How Often Do You Think About Being Poz And How Do U React?

How Often Do You Think About Being Poz And How Do U React?

Well as for me I think about it at least 2 times a day not everyday but some what every other day... all I can think about is who got me infected and the more I think about the more I loose my self... but when I'm having a great day i don't even think about it.

Doesn't necessarily mean the last person you were with gave it to you. Could have been 3, 4 or even 5 people ago. Like I said it doesn't matter who gave it to you, it could have been anyone.

I really don't think of it now days I take my medicine as if nothing mind you I take other medication for other health issues. @AlexlMonroe562 when I first was diagnose I was " Wow, what am I going to do I have two girls that need me and I'm pregnant. I was bedside myself, I was told I had to make a quick decision regarding my pregnancy. I decided to take a shower one night and I pray and cry I spoke to God and told him that the first though I have in the morning it will determine what I would do. Next morning my first thought was I wanted to give my unborn a chance. Then I decide to write a letter to My Virus letting it know that I am in control and not the virus." Till this day, 26 years later I still don't let it control me and believe it has try. So be strong, forgive the person (for your peace) and get up shake it off and enjoy life. Happy Thanksgiving!

I think about it like others have said every time I get my alert to take my medications. Sometimes when I am down and depressed I think about it, I wrote something when I was diagnosed called the killer, I will see if I can find it.

I think about it once a day, when I take my pill. After I swallow the pill, I do not think of it anymore.
At this point, it doesn't matter who gave it to you. You have it. End of story. The more you worry about who gave it to you, the more stressed you'll be and stress is not good with hiv. It happened, it's in the past, now you need to move forward and go on. Live your life, don't keep looking back. It won't change anything. You don't have to forgive the other person who gave this to you, but you can forgive yourself and you'll feel much better. it all starts with you.

It's been seven years for me. I've come to a point of knowing I'm fortunate to be healthy and I'm not fearful but have confidence that by sharing others will benefit. Being HIV+ is a part of me, it's inside me but does not consume.
