"For information only and not for publication before TX" A Story - Marty Is Forced To Change His Ways Marty is called upon to treat Danny, a young man found in a shop window, high on drugs, hallucinating, and HIV+, but as soon as he sees Danny, it's clear that they know each other. Danny reveals that he's not taking his HIV medication, and that he is essentially homeless, kicked out by his mother for his sexuality. Marty is devastated - this is one of the men he slept with the night before, and he can't remember using protection. His health and future in jeopardy, Marty struggles to maintain professionalism whilst treating Danny, who doesn't remember him. With his world crashing down around him, Marty snaps at Danny and excuses himself, and when Jade asks after him, she's shot down. Later, when Danny reconciles with his mother, after revealing to her that he's homeless, Marty watches on, bitter and hurt that his own parents want nothing to do with him. Outside, Marty breaks down, and admits the extent of his drug-taking and sexual experiences to Jade. She's heartbroken that her friend felt forced into this lifestyle through loneliness, and reassures him that he isn't alone. The friends have reconciled, and Marty arranges a trip to the sexual health clinic to reduce his chances of getting HIV. Determined to prove to Marty that he's got a support system, she dials his mother's number, and leaves him to answer. However, Marty's father answers, and tells Marty not to call again, as it upsets his mother. At an all time low, Marty bumps into Danny again, who's off out to carry on from last night, despite his mother inviting him back to live at home, and he invites Marty along. It's hard, but Marty refuses. Unlike Danny, he doesn't want to prioritise partying over loved ones anymore, and he joins Jade at the pub instead, waving goodbye to his dangerous lifestyle.
