I am 34 and was raped when I was 10. Since then, I’ve been having sex with any person I meet.

Now I am HIV-positive but I can’t stop saying yes to men.

Please help me.

Such a traumatic experience at such a tender age, when you can’t even comprehend what is happening to you, can leave you with permanent scars and prone to bizarre behaviour.

You should have received proper counselling and support after the ordeal you went through.

You need to go to a voluntary counselling and testing centre, where they will talk to you about taking care of yourself now that you are HIV-positive.

You can also call the National Aids Helpline on 0800-012-322.

I also suggest you call LifeLine on 0861- 322-322 or 011-715-2000 to book a counselling session regarding your rape and the problems it’s caused you.

You can also join their adult survivors’ group.
