when I was younger sleeping around seemed so innocent.....
    #4685822 - 09/20/05 01:11 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Not sure how many of you have been through this one.



I met a girl last weekend, we had sex, alot.


She got a call last night from her ex.

He just found out he is  HIV positive.

so she very well could be, as could I.


For some sic fucking reason it's going to take a week to get test results back for her, a week before we know. A week of sic twisted limbo.

Mabey, mabey not, could be bad, could be fine, don't know, just have to twiddle our thumbs and wait.

what a fucking trip.



I have so much going through my head right now it might be best to not share it untill I know for sure whats going on. I just don't know.


Moral of the story?

Turns out what they told us in health class was no bullshit. It's just not a good idea to sleep around these days. it's not worth it.


Be safe kids



Lovin you,
empty.

I love the mushrooms in your sig.


Thanks.  It's gonna be an interesting wait.

If it goes bad i'm going to drop out of school and move back to maui. I'f it turns out all cool, i've had a serious wake up call that must have been necessary, so either way the leaf falls, it's a blessing. It's just such a shock. Pulled me head first out of my perfect little world and introduced me to reality.

Trip.

Wrap it before you tap it. Can never be to shure. Although you should be cool. HIV is most often contractd through homosexual intercourse.

FALSE!

The CDC says: "Yes, it is possible for either partner to become infected with HIV through vaginal sex* (intercourse). In fact, it is the most common way the virus is transmitted in much of the world."

Try not to spread misinformation. :thumbdown:

Yes it is possible, however the chances for female to male transmission are much less.

Yes, less likely, but not unlikely!

The data may also be skewed by the fact that gay men are much more likely to get tested.

CDC says: 17% of males with HIV were infected through hetero sex. (vs. 63% through sex with other men & 20% from IV drugs/transfusions)

I don't know, I have known alot of people in my life and the only people I ever knew that were HIV positive were gay males.

Yes, as I said they are more likely to get tested, as well as more likely (along with bi-sexual men) to contract the virus.

As to the validity of your personal study, no matter how large your sample of friends might be, you're still looking at 17% (straight males) of a relatively small number of people.

The CDC study was an anonymous survey of 22,000 men who had tested positive for HIV.

It doesn't matter if straight men get tested or not.

If someone has it eventually they're gonna find out about it.

HIV can be symptomless for 10+ years. "Eventually" could be a long way away if they don't get tested.

The ex could just be fucking with her for some kind of weird revenge, but if not, HIV isn't really a death sentence. Look at Magic Johnson... I saw him on Leno about a week ago and he looks fine

You might not know for certain for a long time. Because once someone comes in contact with HIV it may takes weeks and months before they know 100 percent sure that there clean. Good luck to you.

so sorry to hear this man

i know some people are gonna call this bullshit but it definetly cant hurt

1.pray
2.visualize yourself filling with healing, cleansing white light
3. repeat the affirmation: i will be healthy or i am not hiv positive or whatever works
4. having done all this (all you can do) try to live in the moment. your not sick right now, your not dieing right now. Try and apreciate the blue sky and the warm sun and life in general. All life is fleeting, hiv or not. all that matters is you make the best of what time god gives you
5. WEAR A CONDOM FROM NOW ON
6. dont hesitate to go to a counselor, therapist or whatever to help deal with your feelings. HIV is not the end of life. Theres still so much more you can do.
7. if , god forbid, you come up positive, try and turn it into an advantage.  use it to straighten your head out. Your time is limited, so use it well. Trust me, 5 years lived to the fullest is better than 100 years squanderd. Make a list of all the things you want to do and do them, make your peace with yourself and god etc

sorry for giving you all this advice , i dont know if id even want to hear it in your situation

good luck and god bless WEAR A CONDOM DONT SPREAD IT TO ANY OTHER POOR SOULS

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein
