One thing Im noticing is that being in denial about HIV or AIDS is dangerous. When we get in denial about our status, we tend to not be adherent to our treatments and stay up on our health. A lot of times I just want to forget my diagnosis and go back to life before all this…but I know I can’t. I’m trying to learn to be stronger and keep pushing myself to accept this. Anybody else having it hard accepting their diagnosis?

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)

    I was in denial for for a few weeks and realised i had to get on medication. I thought my life was over and contemplating suicide over it. A part of me still believes i will alone for the rest of my life because i cannot bring myself to tell someone i am talking to in fear of denial.

      getting past denial takes time and when you do, you will be able to tell someone you’re talking to. More people are understanding than you believe. Stay hopeful. 💕
