I met a really nice guy a few months ago and because our relationship started to get more serious I wanted to make sure I didn’t have an STD. I made a doctors appointment to get tested on a Friday. Wednesday morning after I got tested I received a phone call from the doctor’s assistant. She asked if I could come over that same day. Because I work on Wednesdays I asked her if I could come over on Friday, which is my day off. I kept having this terrible anxiety so I decided to leave work early that day to go and get my test results. I was sitting in the doctor’s office and I felt something was wrong. I kept thinking I might be pregnant. Then the doctor asked: ’‘Do you have any idea why you are here?” I told her I was expecting the worst. Then the doctor said: There is no good way to tell you this but you are HIV-positive.“

“I have been cleaning the city since 1997. Even though it´s not easy to earn a lot in my field I managed to get a steady contract. Some people might be surprised but I really love my work. Through the years I met many interesting people and every day is different from the other. It feels good to support my family financially. A few years ago I was even able to buy an apartment for me, my wife and our girl. I really consider myself a happy man.”
