      #239974 - 06/16/08 10:49 PM

I wanted to know. I have recently started seeing someone. Whos neg. Iam poz. He knows this,and is fine with this.. The problem is, his ex-girlfriend has found out this and is now talking alot of people about it. Im just wondering if its illegal for her to be disclosing my status all over the place? If I can do anything about this? If theres anyone whom can help me with this that would be great. I have no idea where to else to ask.. thanks...

It's such a pain when people feel the need to talk about your business. There really isn't anything that can be done, except hold your head high and look people in the eye.

While confidentiality laws protect you in the work place, healthcare, etc. Your confidentiality isn't protected from general gossip. Since it's true you can't threaten to sue for slander.

It's just a reminder to be very careful whom you tell in the first place. Once you tell someone you can't undo it and you have no control over whom they tell.

have you had an encounter with this person? If so how did you handle it?
Im pretty sure Iam gonna have a run in with this girl. Im not sure of how to handle it if shes freakin. My counselor says if that happens. and she discloses to ppl around my house. To either write a letter about hiv or get some pamphlets and put them in their mail box's.. I live in a low income housing with my young son. Im more worried about what its gonna do to him. :-S

I take it you live in Canada, I live in Indianapolis Indiana and here someone can get into BIG trouble for disclosing someone statice Fortunatly I have never been in this situation everyone that knows me knows I am Positive and I could care less what others think, I am so sorry this is happening to you and I pray things will work out for you and your son in not affected by this mean spirited person Try to remember God don't like Ugly Peace and Light Andy

Yes I live in Canada, Unfortunately there are no laws in canada about ppl disclosing others status.
Its kinda funny you say God dont like ugly. My bf tells me his ex is a born again Christian. Or at least trying to be.
Thanks for the reply, Made my day:) or night !
