Online dating hiv positive people Dirty chat that lets you hookup with a specific sex
A few weeks later I went to my GP with swollen glands, a sore throat and feverish chills.
He said the symptoms were similar to malaria, but I hadn't been abroad, so he suggested I have an HIV test to rule that out.
Those medics were amazingly supportive and reassuring from day one.
I knew very soon after being diagnosed that I wanted to as open and honest about my HIV as possible.
By the end of the year, 121 people are known to have died from it.
In some medical literature from the time it is described as a rare cancer.
Rachel Dilley, a 49-year-old charity worker from Harpenden in Hertfordshire, was diagnosed HIV-positive ten years ago.
Apart from the sense of relief at being completely open, I really saw a value in putting myself forward to help change those lingering misconceptions so many people have.Slowly friends and others from the village came up to me to give me a hug, buy me a drink and offer their support.I was tested positive for HIV two days later at Salisbury Hospital.So when I started feeling fluey, with muscular and joint aching, along with swollen lymph nodes, I knew something wasn't right.
I then did some research online and really had an inkling because of my symptoms that I might be HIV-positive.I just knew I was lucky to be diagnosed so quickly after infection, meaning any treatment would be more effective.
