my husband just tested positive too. I tested negative, but need to redo the tests every few months. I am devastated, but we are working on this together. our first appointment with the specialist is today, so hopefully we will have more info. I would love to find a few negative wives to form a support group. Anyone interested? How do we do it?

Hi - I found out my fiance (now husband) was HIV positive a day before our wedding. We were in Mexico and had to take a blood test prior to getting married. We didn't even give it a thought - imagine our shock when we had to drive an hour away to a strange place to have some strangers tell us the news. A few hours before the wedding, we were advised we could not legally be married in Mexico due to this test result. Well, happily, we got up our strength and had an "illegal" wedding at the beach and then we got married by the JP at home. We had confirming tests done about a month ago and unfortunately, they confirmed my new husband's HIV positive status. I am negative. My husband does not want anyone to know so I am not able to get support from my twin sister/best friend or any friends or family. I am taking things one day at a time. A support group would be great since I have no other outlet.

You are not alone. We are meeting with the specialist this Thursday and I am very anxious about it. My husband has been sick these past few weeks and already feels despair.

I hope your meeting with the specialist was encouraging and provided you with much new hope.

Hi - Not sure of the best way to connect. Will try to find out and let you know. In the meantime, I will check in on this posting. This past week I took my husband to the dr. He was diagnosed with pneumonia and I'm afraid it is believed that he has been HIV+ longer than we originally suspected. However, Dr. is very encouraging and my husband is now feeling much better. Since we are newlyweds, the most difficult part right now is all the well-meaning people that keep asking us when we are going to have children. Everyone knows how much we love kids and can't understand why I'm not pregnant. This is extremely painful for us. We are looking to see if there are any options for us but right now I only want to get my husband better.

I hope your visit to the dr. went better than ours.

Take care! : )
