"I have kept it a secret from my friends all these years. I am sure most of them don't have any idea."
I have been diagnosed since 1989. Of course I have gotten sick just like anyone else but my overall health has been excellent. The biggest downside for me has been stress, and self-esteem issues. The biggest questions are ‘who do I tell?’, and ‘who would want to be with me in a serious relationship once I let them know?’
So I have kept it a secret from my friends all these years. I am sure most of them don't have any idea. Living with HIV for the past 19 years hasn't really affected me to the extreme. I guess it's just a pebble that has fallen in my river and journey through life.
