Adult hiv dating uk
I remember when the nurse told me it was a reactive test, I felt shivers all over my body.
She hugged me and told me she loved me and that everything was going to be OK.
I then received a text from an old sex partner who told me he had been exposed to an STI (gonorrhoea) so my partner and I went to get tested and in my case, treated, as I had been directly exposed.
I booked an appointment while my mother was visiting me in the country so the 3 of us went there together for what I thought would be a quick injection and a quick HIV test that would show I was negative, like it had done many times before.
I moved to this country approximately 6 years ago and work as a nurse for the NHS in a very prestigious London hospital.
I have lived most of this time in south west London where a big part of the gay community use drugs or ‘chemsex’ as a way of meeting people and having some fun. My relationship with drugs and sex got out of hand and started to affect to my work, my relations with friends and family and also my self-respect and well-being.
