So I've seriously been thinking... In October, 2015, I started to get REALLY sick. Couldn't hold food down, always nauseous or in the bathroom. Six ER visits and they still couldn't figure it out. GI did several tests, stool samples, the whole nine... still no idea. Two months later they determined my gallbladder needed to be removed.
Fast forward to May, 2016, seven months from onset of not feeling well, I was diagnosed as HIV positive. I am PRETTY SURE I was never tested for HIV and I seriously started thinking, were all my issues caused by the introduction of HIV into my system? Was I in the seroconversion phase?! Should I still have my gallbladder?!
I'm no doctor but I definitely think there's a connection.
Moral of the story, why isn't HIV general practice? Just because I'm a heterosexual woman and was at the time in a relationship, doesn't mean, pardon my french, shit!
When will society understand, no one is immune!?
