Till date, people keep asking whether or not HIV/AIDS is real. Though it is possible to live with the disease today, for some, the reality of being HIV positive remains harsh.
A Ghanaian man living with HIV has shared his experience after having sex with a lady in hopes of spreading the deadly disease with her.
According to the man who wants to remain anonymous, he is unable to sleep after having unprotected sex with the said young woman.
He narrated that he met the lady on a Facebook group, 'Bring It On' (BIO) and eventually invited her to his place to 'chop' her, something that is making him feel 'so uncomfortable'.
"Recently I met a lady on BIO, invited her over and did with her without protection. But after she left, I've been having nightmares and feel so uncomfortable. I'm not of myself. I'm so sad and have the feeling that I lost myself", he told one member of the BIO group, the same platform he met the lady.
He said, as an engineer who has what it takes to be a man, he's still not happy and needed support from the group members.
"I'm engineer with everything I want but I'm not happy. I need help and support from the BIO family. I don't want to be exposed please", he wrote in a Whatsapp communication sighted by Ghanaguardian.com.
