HIV Diagnosis: Robert’s Story
An HIV diagnosis may be an unexpected shock, or it may have been something that you were worried about and suspecting for a while. It may take some time for the news to sink in, but facing your diagnosis will help you carry on from a position of strength.
Hear how Robert was diagnosed as HIV-positive in his early thirties, following the break-up of a long-term relationship. Acting on a nagging feeling in the back of his mind, Robert decided to get tested three days before he was due to give a talk at a UK HIV/AIDS conference. After being told he was HIV-positive, he turned his diagnosis into a positive experience as he shared his status with all the conference attendees.
