Family and Friends >> My Loved One Has HIV/AIDS


Brothre w/ HIV and disclosure
      07/01/06 12:18 PM

I have a brother whom I am very close with and love dearly. He was diagnosed with HIV 2 years ago and is still not on meds. His viral load is between 50k and 80k and cd4 around 350, I think. Anyway, He has been dating a girl for six months and I asked him if he disclosed and he said he just can not do it. He is too afraid to lose her. They already have a rocky relationship and I do think she might leave him too for the fact that he has been lying to her about this for six months. He says he always uses condoms. I asked him what about oral, and he said yes to that too. But I do not believe that one bit. Why would she use condoms for oral? She was married for the last 20 years with 3 kids. If she was anything like me, I did not know anything or even think about HIV until I found out about my brother. Anyway, we have had this talk 20 times and he refuses to disclose and said he will never speak to me again if I do... I know he is scared, but now I am so worried about her and also can he get in trouble with the law? I checked with our health department in Massachusetts and they told me it is up to everyone to protect theirselves and not take someone's word. Is this true? I keep hearing about people getting in trouble for non disclosure. I don't know what to do and I feel so guilty. Can I get in trouble?
