46664


i watched some of the 46664 concert on tv saturday night... for you guys that don't know... 46664 is an african response to the global HIV AIDS epidemic that invites the whole world to take the fight in hand... the number 46664 was Nelson Mandela's prison number on robben island...ok...
so i was feeling a bit down and out, some sort of bug got hold of me...some would think it was just babellas, but i think i actually had some sort of bug...or maybe food poisoning...anyway 46664 is all about aids...it made me think...i wrote a post on dating a while back and still this issue stays an issue for me...i live in africa...i see aids every day... i hear of aids every day... i'm encouraged to eat garlic for goodness sakes.... it's really a in your face kind of thing... and maybe because my ex was such a man whore and after i realised that he could actually have aids... and that subsequently i could actually have it too....it dawned on me...this epidemic does not discriminate against color, race or status, it will slap you right in the face... its fact...i had to be present at the doctors appointment for our gardeners hiv test, he was very sick and we then asked his permission to have him tested... and he was HIV positive... i cannot tell you how that moment made an impact on me...it was so real and honest and it shook me to the core...so don't really know what my point is... just that like the motto of 46664 says...
it's in our hands... be careful and be safe...ok?

on a lighter note i have to tell you about my first hiv test...i actually went to the doctor cause i suspected that i had a piece of glass in my heel... long story i was moving and of course broke something and also never wear shoes... so i had to step in the glass...bladi bladi bladi blah.... so my dad...bless his soul... insisted that i should have it checked out... and if nothing else to get a injection for foot and mouth...just to be safe... he's like that...so off i hopped to the nearest doctor who turned out to be the fucking hunk of the century...he had no wedding ring on so i was totally enjoying my doctor's appointment...there was some unfortunate realities i couldn't get away from...like i was working in my garden and didn't bother to scrub my feet...so there i was lying with my sweet ass in the air and the doctor going at it with my foot...and the two dirtiest feet you've ever seen...he insisted that there was no glass embedded into my heel...and i kept on telling him, doc...check again...seriously it's painful...and during this examination...we chatted away like nobody's business...he was actually flirting with me...and i needless to say lapped this up like the cute puppy i am...so i was aware that my time was limited with this guy...and even though it was such fun him poking at my foot with a scalpel... i maybe have to make it clear that i was not attached... and ready and willing to have him have his way with me... i mean... take me out any time... so we were chatting after he bandaged me up...and i said it...the only thing i could think of to make sure... beyond a shadow of a doubt... that he would know that i was not married... so i said...
will you please test me for HIV, my ex really screwed around and i just wanna be on the safe side...
fuck i think that was a passion killer right there...needless to say he didn't have his way with me... he did however take the time, after he got the results, to phone me and personally tell me that i should not fear a day longer... the dreaded killer wasn't lurking around in my veins...he was so cute...sigh...he can be glad i moved otherwise i would have bothered him with all sorts of gynecological problems...i'm a sick puppy... excuse me i think i still have that bug...

14 COMMENTS....bite me!:

Hahahaha. Yip. That really must have been a passion killer! *cringe*. But then again, you were in pain and under presssure so I can understand how that's the best you could come up with. LOL

angel said...

to be honest, i've lost track of the number of times i've been tested!
at my old job we had an aids awareness campaign and i had a test everytime!

Ruby said...

you really know how to chase them away don't you sweet ass???? but as glug said......you were injured, and nobody's mind works properly when you're in pain...we'll excuse you this once;-)

sweetass RSA said...

glug: good heavens the things that i do under pressure... LOL indeed!

angel: i've only had two, very intimidating test!!

ruby: well thank you! this "incident" took place about 3 years ago, i have "grown" since... LOL

Ruby said...

Szarek(Will) said...

Bliksem...you really do know how to kill the romance...sis on you..hehehe :)

well think of it like this...you missed out on that one,next time you wont have a problem...I HOPE

Living Bridget said...

I cannot believe you killed a budding romance like that! Sies!

I had a horrific test as well. The guy was terrified of me or my request. To think there are still these kinds of people around.

sweetass RSA said...

ruby: not to worry hun!

will: definately won't do that again..LOL

bridget: shame on me, sies...i know...

Lol - excellent, never heard of anyone using the suggestion of an HIV test as a pick up line. But seriously, hot doctors are a problem - because we're hardly ever looking ravishingly sexy when we're in their offices.

Smoooooth! Can't believe things didn't work out.

Simply Curious said...

I had my first test when I was 18 and about to get married. I think it's the law here that you have to be tested. I could be wrong. I remember being scared to death, even though I had always been safe. HIV is a scary disease.

When the doctor called you, you should've dropped the hint then, and asked if he wanted to get together over a cup of coffee to discuss ways to be safe. ;)

mozi: i know...the receptionist should at least warn you...beware cute doctor!

kyk: after the comments i got i think i'll have to list this experience as one of my most embarrassing...more ways than one!

curious: the way the whole experience went i would have ended with my foot in my mouth in any case... case closed moving on!

I watched Lives set only it gave me good bumps when they did lightning crashes I almost cried they rule the world

It's good to get tested regularly...we do it once a year for the medical aid points.
