It's easy to consider HIV as separate from your reality and, therefore, not a threat to your health. Many people living with HIV do so in secret; never revealing their status to their friends and family. This, along with improved medications, has created an environment where people falsely believe that HIV isn’t a part of their world. Don’t be naïve. HIV continues to spread and you are just like everyone else — at risk for HIV.
So get tested, talk about prevention with your friends and your partner, and be aware of the risks you face. Your sexual health depends on it.
