the spectre of HIV

im shocked to find out a guy i used to see at the gym has passed away at the age of 30yo. no wonder i havent seen him in a while. we even almost had a moment years back. but it didnt progress beyond the initial pakiramdaman.

i didnt even know his name till a common friend mentioned his death. and when i googled, there i saw who he was. and im still in shock.

young and good looking, his life was cut short because of HIV.

it's real. it's here.

please, let's protect ourselves. no need for another young life to be cut short.

It's sad to hear stories such as this, especially when resources are readily available. I used to be a facilitator for Project 3-3-3 (3 Counties, 3 Health Issues & 3 Ethnicities) and it helps alot to spread the word (not the disease) especially to the younger generation. Thanks for putting the word out there CC. j0hnfl1p

yeah. It's sad really, I think I know the guy that you are referring to. Late Feb yeah?

What's sadder is that there are quite a few late 20s to early 30s dying of pneumonia but were not diagnosed, and will never be, with HIV because they never bothered to look for medical assistance. Of course, pneumonia as a cause of death at that age raises eyebrows and I think it is safe to assume something else.

nakakatakot, but if you are shield with info. you must not be... just be cautious.

most, if no tall, who died of pnumonia or meningitis, was due to LATE DETECTION. They tested positive late already.

Get tested... Early detection is worth it! Go to the Social Hygiene Clinic for free testing, or to other private hospitals... It will only cost around 700-1K.
