    Disclosure of HIV positive stirs up

    While he publicly disclosed his diagnosis back in November, the previous Two and a Half Men star is as yet changing in accordance with his quandary. 'Individuals say, 'What does it feel like to be the substance of HIV?'. I'm similar to, 'Euugh, unintentional'. Be that as it may, if that is its truth, at that point it is'.

    In any case, Charlie is by all accounts endeavoring to utilize the determination as an impetus for turning his life around. Performer Charlie Sheen said to NBC's "Today" program Tuesday that he was detected as HIV-positive around 4 years back, which several people who realized it charged money for him to maintain the secret.

    "I'm here to concede that I am in actuality HIV-positive," Sheen disclosed to NBC's Matt Lauer. "Furthermore, I need to put a stop to this invasion, this torrent of assaults and of sub-facts and exceptionally unsafe and inconsistent stories that are about the [alleged] threatening the health of such a significant number of others, which couldn't possibly be more off-base."

    Did Sheen infect others with HIV?

    Sheen, 50, stated he is not certain the way he obtained the disease. Given that his medical diagnosis, he claimed, he has got informed each and every sexual accomplice of his illness. He labeled it "impossible" that he got transmitted the disease to other people. He stated the medical diagnosis arrived after he experienced a few cluster headaches as well as night time sweats.

    "After a battery of tests ... they strolled into the room and stated, ''Boom, this is what's going on,'" Sheen said.

    "It's a hard three letters to retain," he said. "It's a defining moment in one's life."

    The blackmail after “the talk”

    He declared he discovered the medical diagnosis to people he believed he really trusted, however, a number of them asked for money to keep on being silent relating to the issue. He paid out those persons "in the millions," he said. Afterward, in the program, Lauer declared that Sheen disclosed to him it had been greater than $10 million.

    "We're discussing shakedowns," Sheen said. "I've paid those individuals."

    One of the particular people, he mentioned, was a whore who came into his washroom, took a mobile phone picture of his medicine and then threatened to sell off the photo.

    Asked as to whether he would keep on paying the general population he'd been paying, he stated: "Not after today, I'm most certainly not."

    'I have mad gratitude, 100 %. Thank you. My life is more fluid, it’s more courageous, it’s more heroic,' said Sheen.

    While he deliberate opened up to the world about his positive status, the news appeared to have the anticipated outcome of forcing abstinence on the famously debased star.

    'HIV isn't the best conversation starter. So it has occurred because of every other person and myself having the information, and that is fine,' he clarified, however, at that point he included 'I make jokes about the diagnosis since you need to. Generally, it's simply "awkward city."'

    Luckily, it appears the Hot Shots star has found a startling reward originating from his present absence of sexual activity.

    'You'd be amazed the amount more you can achieve and the amount more you can realize when you're not simply endeavoring to engage in sexual relations.'

    His new outlook has driven Charlie to be philosophical about the fate of his sexual coexistence too.

    'It’s fine. I mean, sex isn’t going anywhere. It’s still there. And if available, awesome. If not, no big deal. I’ll spend more time hanging with my parents, you know?'

    Versace also had a lot of obstacles

    After the book of Orth was published, the Versace family issued a decrying statement, saying that they "deplore this mercantile invasion of their intimacy and slanderous aggression on the reputation of someone who was a victim of a horrible crime ".

    Smith does not see it like that. "Even if it was not HIV" Even though it was a form of cancer that he overcame, the Versace, this great creator and this great life force, overcame the disease, and during this illness he did face a tremendous psychological burden - knowing that falling ill not only has health consequences, but could ruin everything you live for and you have built for yourself and your family.

    To include this detail in the show was a vital thematic movement, which contrasted Versace against his killer: while the designer persevered to overcome great obstacles, "Andrew was defeated by them," says Smith. "Versace also had a lot of obstacles, he became a great success, and a great employer, and a great uncle to his nephews and nieces, Versace overcame death, and then death came out of nowhere. is heartbreaking. "

    The main thesis of the season, says Smith, is: "If you cannot communicate to the world through creation, you communicate it through destruction." Cunanan, "a truly intelligent young man who has never hurt anyone, ends up doing this horrible and horrible thing."

    Donatella Versace, meanwhile, has maintained for decades that her brother was shot by ear cancer, not H.I.V. She told New York Magazine in 2006 that the reason her brother retired from public view in 1994 and 1995 was "because his ear was so big," claiming that because of the position of cancer, he was inoperable. Miraculously, she added, "she was declared healed six months before being murdered, we celebrated, we drink champagne and all, and six months later he was killed."

    HIV basics: What is it?

    What is HIV?

    Like many other virus around us, HIV is also a virus which attacks our immune system. T-helper cells, which are a type of white blood cells in our body, are the first to be attacked by this virus, the virus after attacking it starts to replicate inside and make copies of it inside T helper cells which are also called CD4 cells.

    Now as the virus is dividing itself, it weakens a person’s immune system and if they are not treated on time it can be harder to fight off the various diseases and infections associated with it.

    Transmission of HIV:

    Where is it from? Below are some of the routes from where it enters the human body.

    • HIV is usually spread by the shared drug needles among druggies.

    • In some cases, it is spread through body contact with the blood of another infected person.

    • It is also transmitted through unsafe intercourse with an infected individual.

    • Mothers can transfer it to their babies during childbirth or pregnancy

    HIV Symptoms:

    Like any other disease don’t ever rely on your symptoms alone. Make sure you are properly tested before you conclude something. Some of HIV symptoms are:

    • Swollen glands

    • On and off flu episodes

    • Body rash

    • A sore throat

    • Joint pain and muscle ache

    • Vomiting

    • Night sweats’

    HIV diagnosis:

    It is diagnosed by a blood test to see the presence of HIV antibodies.

    HIV Treatment:

    Researchers have come up with medicine which can easily fight HIV infection if the treatment is started earlier. These drugs and therapies increase the quality of life and extend patient years, because of which there is a decrease in deaths recently.

    HIV outbreak:

    In 1920 HIV outbreak first appeared in Congo. Afterward it was seen in other parts of the world too. Then in 2013 around 35 million individuals were reportedly living with HIV. This number has been decreased greatly due to early prognosis and treatment options.

    HIV is not as deadly as we think it is, people around us are living perfectly normal life with it. You just have to be cautious not to share your things with others once you are infected with it, must take your medicines on time as patient compliance is an important factor in eradicating it from the human body.
