

Well now both of you are stuck together

I'm 21 and the love of my life possibly gave it to me. Every time I think I want to get tested I punk out and run the other way. My educational guess is I have it after finally opening my eyes. I am sick continuously and choose to ignore my symptoms but i know and can sense my body changing.

hey , frightening as it is now, just do it, get tested, know your status and if needed tyake the meds. i have loads of hiv friends k=live normal lives but dont get sicker than you need to !

I'm going to try Monday!

I caught Aids myself and had menengitis....it definitly changes your life...it becomes scary with no support because the world is full of vultures ready to pounce on the weak....I used to be strong and aids has left me weak.......its not fun...

Well I fully understand and this world is very cold but you can always talk to me.
