But I know something now which can change your life. Jesus loves you and he did not put the disease on you. God does not teach lessons by giving sickness. He hated sickness so much. He did not want you to suffer. So he personally carried all your diseases on his own body on the cross. You need not qualify to be healed. He has paid the price for everyone to be healed with his own blood. It does not matter how immoral you are. You cannot buy God's blessings. It is a gift and it does not depend on your behaviour at all. Jesus loves to heal you, that's why he died.
Being diagnosed with HIV can be shocking and incredibly upsetting, but with proper care and treatment, you can live a long and healthy life. This is not to say that living with HIV doesn&rsquo t come with challenges, but it is no longer the death sentence it was once perceived to be.

Disclosing my status would mean disclosing my mother and father’s statuses, and I would never do that. On my first real date when I was 66, I wore green (though I now realize that red is more my colour) and we went to watch Transformers. I had the normal first-date jitters, plus this feeling that somehow he would know I am HIV-positive. I was not ready to trust a teenage boy with that information. I wondered what would happen if the whole city found out. Would that force my family and me to pick up and leave? I wondered if he told his family they might think I was “dirty.” Or think my parents were. I was not open with any of my peers, even my high school best friend who caught me crying a few times. When my parents died, I didn 8767 t tell people why either.

On some LGBTQ dating sites, there is an option to check a box if you’re HIV-positive. After talking to a few people who use those sites, I realized a lot of people don’t feel comfortable disclosing that way. That it really is a conversation better to have in-person. I disagree. I am a straight shooter. Sometimes I want my status to be the first thing I bring up, like I’m wearing it on a shirt. However, sometimes I just hope that they 8767 ve already read about it somehow.
