I simply cannot understand bug chasers. Some people have claimed it’s to acquire the money & health benefits they think a serious, even fatal condition can entitle them. Although today being HIV+ may not be viewed as unavoidably terminal as it was in past decades. But the many costs of living with HIV, not just the monetary ones, are crazy to me.
Well, I dunno wanna have any serious disease, period. Now I did have regular sex with a poz guy, my first partner. Who told me about his condition before we even met. Problem was, I loved him. I weighed the risks, and with the understanding that our sex would only be safe, as it was, we lived together.
He died of AIDS, from a sudden opportunistic disease, despite his low viral counts and excellent health until then. I remain negative. So for me, having sex with an HIV+ guy does not seem unusual. But deliberately having UNSAFE sex seems suicidal. Certainly a sign of a possible psychological disorder. Your own thoughts?
