I have HIV.
November 20, 2012
Thank you for agreeing to talk with me. You’ve been there for me in the past, and I want to talk to you about something.
I went to the doctor recently. I got tested for HIV, and the test came back positive. It’s been very scary for me, and I needed to tell someone who I know cares about me no matter what and who I can turn to for support. I really need your support.
(The trusted adult you speak with may have questions, so it’s a good idea to have more information to share with him or her about HIV. Get more info on STDs on Sexetc.org or visit ASHA.org for more information on the transmission and treatment of HIV.)
