HIV/AIDS Stories..

Hmmm....
This post is for those who are carrying the Virus around .........







How did you contact it?
Are you taking the required shots and keeping it safe or spreading it?Are you angry?How do you feel?
Are you married?

Whats your advice for those who have it and think their lives have ended?

186 comments:

  1. It is not the end of the world. Do not despair or be ashamed. Take your medication religiously and you'd live longer than those not carrying the virus. Cheers

    2. Many are carriers without knowing o,but they will be here awwing, I pity unna, the earlier you know the better,it will enable u to live a long life,that is if u don't die if other causes,like accident, armed robbery, boko haram,etc.hiv is just a status you can live with if detected earlier, and forger all this ppl saying are is dangerous, I know ppl who have been on it for decads,just adhere to us drugs and u will be fine

    3. I just want to ask a quick question, if someone has recently contracted the virus and doesn't know they are positive yet, are there signs that the person will be having? Will the individual be getting sick? I need an answer pls

    4. Go and get tested! That's the only sure fire way of knowing.

    5. Just before i got into my relationship, and sensing where it is leading to, i decided to take all the necessary tests, HIV being one of them. Yup, although i have been a mermaid for awhile, and i have taken the test before, you just want to confirm all is well/ working properly. The first time I did it a few years ago, bought oralquick rapid hiv kit, and used it, hmmmmmm the waiting kills you. Lol.

      The fear of not knowing kills you faster than the virus. I've been careless before with someone I dated for 5 years during/after undergrad, and okafor law took place even after we'd broken up, so you never know.

      Get tested please. Yes it is not the end of the world, but wouldn't you rather know?

    6. I'm sure I got it through sexual intercourse and I am sure of who I contracted it from. I didn't confront him though.simply moved on with my life. I was young and in school and sleeping with men for extra cash to pose as a big girl in school was the IT thing.I wouldn't say I was a runs girl because these were people I actually dated (3 men during the course of my uni). Only difference is that I actually didn't date them for love, it was for the money.my parents don't know till today,my siblings do and they've been supportive all the way. I was in denial during the first few months..kept praying I would do a retest and it would be negative.I accepted it with time.I have never been ill sInce then..though it was a terrible illness that led me to discover mu status.I take my drug daily(morning and night) and I've been taking life one day at a time. I'm not angry at myself anymore, I'm just scared I might not find a man who loves me for real. My boyfriend at the time I found out my status broke up with my shortly afterwards(I told him as soon as I found out. He is -ve) . I'm 24, currently job hunting,trying to get my spiritual life on track and discover my life's purpose generally.thinking of setting up a business this year as well.I am sure I would have kids when God blesses me with enough income for all the complex and expensive medical processes.I've decided that even if marriage doesn't come my way,I'll be a mum! The only advice I have to everyone reading this is to get tested.I've seen people beyond recovery simply because they didn't know. Knowing your status is a big deal!with your medication and good lifestyle you can leave as long as people without the disease.Those already diagnosed, please don't stop taking your meds. People have died because some man of god prayed for them and asked them to stop taking their med. Hiv medication works this way:it slows down the replication of the virus in your body thereby preventing(delaying) you from developing full blown aids which is the final life cycle of the hiv virus. The meds hv a strong disadvantage.. you can't stop once you start. If you do, it's like reversing all the progress you made while you were on the meds. In fact, the councillors in the hospitals ask you repeatedly if you're sure you're willing to commit to taking the meds.if you're answer is no or maybe they advice you not to start at all. Hiv positive mothers who are pregnant,please do not breastfeed that bundle of joy God will give to you. Don't make that mistake. You're child would get infected from your milk..it's not folklore. I've met a couple of hiv positive mums who breastfeed their hiv negative babies because in their words(God won't allow the child to suffer).please don't be naive I beg you. Taking your meds would shield the child from the virus whilst in your womb but once the child is birthed,it's your responsibility to keep that child safe! There's life after testing positive.. I shudder when I hear about those who took their lives. I understand everyone's tolerance level isn't the same but I think testing +ve should be a motivation to want to live right and well for that matter! God help us all..Remember to get tested if you haven't! Sorry for any typos

    7. I admire your courage but where you get it wrong, an HIV +ve woman can successfully breastfeed her baby without the baby contacting it, make your research.

      Delete
    8. Madam,

      She is correct. HIV +ve woman can infect her baby with the virus through breastfeeding. At least I would know this since I am a Doctor.

      Thank you.

