Parental syndrome

Today, my husband and I waited 6 years to have sex due to religion. We finally married and everything was great, until he enlisted in the military and was STD tested. My parents never felt the need to tell me I was born with HIV. FML

Ok, I dont know how old you are but lets assume 18. So you would be born in 2001. If you were born in 2001 with HIV, the chance of you living this long without going to AIDS is crazy. It's even crazier you didn't even know you had it. This post is fake as shit.

(Nic) As unlikely as this is, it IS possible. There's a gene mutation (CKR5) that renders people immune to HIV. You can be a "elite controller", meaning after 10 years with HIV, people with a viral load of less than 50 copies per millilitre of blood. They're still carriers, they don't need treatment (though they should be tested regularly), they don't get sick any more than the rest of us, and they don't get AIDS.
If she's an elite controller, she could have grown up never knowing, could have given it to her husband immediately or after many years of unprotected sex, and the military testing regime is known to catch diseases like HIV before they've manifested.
It is a highly unlikely chain of events though, and if true, her parents should be crucified for not telling her.

also to add magic Johnson no longer has aids out hiv and has been free of it since the early 2000's i find it highly unlikely she had it and never knew so either she's lying about that or her family is covering fight her cheating saying she was born with it

If you were born with HIV and your parents were hiding it from you. Why didn’t it ever come up with your dr when you moved out of your parents place.

By the way your parents are assholes for not telling you that you have HIV.

Have you been on mysterious medication your whole life without knowing it as without that medication you very likely would now have AIDS rather than HIV if this was true.
