Unhappy I'm going to die

There is no good and gentle way to say this....
I have been diagnosed with HIV
I got it from a random guy I was stupid and slutty enough to have sex with some time ago(and for that I deserve it)
I'm scared,I've known for a week or so,but for some complicated reasons I'm the only one informed,my parents don't know yet....
I don't want to die,but there's a voice in my head telling me I should just die,not tell my parents and refuse treatment
This is probably a huge bunch of "I don't really.need to know this",but I want to tell because vt are a big part of my life,and I want to relieve the pressure I've had on me....
Sorry for taking up your time

You need to tell someone like your parents or a doctor. Many people get HIV and live, as long as you get medicated and don't let it turn to aids you should be fine. You are very appreciated here and I want you to know you should be alive.
Please get help,

I know I've already told you this, but your parents need to know. They would want to know. I have no doubt you're scared, and can't imagine what you're feeling right now, but telling your parents and seeking treatment will do you worlds of good. And like Francisco said, there have been amazing medical advancements, and new treatments are being discovered everyday for ailments. You've got to give yourself a chance, and live the life you deserve.

It's imperative that you get help in this situation. Without some sort of treatment it, you'll eventually get very sick (within about 10 years usually) and be vulnerable to AIDs. HIV patients have lived on for many, many years if they received treatments. So just think; is it better for you to tell your parents so you can get treatment or lose precious time in the future that you could have used to be the person you always dreamed to be just because you didn't get the treatment you needed. But it's ultimately your descision on what to do. I'd recommend looking up information about HIV online. Maybe this could get you a better understanding of this information. But again, I recommend that you get help very soon because if you don't do it, then when will you do it? When it's too late?

I'm really sorry to hear this. But firstly, you absolutely do not deserve it. No one does. And secondly, you are not taking up people's time. I hope you feel a bit better reading people's replies here.

Maybe you can have a doctor or someone like that tell your parents? Or help you tell them. I can imagine how it would be a crazy hard thing to do. I don't think you have to do it alone though. Good luck.

I'm so sorry that this has happened to you. It's not your fault you know.. you only did what many teenagers do and that guy should have known better. It makes me sick that there are people out there that would do something like this to other people. I don't know a whole lot about HIV but I have heard that it doesn't work too fast... I can tell you my grandpa had cancer for 14 years before he died even though they told him at first he only had about a year. He had to go through treatment but he stayed positive and enjoyed life as much as possible and because of that look how long he was around. He didn't suffer much until his last year and I think he did pretty good. I don't think you should give up you should make the best of the time you have left because you deserve it. you never know how long you have and you may be here for a very long time still so don't give up okay? I'm always here for you if you ever want to talk and again I am really so sorry.

Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We've got a lot to learn
God knows we're worth it
No, I won't give up!

You need to get treatment as soon as possible. Without treatment, HIV usually progresses to AIDS within a decade. With treatment, this can be delayed by decades or indefinitely. You also decrease the chance of passing HIV on to anyone else. With proper treatment, you can live a nearly normal life and not have significantly decreased quality of life or lifespan.

HIV treatment today is very good. The treatment can suppress the replication of the virus and stop it from causing significant damage. This is much more significant when you get treatment shortly after exposure.

You need to tell your doctor and get treatment as soon as possible. Depending on your age and where you live, the doctor might not need to tell your parents, and probably won't if you say you don't want them to know. You should still tell your parents, they care about you and can offer you support.

I am sorry dude and this is really saddening. You should tell you parents and get treated. No one deserves to die for making a mistake dude.
