You sound like a good guy, and have a great attitude.
My father has been living with HIV for over 10 years. He is 61 this year and has more life and energy in him than men half his age..
Take care of yourself ok? But by the sound of things - you will be doing just that.
A bit off topic - but does anyone know how long it takes for HIV to 'take hold?'
I had an accident (or 2) in Bangkok with my Thai gf that was a massage girl (ie sex worker). When I came to Taiwan I had to get a blood test 2 months later. If I had HIV, would it have showed up in that test?
Thankfully it was negative, but after reading the bravery and attitude of this guy and the info in this thread, I dont think it would be such a devestating thing to find out anymore...
