  1. Ewooo! Chai! Alu emeee!
    Hopelessness and despair as a result of testing HIV positive should be something of the past by now, considering the many fantastic advances that medical science has made in its various researches on the subject of HIV/AIDS. Today, HIV carriers could live their normal lives just like any other individual, and die a natural death that is not attributive to the disease. The greatest miracle of the whole thing is that they could marry and bear forth children with pure, untainted blood. And the drugs are free.

    However, the society does not help matters in this regard. The attitude of stigmatization is virtually an inseparable part of the Nigerian society. Hense it is only a tough-minded, tough-skinned person that could live with the disease, and sadly, this woman was not that. I wonder if the doctor or whoever that broke that news to her ever took time to counsel her.
