My story

Hey everyone I'm Jonathan, back on February 2nd I was scheduled to get lab work done at my doctor's office.

An unexpected result

They did the CBC (complete blood count) and CMP (comprehensive metabolic panel). They found out I have ITP (Idopathic thromcytopenia purpura) and while I was getting other lab work done, they did a HIV test and it back positive.

How has HIV changed since the 80s and 90s?

I grew up in the 80s and 90s and lost family and friends during that. I have been taking things day by day. I have been in and out of the hospital due to complications of the ITP.
