My story fighting HIV
By PinkUk founder Dave Walsh
Hi friends, fingers crossed we’ll celebrate the festive season in a more traditional style in the UK and elsewhere than we were able to last year; so please keep an eye out at PinkUk for info. But before we turn on the Christmas tree lights, we should note the annual commemoration for World AIDS Day on Wednesday, 1 December.
Obviously it remembers everyone around the world including those in the LGBTQ+ communities who have lost their lives from an even longer-running pandemic. I was diagnosed as HIV positive in 1999 at a time when HIV anti-viral treatments were only just beginning to make a difference.
Luckily for me, by the time I was diagnosed with HIV, treatments were able to stop you from passing to full AIDS and likely death. Just a few years earlier, it did.
My CD4 count went as low as seven, which is within defined medical AIDS levels. I had years of a treatment regime which involved my taking multiple tablets across the day, starting at 6am, and complex instructions to follow the rest of the day. Now I only take one pill a day and there are new options such as monthly injections. Also, of course, we have PREP pills for HIV-negative people (free on England's NHS). All thanks to advances in medicine. I will take a moment on 1 December to reflect on the past, but also appreciate the improving medical outlook. Then I’ll have some safe fun in the festive season. Hope you do, too.

Well, PinkUk thinks this is a dream.
