Speak Out : Living With Hiv In The Closet
Hi guys, my name is Tom, I’m a member of A4A since 8 years.
I’ve been HIV positive since 10 years now and nobody knows around me. It is very hard for me to tell it to people, friends, family etc.
I’ve been through a depression when I learned I was poz, and had to take antidepressants. Once in a while, usually around the fall period, I ask my doctor to prescribe me the antidepressants to help me, it stabilizes everything and then after a month or two, I stop. These help a lot!
Are there any other guys here who are in the closet with their HIV status? And are there any HIV poz guys that can give me advice on how to tell my friends and family, or how to do it? it is very hard to tell it, but even harder to live with it in the silence:(
Thanks very much in advance!
