So I went last week to donate plasma in order to get some extra cash. I was denied as it turns out that I've contracted HIV at some point in the last 6 months. Apparently I'm not going to live to see 30 if there isn't some sort of major advance in the treatment of the disease. I don't really have much to say right now. The gravity of the situation has just set in today and I don't really know how to react. I've told my family and my girlfriend, who has thankfully not contracted the disease, and they've taken it much than I have up to this point. I am going to die and I can't do a damn thing about it.
