Chat: Just a thought
Forum friends...
with the focus on HIV/AIDS today, there may be some who want to get tested. Although I think that knowing your status is best, I find that, at this time of the year, I need to give you some reasons not to test now.
It's the Festive season... and I'm sure there will be a lot of celebrating going on. If you go for the test now, the result may not be what you want it to be... can you deal with that? Do you want to know now and ruin your holiday?
Should you decide not to wait and have the test done, are you ready, mentally?
There is never a good time to be tested... just thought I'd give you something to think about.
God bless.

Food for thought, Inc ! ( the only sort of food that doesn't usually increase my weight ! ) Depending on how someone spends the Fesive season, they may have more reason for getting tested AFTER it, I suppose