    4. I heard of a lady who was a working class that had her three kids falling ill every now and then. It now happened that they just decided to test them for hiv only to discover that the three were infected. Their parents were not. They tested the help and she was +ve. They discovered that the househelp was using their toothbrushes to brush her teeth. No particular person's own being used. The woman had to quit from her job and start taking care of her kids. This happened like 3-4yrs ago in this Lagos. Location:withheld

    4. We practice safe sex but because I take care of my self and my viral load is undetectable I can hardly transfer it to my husband,a woman is more prone to the virus than a man meaning it's harder for a man to get,I only have unprotected sex when I want to get pregnant in my fertile days,my husband is very supporting and understanding he is my consolation..

  7. I remember a guy that lived with us many years ago.
    He was a very pathetic casanova who eventually got the killer virus, did he stop? No! Instead he intensified his game and started visiting different barbing saloon spreading the virus, he eventually died.

  9. I know of a camerounian man in the UK, named Kaolo and who is HIV. The guy and his wife look healthy because they are religiously taking their medicines as prescribed.
    The only problem is that Kaolo is very bitter about having been infected with the virus and has decided not to die alone.
    The money he gets from doing 419 and other illicit activities is used to lure women with expensive gifts and trips. Indeed, when you spoil women with money, a few will be blinded and accept to sleep with men without using protection. That's how the man is spreading the virus all over London. When i get his full name, not his nickname, i will report him to the Police.

  10. Thanks Stella for this opportunity ... Have never told any1 Abt this.
    My lovely mother died of HIV! How she contracted it that I donno but the most shocking part of Ulithi is that my elder Sis has been diagnosed of HIV.
    My Sis called me sometimes in 2012 that she is HIV positive 😳 I cried and cried and asked God why???? I asked her how it happened and we both remembered when my mum was sick and the nurse that came to treated her gave my elder sis the needle used in injecting my mum to go throw away! That was how my sis became +++. But the good news is that ... She has a set of twin! A boy and a girl both negative.
    May God help us!

    2. Well my dad was a community penis before his death who ended up infecting my mom, may her sweet soul rest in peace 😢😢 and now I just found out my my younger one, who is the baby of the house was unfortunate to escape it. Well, it's my cross and I'll gladly carry it. His cd4 is high and I make he feeds well with nutritious meals, take him to the hospital regularly. What amazes me the most is that no one apart from my mom knew his status and he was never on any rvd. I drilled him severally to know is my mom used to give him any special drug and he said no. The doctors were amazed that his cd4 was that high without being on rvd. How is ds even possible. Well I know God will heal him. He cannot suffer for the sins of the father. I have faith in God's healing power.

      Delete
    3. I'm a health worker and our facility is a comprehensive HIV site, its true his cd4 might be high, but the real indicator now is da viral load. But to help him the more u should give him some drugs like livergad or livoline for his liver to help his Alt and creatinine count. Immunace is extremely good for his immune system. Green vegetable is good but he should stay away from alcohol, kola of any specie, herbal medicine and excess sugar. Good food, rest and regular exercise is essentially good for PLWHIV.

She knew early enough to start taking her meds but her and mum said it was spiritual attack and they started going from one church and babalawo to another. Until she finally died in 2011. First symptoms she said was typhoid and she started having massive boils in her privates.

Hiv isnt a death sentence and its manageable as long as you take care of yourself as supposed. People are dying everyday from more terrible diseases. And no im nit spreading, that would be inviting the wrath of God. Im healthy and alive and sometimes i even forget i have the virus. Im not angry anymore and i live a happy life with my family.

    4. The HIV levels in South Africa is one of the highest in the world (yep! Go to United Nations sites and check the statistics).
      The peoples refusal to use condoms, the ease of getting sex (an average SA girl will fuck you for a R100 or free drinks and will go home with you within 15 mins of toasting), the advent of blessers (aristos), the fact that being married doesn't mean that you will not follow another man home, the high rape and animalistic primal sexual nature of men and women ensure that HIV will always be prevalent here.
      The government has tried to provide retro viral drugs but the masses have started using it to make drug cocktails to get high.
      South Africans are something else

    2. Biko don't say what you don't know o! That figure you gave there is very very wrong!also HIV and Aids isn't a punishment from God..if it were how would you justify that of a dutiful housewife who got the virus from a randy husband? I volunteered for ENR in 2014 and I remember a survey they carried other then in conjuction with NACA. Results then showed that 49% of HIV burden came from married and co habiting couples! Yes, the married and co habiting ones contributed almost half of the HIV burden then, while female sex workers(FSWs), injecting drug users(IdUs) and men sleeping with men (msm) made up the other part.
      Anyone can get the virus! This attitude of discrimination and condemnation is aiding the spread of the nasty virus. Let's stop the discrimination! Spread the message, not the virus!

      Delete
    3. U might be right to an extent, but da percentage is exaggerated. It is common with gays, that is why most of the funds coming from the united states and UK are owed by some gay organization to help PLWHIV.

