Home > Experts > Question Question Posted by: 8 yrs | 2013/01/12 healthy living with hiv is possible hi guys, i just want to take this time & give hope to those ppl who hv just been diagnosed. I was diagnosed this month in 2005 @ the age of 22, i took it upon myself to learn as much as i could abt the virus. Wht i learnt is that Hiv is nt bad at all if u diagnosed early, that is why its NB 4 ppl 2 knw their statuses. When i was diagnosed my cd4 +-450 nw am at 859. My secret is acceptance, exercising, eating healthy, taking multivit (centrum in my case), take care of my spiritual life. Hv goals, continue dreaming, dnt stop living & wait 4 death. Stop blaming urself & others, always remind urself that God loves u no matter wht. When u r happy with urself everything just falls into place, careerwise u go places ur personal life also improves. Since my diagnoses i hv since graduated twice, bought properties, grown in my career. This is possible 2 all of us bt it starts with u...all the best 4 2013 Not what you were looking for?
