I still remember the day I went into the doctor for my routine checkup. I went through all of the general tests that someone my age might, and when the doctor returned to the room after being out to review the tests I had finished both that day and a few days prior, he had a very concerned look on his face. When he told me I tested positive for HIV, my entire life seemed to melt before my eyes. He continued to talk, yet I could not really hear anything. I just knew everything I had ever heard concerning HIV and it just is not good.
As I educated myself further on HIV, I realized my life did not end that day in the doctor’s office. In fact, by staying on top of my health, it really is possible to life a perfectly normal life. The medication used to treat HIV is something that has totally changed the game in recent years and nobody would ever believe I have HIV at all. It has been five years since I tested positive and I feel as good now as I ever had before h and. However, after testing positive for it I did decide to obtain life insurance, as I wanted to make sure my family would not be left with my final medical bills.
