I hope it opens your eyes...
Though I'm not a fan of Lifetime movies, I saw this on the TV Guide and thought I would watch it. Why you ask? Well for one, I'm HIV positive and I wanted to see how this movie was done. Most movies are so stupid I can't see how they help open anyone's eyes that HIV is not a "gay disease". I'm a heterosexual, white female. I tested positive when I was 22 years old. Though I was not as young as the girl portrayed in this movie, I had the same reaction. You think your life is over. I still have anxiety attacks, and my 10 year anniversary of being diagnosed is next year! I've been very lucky, not currently on any medications, engaged to a wonderful non-positive man, and just got a new well paying job. I REALLY hope that high school kids see this movie and open their eyes, you are young but you are not invincible! It CAN happen to you. Though this movie is a bit hokey at times, (yes I used the word hokey), I think it did a good job of getting the point across. Use a condom and when the guy says your his first, or he's always used condom's before and he will pull out, you need to get up and leave. Make him wear a condom all the time! You never know, no matter what he says, you never know. We can stop the spread of this disease if everyone would just love themselves enough to use protection.
