How Do I tell her

Jan 16, 2007

I tested +ve 5 months ago but I haven't been able to disclose this to my wife. Please advice on the best way to handle this.

Response from Dr. Horwath

You need to tell your wife. There is no way you can continue without informing her. If you are concerned about her reaction, you need to consider how much worse it might be if you continue to withhold this information. In any case, you need to tell her now. It is the right thing to do.