    4. It is even the casual people, casual heterosexual people who are at a higher risk of HIV. Sex workers know d danger of their work nd use condom, so also gay guys. Be safe.

  21. This post is a good one. We all need to be reminded about the reality of this virus. A former colleague of mine tested positive to hiv 1 and 2 during routine office medicals. It didn't stop her from spreading it through her prostitution. She wasn't taking medication and she was even doing threesomes with her friends and white lover. They all didn't know her status. I was tempted to expose her. A white man even took her to south Africa sef. I wonder if she is still alive

    4. Being positive isn't a death sentence. In Nigeria we have NEPWHAN- Network of people Living with HIV and Aids. It's a legit group recognised by the government and it's in every state of the federation. Also go to your state SACA...e.g SACA means State Agency FOR THE Control of Aids. That of kaduna is called KADSACA, and each state of the federation has a SACA. You can also get information from NACA which is the national body coordinating for all the States SACA.
      There are a LOT of NGOS; foreign and local working in his field e.g Sfh, Action Aid, Fhi360, CIHP, etc, lots oof them! You can Google and get information you need.
      I really miss working in this field and I want to get back in. I'll raid as many offices as I need to in Portharcout until I get a placement to work in this field again...

    10. Anon. 18:14 some clinics or hospitals that offer hiv tests & arv usually encourage hiv+ people to live their name and number to be linked.
      Also if you belong to a group you might meet someone there.
      From experience, I have also discovered that taking cold pressed virgin coconut oil alongside ARVs to increase the cd4 count thereby lowering the viral load.
      It's not a cure obviously.

  27. People take their drugs religiously and are as healthy as can be. If they are too sensitive to a drug, they go back, talk to the doctor and it is changed. You feel angry with someone for having beaten you up and you go about beating up anyone you can easily beat? There are many people intentionally spreading the virus and I wonder why? Are they that wicked? I believe it is either to direct your bitterness towards whoever gave it to you or disappoint the person by taking your drugs so well that the person will wonder whether you have the virus. The rate of intentional spread is alarming. Devil do pass this before we all hate am? It makes one think that the number of infected persons will rise again until a point where the developed world will have to specially take our case up. Black man just does not want to develop!!!!!! And they say the virus mutates like mad. As people sleep around trying to donate, they may come across others with all kinds of strains and mutations, and guess what?; problems may arise because someone who seems to be healthy suddenly starts having problems as though the drugs are no longer working. Na so I understand am o.

  30. Found out I was hiv+ in 2005. But I believe I got infected around 2003 because I had some crazy cystic acne and rashes at my back which refused to go no matter what I did from that 2003 until 2005 when up found out. I started my regimen. I confronted the man who infected me he denied but I know it is him. Have left him to God and have moved on with my life. As soon as I stated my meds the acne cleared. I got married about a year later. Have 4 sons all birthed via C- section. All exclusively breastfed for 3 months without even water ( cos you must not in anyway mix feed when breastfeeding with hiv) as soon as I take them off the breast they never go back to it and I only breastfeed for 3 months. My viral load has been undetectable for 10years+ my kids are not infected. My spouse is not infected and he doesn't know I am a Carrier. I have never had safe sex with him. I don't drink, or smoke. I am as fit as a fiddle and rarely fall ill except for occasional bouts of malaria.
    I do not even remember I am a carrier my drugs feel more like vitamins to me.
    Eat very health and avoid anything that could be toxic to me. I don't think this disease can kill me. Something else maybe but I have long conquered hiv. Thanks Stella for this platform. Btw I got infected at the 20 I believe.but found out around the age of 22.

    12. This is what we call zero discordant couple where one spouse is positive and another is negative. It happens. Most times there is a point sm1 who is always taking his drug wil reach, d person won't b able t infect anoda. HIV women who are on drugs are allowed to breast feed even till 6months or more.

    13. Hence u are religious with your drugs, eat healthy and exercise regulargy, the chances of transmission is always zero, her husband on his own part might have been taking good care of himself. We have so many couple in our facility that either da man or woman is negative but that are happier coz they know the situation at hand and even help da one with da virus with keeping of time to medication. The main issue with da drug is adherence, keeping to the exact time da person is suppose to take the dose.

  32. I wish you all carrier strength and courage. Those spreading the disease, please stop the evil acts before the wrath of God will befall you.

    Those having unprotected sex, please deviate from it. Married men and women having illicit affairs, stop it. Think about your children! would you like them to grow up without their parents? How sure are you that your sisters, brothers, cousins, uncles and aunties will be able to take good care of them after your departure?

    Please lets be cautious of the things we do. Ladies, get packets of needles while going to your favourite salons. Needles are very cheap, but HIV/AIDS drugs are very expensive. Don't allow your hair stylist use his or her needle without treating it.

