I want this letter to be a warning to all the mothers out there, to keep a closer watch on their teenage daughters.
I am 14 years old and attending a secondary school. I have been going out with a man who is 3 times my age. Since I have been going out with him, I have no need for money or food.
The fact is that six of my school friends are also seeing the same man, and the word is that he has other girls in other schools.
What my friends do not know is that I have tested positive for HIV, and I am scared, too scared to even tell my mother. I do not know how many of my friends are infected, but I have not told them about me yet.
I told the guy about it, and he said he knows I have it because he had it a long time. I am so sad right now and very depressed.
I do not know what to do. I do not want to die.
This article may be old but the message still stands firm up until this day, protect yourself, use a condom every time.
