chat rooms for negative partners?
      #99812 - 06/12/04 04:12 PM

Hi
I'm new here, my husband was diagnosed 8 weeks ago. I'm negative. He was infected before we were married but didn't know. I would really like to chat with people in a similar situation. Does anyone know of a chat room for HIV affected partners. We have been married for eight years and have two children. Thanks.

Post your email address here. There are lots of women here in your situation who can relate to what you are going through.

I have also been married for 8years and have 2kids, youngest 1year old. My husband was diagnosed 5months ago and I mariculously tested negative although we have been having unprotected sex since we met. It has been a rollercoast of emotions especially the 1st few weeks. I was initially relieved that myself and the baby are negative, then I was angry that maybe my husband was unfaithful to me, then guilty that I was doubtful and blaming him. His CD count is very low and the doctor said he was most likely infected before we met.
Lately I have been feeling so depressed that we may loose him soon . I actually feel so helpless because I don't know what to do to support him. He has started on antiretrovirials. I just need to chat with others in similar situation because right now I am scared.

There's no reason to prepare a funeral just yet, because:

and these are quite good these days at keeping people healthy.
As for your question on mixed status couples, I sadly cannot help.

Well hello to you all.

My finace has also just been diagnosed with HIV (just Wens) and has started on a cocktail of 5 drugs. Don't know what his tcell count is but viral load is about 90. I am feeling quite alone, confused, angry and scared. We have been together off and on for about ten years and have a 4 year old daughter. My biggest concern is that he seems so ill. Already had pneumonia (In december), has lost about 50 pounds, has thrush all the time, coughs wickedly, runs fevers and has those god awful night sweats. Is this a bad sign? He just started medication on Friday but that seems to make him feel worse. Any of you that can offer advice/support or tell me what I can expect? Does he have the same life expectancy as anyone else? Have any of you or your children suffered because of your spouses diagnosis? Any info is greatly appreciated.

I dont know of any chat rooms either for negative women with positive husbands I am one. I have been married for one year and we found out 2 weeks before our wedding. peple ask me why I wnet through with it . i have some second thoughts sometimes. I really dont want to get close. I have 3 children from a previous marriage. We never have unprotected sex, but for some reason we dont have it very often. At least not for me. There is no other intimacy either. you can email me at twinkimom@hotmail.com. I would love to chat

hello- My husband was diagnosed with hiv 2 weeks after our first anniversary.

That was over2 years ago now. I would love to find a group that is mainly for women like us, but have never found one.

These 2 years have been hard for us. First we got real spiritual and started to go to church alot, then we got into all the issues that are involved. Long story I'll talk to anyone

My email is mejackie@hotmail.com

I love my husband very much, but we are presently contemplating seperation. A great support group that is for all that are infected and affected is an msn group named poz outlook.

Please email me.
