“Obviously I was stunned. But there were already so many negative things happening in my life at the same time I couldn’t deal with talking to anyone about this right away.

“The reason I waited this long was because, between then and now, things were either really good or really bad in my life. And I didn’t want to make things worse or diminish the good times. What I learned from all this is that there is never a good time.

“I understand that a lot of you are going to reach out to try and help me, or tell me that there’s some sort of treatment available.

“But like I said before, I kindly ask that you don’t.”

Jessie Colter says he’s ‘already made peace’ with illness

Colter, who has worked in gay porn for more than a decade, told followers he’s “already made peace” with the illness.

“Please don’t be sad or upset for me. What I need now more then tears and sympathy is smiles and happiness,” he said.

“What I need now is feeling good and feeling loved, laughing and spending time with people who I care about.

“I need to make everyday count, because exactly how much time I have left is undetermined. I could be around for a couple of years or couple of decades, but I need to be realistic.

“I’ve lived an incredible life, a life most people dream of having, and for that I am very fortunate and grateful.”

“But my life isn’t over yet. There’s still time to make new memories. So even though yesterday was my 38th birthday, I plan on having more birthdays to celebrate as well as other joyous occasions that I very much look forward to.”

“Just know that I am OK. I am not scared. I am not sad. I’m just doing my best with what I’ve got left.

“That’s all we can do. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I love you all.”
