ABSTRACT
The article presents a reprint of the article "Don't Tell Me on Friday," by Thomas Richards, which appeared on the April 5, 1986 issue of the British Medical Journal. The author relates his experience on being positive for antibodies to human T cell lymphotropic virus III. He was shocked upon learning his condition and even considered committing suicide. But, through good counseling from both the doctor at the special clinic and a clinical psychologist, he soon accepted his condition. Knowing that a person is positive gives him a chance to alter his lifestyle for his own good and the people around him.
