Tell your story

Brighton girl



Just do it!!!

My dad worked with aids patients in the 80s/90s and took me to work with him. I built up a fear of HIV and aids even refusing an aids test when pregnant. After 15 years of fear since I had my child and daily worries thinking I’ve got HIV and thinking I’m on a death sentence as it would of affected my body so badly. I had a white patch on my gum and tongue that my dentist is ‘monitoring’ but for me I’ve had 8 weeks of intense regret, sadness thinking omg this is it it’s now taking over my body, sickness loss of weight I brought a bio sure test. I sat on it knowing when I felt strong enough I would do it. Well I did, it was easy, I was in control, so simple and clear. Please please anyone do the test if positive you can take control get the help and have a great chance of a wonderful long life if it’s negative you get your worry free life back. Win win. Thinking of you all out there with the fear and on the journey x
