How do I deal???

Oct 24, 2002

My mother is HIV+ but does not want to tell us. She is very ill currently with her Dr. thinking there's nothing more he can do for her. How do I tell my brothers & sisters of her condition. I live in Africa where stigma is quite a thing to deal with.

Response from Mr. Shernoff

Unfortunately it is impossible for me to give you advice. You know your siblings and I do not. You have to decide what is the best way to proceed. I apologize for not being able to be of any assistance.

Michael Shernoff, MSW
