Get tested, Be safe

I AM A 27 YEAR OLD FEMALE WHO BECAME INFECTED WITH HIV IN 1997. THE SAME YEAR I GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL. I FOUND OUT WHEN I CARRING MY FIRST CHILD. OH WHAT A SHOCK. BUT THE SAD THING IS I WAS ONLY WITH 3 MEN BEFORE I CONCIEVED. I WANTED TO SHARE THIS STORY BECAUSE PEOPLE SAY "IT WON'T HAPPEN TO ME" I SAID THAT AND LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED. BUT MY STORY HAS A WONDERFUL ENDING. SINCE THEN I HAVE MARRIED A WONDERFUL MAN AND ALSO HAVE ANOTHER CHILD AND POSSIBLE WORKING ON A THIRD. I WANTED TO SHARE THAT A POSIVE TEST DOSEN'T MEAN THE END OF THE WORLD. I AM HAPPY, HEALTHY.( MY DOCTOR HAS INFORMED ME THAT I AM HEALTHIER THAT MOST HEALTHY PEOPLE) WITH MY 3 MEDICATIONS DAILY AND A WONDERFUL FAMILY AND GREAT SUPPORT, LIFE REALLY COULDN'T BETTER. I SIT BACK AND THINK ABOUT LIFE BACK THEN AND I WONDER WHY THIS HAPPENED TO ME BUT I THEN REALIZE THAT IF THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN I WOULDN'T BE WHERE I AM IN LIFE. MY HUSBAND OF 5 YEARS KNOWS OF MY HIV STATUS AND GETS TESTED EVERY 6 MONTHS AND THANK GOD A NEGATIVE TEST EVERY TIME. I HAVE TWO HEALTHY NEGATIVE CHILDREN AND I STRIVE SEE THEM GRADUATE FROM COLLEGE, GET MARRIED AND FOR ME TO BE GRANDMOTHER. WITH GOD AND MY FAMILY ON MYSIDE I WILL BE AROUND FOR A LONG WHILE. I AM REACHING OUT TO YOUNG PEOPLE BE CAREFUL. IT IS OUT THERE AND IT IS NOT A GAME. I WILL NOT PREACH AND SAYT DON'T HAVE SEX BUT I WILL SAY PROTECT YOUR SELF. PLEASE. GET TESTED. BE SAFE.
