10 years ago on this date (August 4, 2007) was the first time I was exposed to his HIV. Before this date, we had never had unprotected sex.
I was very adamant about it. Your wedding night is the time to consummate the marriage.
Well, my wedding night we did that but he also knowingly exposed me to his HIV.
I trusted him with my life and he took my life into his own hands and chose to lie in the most explainable way!
From that trip to the doctor when he said his HIV test was negative, to his mom telling me to ask him about HIV and he said he didn't know what she was talking about just days before the wedding.
To having unprotected sex with his wife on our wedding night.
To the doctor telling me that I WAS HIV POSITIVE.
To me finding out about other women and possibly men he was sleeping with, and al the way up to sentencing he lied.
When the judge said, "we have you on a recorded conversation admitting that you had HIV since 2002" the lies stopped.
I was 24 years old on this day August 4, 2007, and on this day my body was introduced to HIV.
