40something gay guy with a chequered past



Why I tested

Having lived in London for a long period of my life and having had a very active sex life, not always practicing safer sex, not knowing the status of the people I met and sometimes not even knowing their names, I was hiding my head in the sand by not testing for over 5 years. I was just afraid and worried about the stigma of living with a positive diagnosis. I wanted a mechanism to have control over my test and my result and then choose how to handle that information. The test worked for me. I could do it in my own time and in private. I could process the information for myself and work out what to do next. This service has worked for me. I have the control and I have the knowledge. I feel empowered and no longer sticking my head in the sand. Thank you, thank you very much.