    Needle treating machine is very cheap as well.

    Stop spreading the disease.
    Is not a dead sentence.
    Go and get tested to know your statues.
    God be with you all.

    2. It's easy for you to judge. Until you find yourself in similar situations or even worse. I don't pray that for you. My husband fathered my kids. I said I have never had safe sex with him meaning (protective sex)
      You are allowed to breastfeed your kids but there are precautions you must follow. Who he are but not limited to:
      1. You musnt mix feed, meaning not even water would be given to the child apart from the breast milk. And the day you stop breastfeeding and introduce something else, you must not go back.
      2. Avoid nipple cracks.
      Now when you birth a child as a HIV+ mother your child takes preventative ARVs for the first 6 weeks of their life. It's similar to the one give to victims of rape to prevent the virus getting in to their system just Incase of exposure.
      The medications are not as complex as you are all made to believe depending on your regimen. My regimen consist of 3 drugs made into one tablet which is taken one in the morning and one at night.
      Most of us take vitamins do your vitamins get investigated?most HIV+ people don't keep their mess in its original bottle they transfer it to another bottle. Say for instance you transfer it to a zinc supplement bottle Abi?
      There are a lot of preventative measures you can take to ensure your partner doesn't get infected. If I have been with him for about 11ywars and have never used condom and he is not infected and I have breastfed my kids for 3months exclusively each and they are happy healthy and negative I think what j am doing right should be asked not printing at what I have done wrong.
      If I had told him would I have had this beautiful kids I have no? Would I have found the comfort and solace of family and peace ? No!
      I may have been somewhere dying as a result of the stigma of my disease and probably committed suicide or died of depression.
      I agree it is not proper to have not informed him, but until you have walked in shoes like this you don't know what it is. No member of my family knows this either. Not a single soul and one of my parents is a medical doctor and even him I can't tell what I am suffering. That is the extend of the stigmatization and blame attached to this.
      My infection was an unfortunate incident like I said I got infected at 20. While someone easily said 'only God knows what I was doing at 20 that got me infected' well, I was raped.My parents are strict they blamed my rape on my carelessness.
      We can all learn from this. Some of you have prayed for my husband to find out, well if he does, he is not under any obligation to be with me. I would apologise and move on free at least from the fear of him finding out Abi?
      What you people don't know is that even most of the doctors in Nigeria help you hide your status from your partners cos they are also aware of the damage it causes you and the comfort and healing that home brings to you.
      I have never cheated on him, would never do and I worship the ground he walks on.
      If he chooses to leave me I can proudly say aside from my misfortune he can never find another woman like me. (He says it himself and those around him to)
      May we all find ourselves free from secrets. It is tough, it is hard but not everyone wishes to act a certain way.

  45. 20th December, 2010, met a pretty young woman on a BA London to Lagos flight, eyed her at the lounge but she was totally engrossed in her mag. As fate would have it, we ended up sitting beside each other on the flight, got acquainted, exchanged numbers and all; We were both going home to celebrate Christmas with our folks so we didn't get to see in Lagos but still kept in touch. Fast forward to January 2011, both back to base, we met up a couple of times for drinks and along the line, feelings and emotions got involved. We steadily progressed to house visits and sleep overs but all the while, she never allowed me smash, tried all the gimmicks in the book but nothing happened, she was always super conscious of her privates area. After many days and nights of fruitless efforts, I started acting up but the truth that I couldn't deny was that I was falling hopelessly in love with each passing day. The cycle continued till a day in April which happened to be my birthday.

  49. hello Stella.....i got addicted to your blog some weeks back and i must say am impressed.While my head spin at WNB and COBV i must say this post has made my Month.

    To cut long story short,my kid sis who is a virgin found out on her birthday this year that she is HIV +.(for some doubting thomases,Virgins do exist and how i know ots true is story for another day).

    A couple of days back i heard she was so depressed and talking about death.I have sent her the link to this post so that she can reqd testimonies of people living with HIV and living WELl.
    My sister is a fashionista and her frequent trips to the Salon brought this upon her.To avoid spreading it shr had resorted to wearing wigs only.

    Its good to abstain from sex or use protection but dont neglect sharing sharp objects etc.

    She is on ARV now and i escorted her to get her drugs the other day anf My God i saw ovet a hundred people both younh and very old waiting to collect their drugs.
    HIV/AIDS is real people and just its hard for them its also hard for the family members to live with the truth.My dad doesnt know till date.
    Life is not fair at all,while i have lost body count(not proud of it though) someone that vowed to keep herself is faced with this.
    Gods ways are not our ways,he is a merciful God.I pray he visits all those looking upto him for a divine healing.Amen
