World Aids Day

I almost forgot that today is 1st of December till I went through my blog and check the number of entries I have made in November..that was when it struck to me that today is 1st Dec. I don't know what I was thinking earlier when Jim send me an image file as he said - for the sake of World Aids Day. I simply accept the file.....and thats it.....I guess its just one of those days *sigh*.

So, as it is World Aids Day, here's a red ribbon from my side...



This is the 19th World AIDS Day, the 25th year since the first case of AIDS was identified and 10 years since the formation of UNAIDS, the U.N. arm formed to fight the virus.

I often asked myself how will I feel if I found that I have an Aids? I might soung a bit ignorant here but the thought always gave me a fright...for me its like - how long am I gonna live..another year may be...

I always admire the spirit shown by soma Aids/Hiv patient for not losing their enthusiasm or spirit after knowing that they hav Aids.

Here's the image file sent by Jim "For World Aids Day"

Yeah, even I used to think that same thought... gave me nightmares. Already got myself tested a couple of times and you have no idea how relieving it is to see the result.

Belated Happy World AIDS days Biteii.

i remembered getting an HIV test done...

dat was wen i was having my kidney problems and lotsa blood tests,urine tests etc etc...well, lotsa tests were done ....

even though one did not indulge in things which can lead to having HIV+...it just isn't a great feeling to wait for the results to come out...

some months back, there was a blood donation camp held in my office and I too donated my blood. Before that all tests were tone and we got the result later...and to my relief, its negative. A mug was given to us and whenever I used that mug, i told myself...a proof that I am HIV negative... :)
