What is your status?

Philip & Adam

January 29th, 2019

My boy friend and I are both infected with HIV. (I'm on the left and he's on the right). Adam took me to play bingo at a bar for our first date and towards the end I could tell he was really nervous about something. I couldn't put my finger on it because I was having an amazing time with him. When bingo ended and we were finishing our last drink he asked me if I knew my status, I said I was negative because that's what I believed. He told me he was positive and not for one second did that change How I looked at him or the wonderful time I was having with him. I told him "well that's something we can most certainly figure out when it comes time for it." On our fifth date we went to the clinic for me to be put on Prep. Little did I know I was already infected as well. I didn't know what to think and it wasnt helping that this man I just meet shortly before this was sitting right next to me He is very supportive and helps me feel better about it all the time. We make a good team, when ever one of us gets into a funk over it we know how to pull each other out of it. We have been together for 7 months now and are both undetectable! He is my life savor. I don't know how long it would have been for me to go and get tested again if it wasn't for Adam. I am greatful for him everyday. I want to use my voice and my story to help people realize how livable this virus can be. I also want to Help change the stigma that HIV gets. We love each other unconditionally and want to spread that love with everyone and anyone who may need it. ❤️
