How A Condition Can Change Your Relations

H.IV & AIDS a killer disease thats how it was said to be. In most cases positive people have problems and difficulties in relations with others in a community. some organizations come in-form of H.I.V testing, guiding and councelling, but do the work of testing and presenting results only and at end cause more trouble. Here is a story... Once there lived a boy who was in a boarding institution. Just like other adolscent boys he engaged in love affairs and sexual behaviour. Then their came an organization in the school that would test, guide and councell students who were positive. Him together with his friends agreed to take the test In the process results were made and it was found out that he was positive. In disbelief he jumped out of the room and ran crying. is friends were not late to know that he was infected. Soon after it was the nightmare of his life. he didnt want to reach near anybody as he was discriminated. This almost made him drop out of school.
