Embracing the truth about being HIV-positive can do more than just give you strength; it also allows you to be in control of your health and how you live life in the future. However, it is not easy to come to terms with having a condition like HIV. It can bring different kinds of feelings and thoughts. More importantly, you may be in doubt on whether or not to disclose your status.
Busi, a 21-year old girl, appears to be cool and relaxed, but what most people do not know is that she has the virus. She was sexually abused by her uncle since she was six until she was 9 years old when her gr andmother found out about it. After that horrible part of her childhood, she was told to go for a health check-up and get tested for HIV; and later found out that she was positive. Because she was too young then, she did not underst and what HIV was all about until she was fourteen.
Busi now appeals to HIV-positive people to get their status out in public and be in touch with reality. Positive living is the key to coping. Life insurance and medical treatments may be available for HIV patients, but it is still important to get support from people who are going through the same ordeal. Positive living is key to coping with the illness.
