Postal HIV test
When I was in London the other day, I came across a poster advertising postal HIV tests. This is a great idea. It is supported by the Terence Higgins Trust.
From time to time I work with people who are struggling with the guilt from an unnecessary and potential damaging sexual encounter. They are anxious about the impact on their permanent relationship and are wracked with shame and remorse. I can help them remember not to do it again and learn from their mistake. Sometimes we forget to value our important relationships.
But some are also anxious about HIV and infecting their loved one. Making their foolish sexual encounter even more of a disaster. So this postal test is really helpful.
