The virus I had inherited from my mother. Now I am 20 years old.The first three years I spent in the orphanage, but when the mother stopped taking drugs, she took me out.
In 10 years, she told me that I have HIV, at that age, I don’t really understand what it is and thought it was AIDS, but then everyone knew him die. I remember I cried because I didn’t want to die. But my mom explained that with this diagnosis live, however, you need a lifetime to take antiretroviral therapy (ART). This allows HIV-infected person to control the virus, with HIV not developing into AIDS .
After that, I started attending a support group, a gathering of HIV-positive adolescents. There we worked for our status. But the special effects from the group’s visit was not, because the first 2 years I tried actually not to think about it.
Well, you all knew. You couldn’t have. I don’t believe
At this point I broke down and cried. My head is spinning only one thought: Well, you know. You couldn’t have. I don’t believe. And he talked and talked. I heard only a lot of alcohol, Bangkok, and nightlife. And in the end, he added: Well, you know, activists are the most vulnerable.

A miracle happened, appeared pills
A month ago I was texting her friend about her mom. Her mother died from AIDS. And then she texted me: well, I’m a little restless, what is AIDS, after all, and suddenly I have such a fate will be. And she caps wrote: NEVER! We will never die from AIDS. WE just can’t. Your mom chose not to accept therapy. We need to accept it and respect her choice. Even if she dies.
If you asked me 11 years ago, I would have answered, YES, we will die from AIDS, and we are left hoping for a miracle. A miracle happened, appeared tablets. We have the ability to life. We will never repeat the fate of our parents. Never. We will not sit in jails, drugs drugs. We will be better than they are. We have no such choice, because we have opportunities. We ‘re the guys who died at the age of 10. HIV is a good lesson of life. We should make the most of it to take. In the end, her mother died.
HIV is not a disease, it is more about human behavior
I went and thought it was all some stupid nonsense. 21 in the yard, treatment, testing and prevention. Have the experience and best practices. But people still die from AIDS. After all, HIV is not a disease, it’s more about human behavior. About his responsibility. Responsibility in choosing health and awareness. But for some reason people are afraid to take it on yourself. Today 1 December, the Day of Struggle against AIDS. 30 years we’re fighting for. We don’t need to deal with it, we need to collectively help people to take their responsibility. And it must be done as quickly as possible. We have no more time. I’m not ready to lose any more of his friends to hear that they have become infected with HIV.
We must look for opportunities and resources as we do. To take responsibility and awareness. Only then will we be strong.
