Have You Been Tested?


There aren’t too many things that I like to see in the “negative”. Bank accounts? Who wants to see a negative bank account? Not me. Stocks in the negative? That’s almost as bad as a bank account with a negative balance. On the other hand, when you receive your negative HIV test results, it’s definitely something to be happy about.
Yesterday I received mine. Negative.
According to UNAIDS estimates, there are now 33.3 million people living with HIV, including 2.5 million children. During 2009 some 2.6 million people became newly infected with the virus and an estimated 1.8 million people died from AIDS. Started onย  December 1, 1988, World AIDS Day is about raising money, increasing awareness, fighting prejudice and improving education.ย Get tested. Know your status. Know your partner’s status.

    I can say that I’ve been tested, and passed with flying colors.

    I’m w/ you. I don’t like seeing anything in the negative… Well, most things.
    I’ve been tested on a regular basis for many years… Avoidance is not the answer, Ignorance is NOT bliss.
    This is a great vid. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I remember when AIDS was the “In” cause for celebs and politicos. It’s not like it used to be in ways that are good and bad.
