We had planned to meet at the weekend, new guy said he was so excited to meet me. I was so happy, could this new guy be any more of a fit for me? I assumed that as he worked in health care he was just more educated on the matter and it didn’t concern him. In the UK that’s 97 per cent of all of us diagnosed and on treatment.
I asked new guy if he’d read the article, he said no. Maybe I was being naïve, how could someone possibly know and not ask me about it? he said he’d read it on his lunch and message me then. When are three letters not going to stop the conversation? But until more people know this me and countless other women will face rejection after rejection when we choose to share our HIV status. I want to be able to say ‘I’m HIV undetectable’ and they just go ‘okay’ and we move on.
I’ve put a link to an HIV article in my bio and I ask people to read it. I’ve seen it before, I’ve walked this path before and it’s like I’m in last night’s dress, smeared makeup, hungover and everyone can see.
It includes the information – which is backed up by evidence and two major studies, as well as endorsed by Terrence Higgins Trust – that because I’m on effective treatment I can’t pass on HIV, with or without a condom. And if my love life (and its challenges) has got you to read this, then please click off knowing what I really, really want you to know: people living with HIV and on effective treatment can’t pass it on to sexual partners. They won’t take the time to read information about it.
