Diagnosed at 18

I found this site tonight searching for a site for singles in philly with hiv. For all those who think they might be positive or have symthoms I stongly suggest you get test right away.


I am hiv positive, diagnosted at the age of 18 and by the grace of god has lived to be 28 so far. I found out very early so I havent been faced with the challenge of take medication. I am not a good meds person so I know that will be hard for me but I half to do it. I have two wonderful children that I have no choice but to keep living for.


HIV has been a devistating factor in my life, I am very emotionally unstable and the man that infected me which is my childrens father doesnt make things any better. I loved him so much that when I found out i was able to except it on the strength of knowing that we will now always be together. I know that sounds sick but i had low self esteem and I wanted so bad to have a family. Any way, we just broke up after 10 years of abuse and drama and I feel low. I feel like someone stole my blanket and its cold. I dont want to be alone for the rest of my life but all my friends and family have faith that there's someone out there that will except me for me. I am having a hard time believing that but what choice do I have. Im still young, only 28 and still healthy. I always dreamed of being married and now my dreams have been deplinished based on my illness.


Even though I dont look at it like an illness at times. I kinda saved my life, made me straighten up and take life a little more serious. I warned all my friend and family about the danger. I just never thought this would happen to a girl like me but who knows why...god knows and who am I to question. I really feel worst for the people who have cancer. I just lost a cousin and I'm sitting in self pitty when I should be thanking god for my blessings. I could go on and on but I wont but stay strong, dont give up, and get tested before its to late.
