Do you think your addiction had a part in getting HIV? How did you find support? Are there any groups for those of us that are HIV positive and struggle with addiction?
I have known I am HIV + since July 2016. I have been reluctant to date because I am afraid to divulge my status due to the stigma associated with the disease. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Does anyone else have issues and struggles with weight control? Been going to gym etc still having hard time losing
Unfortunately, I have been rejected several times when I disclosed my HIV status....so, I’ve given up. I no longer wanted to be rejected and after a couple of times, I began to feel unwanted.
It’s been 8...9 years since I’ve been with anyone. I’ve simply stopped dating.
Has anyone else felt the same way? Has HIV stopped you from even trying to date?
Hope everyone had a good day.
What is your biggest struggle being HIV positive?

Is this possible and if it's not, what can advice can i give him?
So who has dated since finding out they were positive?
I am going on a date with a girl I've known since high school tomorrow. She knows I'm positive, but not necessarily what I'm looking for! I'm going to get practice! Is that messed up? She knows I'm not serious. I have found since being positive, dating hasn't been my first priority. I need to break that ice though. Is anyone else the same way?
